Lake Bio-optical Measurements and Matchup Data for Remote Sensing

LIMNADES is an initiative to establish a centralised database of ground bio-optical measurements of worldwide lakes through voluntary cooperation across the international scientific community.

LIMNADES will provide a repository for:

  1. inherent and apparent optical property datasets and associated water constituent measurements; and
  2. in situ water constituent measurements for satellite validation.

Our long-term vision is to maintain this database beyond the end of the GloboLakes project (ends 2017). The database will be held in trust by GloboLakes where further post-processing and quality control will be performed. Further information on this initiative will be provided to potential contributors as it develops.
