Hydrology – 12 WATER LOSS FROM THE LAKE

WATER LOSS FROM THE LAKE

Water leaves Crater Lake by seepage and evaporation only. For this report, seepage loss was first calculated, and evaporation loss was then computed as the residual needed to balance the relationship between supply, seepage, and change in lake level (table 6).
