Effects of seasonal and interannual variability in water isotopes (δ2H, δ18O) on estimates of water balance in a chain of seven prairie lakes

•δ2H and δ18O were measured bi-weekly during ice-free season for 14 years in 7 lakes.

•Variation was greater among seasons than years in lakes with residence time < 1 year.

•Source waters varied spatially with landscape position and annual precipitation.

•Seasonal samples are needed to characterize shallow or hydrologically-unknown lakes.
