Zambezi River Basin Water Quality and Temperature

Primary tabs

Water quality and temperature for Lake Malawi, Lake Malombe and Lake Chilwa, derived from MERIS FR images for 2010-2011 using the proprietary WISP algorithm.
These parameters are:
- Chlorophyll-a (Chl-a)
- Total Suspended Matter (TSM)
- Colored Dissolved Organic Matter (CDOM)
- Kd averaged over the spectrum (KDP)
The results were resampled to a spatial resolution of 300m.
Selected Water Surface Temperature (SST) data is also included here as an additional product.

This dataset is one of the products produced under the 2008-2012 World Bank (WBG) - European Space Agency (ESA) partnership, and is published in the partnership report: Earth Observation for Sustainable Development, June 2013
