Lakes

The overarching objective of the Lakes project is to produce and validate a consistent data set of the variables grouped under the Lakes ECV.

About project

The Lakes_cci project develops satellite-derived products covering Lake Water Level, Lake Water Extent, Lake Surface Water temperature, Lake Ice Cover and Lake Water-Leaving Reflectance.

This involves establishing wide uptake by a varied and fragmented landscape of potential users. This requires significant alignment of current practices for producing the individual Lake variables, cross-variable validation, and demonstration in the form of use cases. Successfully tackling the challenge of producing a single data set for the Lakes ECV creates an opportunity to move the science community towards wider uptake of Earth Observation data in limnological studies.
