This paper demonstrates that typical air-sea interaction models can be transferred to shallow water conditions and lakes including a depth dependent function. As depth decreases, it is assumed that exchange conditions increase. From our results it follows that the model without the shallow water correction underestimates the latent and sensible heat fluxes of a lake by about 20 %. This was shown through the comparison of the model with eddy covariance data for a shallow lake during the LITFASS-98 experiment in Germany. Furthermore, data selection according to the fetch and footprint conditions is presented. These models are also useful for gap filling procedures at measuring stations over lakes with limited fetch conditions in selected directions.
