Lake Hydrology: Theory and Application

November 2020

This presentation is to provide a basic understanding of lake water balance in general, for instance, quantifying incoming water into a lake, outgoing water from a lake, and changes in lake storage. Various theoretical and applied topics related to lake water balance will also be explored, for instance, lake watershed delineation, lake evaporation, lake area capacity curves, etc. Finally, a lake water balance example will be demonstrated.
