This paper describes the fundamental characteristics of vertical heat transfer due to thermal convection during the cooling period (September to February) in the northern part of Lake Biwa. It is well known that the thermal convection during the cooling period is the main mechanisms of DO transfer from the water surface to the bottom of lake. The mixing mechanism caused by thermal convection is investigated numerically using 3-D CFD model. It is shown that thermal convection cells are observed in the computational domain, changing the positions of submerging portion temporally. Then, a stochastic model with Monte-Carlo simulation is proposed to consider the results of numerical experiments. It is pointed out that the characteristics of the spatial flow patterns with Fractal structure are reproduced by the model.
