ARC-Lake v1.1 - Ancillary contains ancillary data products. This consists of the full resolution land/water mask used to determined where observations of Lake Surface Water Temperature (LSWT) and Lake Ice Cover (LIC) are derived and a reduced resolution version of this mask, corresponding to the resolution of the spatially resolved data products.
The methodology used to define this land/water mask is described in the ARC-Lake Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ARCLake_ATBD_v_1_1.pdf) and a description of the format of these data files is provided in the ARC-Lake Data Product Description document (ARCLake_DPD_v1_1_2.pdf).
Additional information about the ARC-Lake project and some basic data analysis tools can be found on the project website: http://www.geos.ed.ac.uk/arclake/
