Is China's fifth-largest inland lake to dry-up? Incorporated hydrological and satellite-based methods for forecasting Hulun Lake water levels

Journal Article
Cai, Z., Jin, T., Li, C., Ofterdinger, U., Zhang, S., Ding, A., & Li, J. (2016)
Is China's fifth-largest inland lake to dry-up? Incorporated hydrological and satellite-based methods for forecasting Hulun Lake water levels. Advances in water resources, 94, 185-199. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.advwatres.2016.05.010
Hulun Lake, China’s fifth-largest inland lake, experienced severe declines in water level in the period of 2000-2010. This has prompted concerns whether the lake is drying up ...
