In this paper, the AA. used modern observations beside Qinghai Lake and Zhuye Lake, located in the northwest margin of the Asian summer monsoon, to test the impact factors for lake evaporation. Pan evaporation near the 2 lakes is mainly related to relative humidity, temperature, vapor pressure and sunshine duration. But temperature has different impacts to lake evaporation of the 2 lakes, which can affect Holocene millennial-scale lake level changes. In addition, differences in relative humidity on the millennial-scale would be more significant, which also can contribute to asynchronous lake records
