Abstract

A simple and quasi-steady thermal model of Lake Vanda is presented based on reasonable thermal properties. The model leads to a possible conclusion that water temperatures up to 25℃ can be attributed to solar heating. The model also suggests that the rise in the lake level and the increase in the thickness of the isothermal convecting layer may have caused the decrease in temperatures over the past ten years.
