DescriptionARC-Lake v1.1 - Global contains data products with global coverage, i.e. data for all (available) lakes are included in each product. These data products contain observations of Lake Surface Water Temperature (LSWT) and Lake Ice Cover (LIC) from the series of (Advanced) Along-Track Scanning Radiometers ((A)ATSRs). ARC-Lake v1.1 data products cover the period from 1st June 1995 to 31st December 2009. A number of different data products are available and are grouped together into six zip archives, by product type. A summary of the types of data product available is given on http://datashare.is.ed.ac.uk/handle/10283/88 and full details of the file naming convention and file contents are given in the ARC-Lake Data Product Description document (ARCLake_DPD_v1_1_2.pdf). Note that not all types of data product available on a per-lake basis are available as a global product. A full listing of each zip archive is provided in the ARC-Lake Data Product File List (ARCLake_DPFL_v1_1_2.pdf). Details of the methods used and a list of all lakes and their locations are given in the ARC-Lake Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ARCLake_ATBD_v_1_1.pdf).
