Short summary
We were able to demonstrate that data from polar orbiting satellites can be used not only to derive lake water temperature for large lakes (> 500km2) but also for the many lakes like in central Europe which are smaller than 100km2. The linear warming trend derived for one of the lakes shows good agreement between in situ and satellite observations. Thus, this data set will offer the possibility to investigate the impact of climate change on lake water temperatures in central Europe.
