Abstract

Two hypotheses concerning wind-driven current systems in Alaska's oriented lakes are discussed. The first describes end-currents in the lakes returning upwind due to a hydrostatic pressure gradient on the downwind side. The second describes end-currents flowing in a windward direction and being related to the angle at which the waves approach the shoreline near the ends. These hypotheses are evaluated in the light of recent field work designed to test them.
