Different Layers of Water in a Lake

Question: How are the layers of water in a lake differentiated?

Answer: So water level layers in a pond are differentiated by three types of layers. You have the thermocline, which is the temperature variance zone between hot and cold. It’s generally the middle of the water column. And that thermocline can adjust up or down based on ambient temperature outside and its effects on the water temperature. Epilimmion is the water above that thermocline, and the hypolimnion is the water below that thermocline.
