Lake-Balance Modeling Using MATLAB

In a number of publications, we used a simple energy-based lake balance model to estimate precipitation and evaporation during highstands of paleolakes in Argentina and Kenya. The highstands were reconstructed from radiocarbon-dated paleoshorelines of landslide-dammed lakes and closed-basin rift lakes. Here we publish the MATLAB code to estimate the evaporation over land surface and water surface, which is the core of the lake-balance model used in our research.
