When temperature starts reducing in winter, lake water cools upto 4degree centegrade by convection as density increase with reduction in temp.On futher cooling, due to abnoamal expansion og water , density reduces & cold water remains at top .Then top layer frezees.Water being bad conductor of heat ,lake water below ice remains at 4 degrees & thus fishes sruvive in winter aslo.Pl make animation showing this behavier of watwe

I am working on it. But it is not easy to show it as an simulation using particle model.
It will be easier with flash animation.
I will post it here when it is done.
