Globolakes Natural Environment Research Council Globolakes Home Page

GloboLakes is a five year research programme investigating the state of lakes and their response to climatic and other environmental drivers of change at a global scale through the realisation of a near-real time satellite based observatory with archive data processing to produce a 20-year time series of observed ecological parameters and lake temperature supported by linked auxiliary data on catchment land-use and meteorological forcing.


"The 1000 Lakes"

GloboLakes Site Selection:

We have now selected 991 lakes/reservoirs from around the world based upon a number of ctriteria. Find the full list here. For more information on the lakes selection process contact our consortium at the University of Dundee

GloboLakes will analyse 20 years of data from more than 1000 large lakes across the globe to determine ‘what controls the differential sensitivity of lakes to environmental perturbation’.
