This comment paper addresses data and analysis issues in a paper entitled
"Streamflow Input to Lake Athabasca, Canada" by Rasouli et al. (2013).
Analyses of observed and naturalized lake level data for Lake Athabasca are
redone in this comment paper with corrected hydrometric data to provide
northerners and researchers with the correct information for environmental
assessments. The comment paper also highlights the importance of including
in the analysis not only direct inflows to Lake Athabasca, but also the
hydraulic influences on lake outflow, especially when meaningful future
projections of lake levels are required for water management.
