Abstract. The General Lake Model (GLM) is a one-dimensional open-source model code designed to simulate the hydrodynamics of lakes, reservoirs and wetlands. GLM was developed to support the science needs of the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON), a network of lake sensors and researchers attempting to understand lake functioning and address questions about how lakes around the world vary in response to climate and land-use change. The scale and diversity of lake types, locations… CONTINUE READING

If you mention calibration, it would be well to describe this process more fully, in particular which parameters you consider adjustable for purposes of calibration

  • 34 P., 23 line
  • Where p. 35, line 10 mentions “compare”, I wonder whether this might also imply calibration. REPLY: The initial line referred to is an introductory statement with the intent that the C17 text in Section 5.2 would decsribe the calibration process more fully. We will revise this section in the full re

These are very wide ranges of albedo

  • Please describe the conditions under which different parts of this range manifest. REPLY: The variation is discussed in the Vavrus et al

This use of “conductive heat flux from the ice or snow cover to the atmosphere” particularly triggers my thought bias as a meteorologist

  • 15 P., 13 line
  • That bias prompts me to assume that this means flux through the atmosphere’s interfacial layer, where molecular diffusion dominates. But I also wonder whether it means heat conduction through the ice. These are not equal in general, and need to be distinguished from each other. REPLY: It does mean t

The idea of energy required for mixing needs to be introC13 duced more carefully

  • 18 P., 10 line
  • If you think of the water column as continuous in space, mixing is also a continuum. But the concept here is based on discrete layers, and this indicates how much energy is required to outright include a model layer in the mixed layer. REPLY: The approach to bulk mixed layer models is well establish
