Data generated in the Lakes_cci project contains global lake products during the period 1992-2020.
Target lakes for version 2.0.1:
The files in netCDF format can be downloaded at Centre for Environmental Data Analysis: lakes_cci version 2.0.1
The list of lakes, including their location and thematic ECV data availability for version 2.0.1, can be downloaded in csv format (lakescci_v2.0.1_data-availability.csv) or shape format (lakes_cci_v2.0.1_data_availability_shp.zip)
Tips for users:
- Lake Water Leaving Reflectance (LWLR):
The temporal availability of LWLR data depends on the sensor. The table below shows the time span and sensor source for LWLR and derived variables.
MODIS-Aqua coverage is for a reduced number of lakes after validation of inter-sensor consistency.
- Lake Water Level (LWL):
As LWL is altimetry-based, water level information for some lakes is not available as they are not covered by past and current altimetry missions.
