Lake level of Zhari Namco between 2010 and 2014

Lake level of Bam Co between 2013 and 2014

Lake level of Dawa Co between 2013 and 2014

Date, (Year/Month/Day)

Water level, unit (m)

In-situ lake-level observations were conducted using HOBO water level loggers (U20-001-01), which were installed in the study lake’s littoral zone.

Because the water levels were recorded as changes in pressure (less than 0.5 cm water level equivalent), air pressure data from nearby meteorological/observing station was subtracted from the level loggers to isolate pressure changes related to water column variations.

Less than 0.5 cm
