Lake Victoria Basin Health Monitoring

Primary tabs

This dataset for Lake Victoria includes the following parameters:
1. Ecological water quality parameters (including Chlorophyll-a surface concentration, Suspended Particulate Matter (SPM) and Lake Surface Temperature (LST)),
2. Monitoring of the proliferation of macro-algae (water hyacinth index from optical data, water hyacinth likelihood index from radar data, and Floating Vegetation),
3. Sustainability indexes (evolution of land cover - land use (1984 - 2014), evolution of surface occupied by water hyacinth, evolution of pollution release into the lake due to rainfall streaming,
4. Other data products (lake bathymetry, topography, time series of meteorological observations).

Attached images are only JPG map visualizations. Raw data can be accessed through the external link resource.
This dataset is one of the products produced under the 2014-2016 World Bank (WBG) - European Space Agency (ESA) partnership, and is published in the partnership report: Earth Observation for Sustainable Development, June 2016.
