The first direct measurements of evaporation from a large high-latitude lake, Great Slave Lake, Northwest Territories, Canada, were made using eddy covariance between July 24 and September 10, 1997, and June 22 and September 26, 1998. The main body of the lake was ice-free between June 20 and December 13, 1997, and June 1, 1998, and January 8, 1999, with(More)
Calibration of hydrological models is an essential step for these models to simulate real world conditions as close as possible. Calibration is a tedious and timeconsuming process. An auto-calibration algorithm developed by Duan et al. [1] has been successfully used in hydrological modeling area. This algorithm suffers from high computational cost for(More)
Under a Canadian Foundation for Climate and Atmospheric Sciences (CFCAS) project, targeted to study the feasibility to link regional climate models with lake models, one of the tasks was to consider such a coupling in large lakes. The objective is to provide detailed information on temperature and circulation distributions of the lake to take into account(More)
Hydrological models have been increasing in complexity over the years. These models rely on their calibration to simulate real world conditions as close as possible. Calibration is a tedious and time-consuming process. An auto-calibration algorithm (SCE-UA) developed by Duan et al. [1992], has been successfully used in hydrological modeling area. This is a(More)
Canada has several of Earth's largest lakes and many small lakes. Heat storage and circulation are greatly affected by lakes. Currently the Canadian Regional climate model does not incorporate a lake component. Therefore, we are linking atmospheric and lake models for such applications as climate prediction and assessing changes in the lake water quality(More)
