Title: Monthly water balance estimates for the Laurentian Great Lakes from 1950 to 2019 (v1.1) Open Access Deposited

Methodology
  • The new estimates of the water balance of the Laurentian Great Lakes were generated using the Large Lakes Statistical Water Balance Model (L2SWBM). The L2SWBM used multiple independent data sets to obtain the prior distributions and likelihood functions, which were then assimilated by a Bayesian framework to infer a feasible range of each water balance component. Detail description of the L2SWBM is available in a paper submitted to the Scientific Data journal.
Description
  • This data set contains a new monthly estimate of the water balance of the Laurentian Great Lakes, the largest freshwater system on Earth, from 1950 to 2019. The source codes and inputs to derive the new estimates are also included in this dataset.
