Abstract We point out some specific calculational problems arising from the elaboration of such very detailed temperature profiles, as we have obtained by means of an automatic instrumentation installed on a limnological buoy in the Agno Bay of Lake Lugano. A particular attention is devoted to the phenomenology determined by internal gravity waves. A selection of results, i. e. vertical eddy diffusion coefficient profiles related to various time intervals during September 1978, are presented and commented.
