The purpose of this study is to construct an experimental model to determine the dependence of lake-current velocity on the preceding wind velocity. The parameters of the model are determined by linear programming, using measured wind velocity data. The model is usable in studies, in which current field of a complex lake is estimated, for example in water quality studies. With the method it may be possible to compute current velocity in sounds directly from wind velocity, and then use numerical methods for each open area of the lake.
