Short summary
This paper employs a one-dimensional hydrodynamic ice model to simulate ice cover and thermal structure of dimictic Lake Mendota, WI, USA, over a continuous 104-year period (1911–2014) with the purpose of better understanding how the changing climate will affect lakes. It is shown that air temperature and wind speed changes have occurred in stages and ice cover and lake thermal structure have responded in a nonlinear way to these changes.
