An unsteady model is formed and solved numerically in order to investigate the transient circulations in a reservoir subject to periodic heating and cooling. The numerical results reveal that there is a time lag in the response of the overall flow to the switch of the thermal forcing, and thermal instabilities play an important role in breaking the residual circulation and reversing the flow in deep waters.
