The Methodology of Long-Range Forecast
State Hydrological Institute, St. Petersburg, Russia
Large inland seas and lakes are located within arid and semi-arid zone. The water balance components and level of lakes are significantly variable. The crucial issue in modern hydrology and water resources management is the revealing of periodicities in the dynamics of lake characteristics and their account for development of the methodology of long-range forecast of lake levels.
