Short summary
The Diversity II inland water database consists of remotely sensed water quality information for more than 300 lakes in the whole world. It was derived from optical and thermal imagery acquired by the ESA ENVISAT satellite between 2002 and 2012. The database consists of spatially resolved monthly, yearly and 9-year averages for 10 geophysical parameters. Its practical usage is demonstrated by means of several case studies on lake-specific processes and regime shifts.
