Abstract

The mass-transfer and water-budget techniques of calibrating a reservoir for evaporation were evaluated through a study of Lake Michie, N.C. The techniques appear adequate for estimation of lake evaporation and net seepage in humid regions where lake storage is affected by streamflow and ground-water seepage, under conditions no more adverse than those affecting Lake Michie. The analysis of 25 months of mass-transfer and water-budget data collected at Lake Michie indicates pronounced seasonal variation in both evaporation and seepage.
