Lake water temperature, hydrometeorology and lake evaporation at Paiku Co in the central Himalayas (2015-2018)

Lake water temperature, hydrometeorology and lake evaporation at Paiku Co in the central Himalayas (2015-2018)


HOBO water temperature loggers (U22-001, Onset Corp., USA) were used to monitor changes in water temperature with an accuracy of ±0.2 oC. Two water temperature profiles were installed in Paiku Co’s southern (0-42 m in depth) and northern (0-72 m in depth) basins (Fig. 1). In the southern basin, water temperature was monitored at the depths of 0.4 m, 5m, 10 m, 15 m, 20 m, 30 m and 40 m. In the northern basin, water temperature was monitored at the depths of 0.4 m, 10 m, 20 m, 40 m, 50 m, 60 m and 70 m.

To investigate local hydro-meteorology at Paiku Co, air temperature and specific humidity over the lake were monitored since June 2015 by using HOBO air temperature and humidity loggers (U12-012, Onset Corp., USA). The logger was installed in an outcrop ~2 m above the lake surface at the north part of the lake (Fig. 2).

Lake evaporation was calculated using the energy budget (Bowen-ratio) method。
