ARC-Lake v2.0 - Per-Lake contains data products on a lake-by-lake basis. 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 for each lake and are grouped together into a zip archive for each lake. 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). Individual lake archives are grouped into larger zip archives by continent (with the exception of the Caspian Sea). 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
