ARC-Lake v2.0 - 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 v2.0 data products cover the period from 1st August 1991 to 31st December 2011.
A number of different data products are available and are grouped together into eight 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. Details of the methods used and a list of all lakes and their locations are given in the ARC-Lake Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ARC-Lake-ATBD-v1.3.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/
