Abstract: Hydrodynamics and water quality are closely coupled in a shallow lake via horizontal transport and sediment resuspension. The latter process is examined thru modeling and in situ field observations in Lake Balaton, Hungary. A simple model is presented which quantifies the depth-averaged concentration of bottom sediment existing in the water column as a function of wind speed, and is capable of being included in a general water quality model.
