In the renewed system of Aratos Earth Observation Data Platform the up-to-date Lake Ice Extent (LIE) layer is added. Lake Ice Extent classifies ice for freshwater bodies, per cloud-free pixel, into:
Lake ice is a good climate indicator and interesting parameter in hydrological modelling, weather prediction and, after integration over time, estimating dates for ice phenology events (ice break-up, ice-off).
We continue to innovate with space technologies since 2005.
