Figure 29. Measured annual cumulative evaporation from Great Slave Lake for 1997, 1998, and 1999. Each curve begins at break-up and ends at freeze-up. The graph shows a longer open-water season in 1998 than in other years associated with the 1998 El Niño, which caused earlier break-up and later freeze-up.
