Most hydro-electric schemes change the seasonal variation of river discharge. As a result of this the temperature in lakes downstream of a hydro-electric plant will be changed. The numerical model described in this paper has been developed to calculate the change in the vertical temperature distribution. The model has been applied to two Norwegian lakes.
