Considering lack of observations and meteorological data, the article analyses the reconstruction of bog lake water level fluctuations. The main issue of using advanced methods for determining water level fluctuations and balance can be lack of verified data. The proposed method uses only a variable length period of precipitation amount data series. Bog lake Rėkyva can be distinguished from other bog lakes due to its large area, and therefore has been chosen for this case study. The main conclusion is that the proposed method is suitable for determining trends towards water level fluctuation over long time periods.
