- On a seasonal scale, sensible heat flux (H) and latent heat flux (LE) were different from net radiation (Rn). The maximum Rn occurred in June, while the maximum of H and LE were observed in September. Besides, H showed best accordance with u*(Tw-Ta) and LE showed best accordance with u*(ew-ea) (Figure 1).
- Evaporation from Lake Serling Co was compared with two kinds of pan evaporation (D20 pan and E601B pan) and potential evaporation on land surface. The variability of conversion coefficients between lake evaporation and D20 pan, E601B pan and potential evaporation indicate that coefficients varied depending on the month and could not be defined as a single experimental value.
