This work is devoted to the creation of a system of computational technologies for the correct description of thermohydrodynamic and biogeochemical processes in land water bodies by developing new mathematical models and modifying existing ones.

The first part of the work provides an overview of the current state of the problem under consideration in the study of thermohydrodynamics and biogeochemistry of land water bodies, identifies the most relevant and unsolved problems to date, which were considered by the author in the dissertation work.

The second part is devoted to a numerical study of the evolution of the vertical thermal structure of a medium-sized closed fresh water body using the example of the lake part of the Gorky reservoir using the one-dimensional LAKE model. To set realistic data on the accompanying meteorological situation and, in particular, wind speed, without involving continuous measurements, three methods have been proposed.

In the third part, the problem of correctly describing turbulence in a stratified fluid is considered, and a modified model of turbulent transport is proposed, constructed on the basis of k-epsilon closure with the involvement of models that take into account the two-way transformation of the kinetic and potential energy of turbulent pulsations and remove the restriction on the description of turbulence at large values ​​of the gradient number Richardson.

The fourth part is devoted to the study of the seasonality of the ice cover of large lakes and reservoirs of the Russian Plain and climate trends according to the JASON-1,2,3, TOPEX/Poseidon and SARAL satellite data.

The fifth part presents a three-dimensional model developed by the author for the generation, transport and sink of biogeochemical impurities in land water bodies, which complements the model of thermohydrodynamics of a closed water body.

 The seminar will be held in the form of a webinar on the Zoom platform.
