Global Surface Water

climate change derived data inland water open data surface water water bodies

Description

The Global Surface Water dataset was developed by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre within the framework of the Copernicus Programme. It is derived from Landsat imagery and and shows different aspects of the spatio-temporal distribution of surface water between 1984 and 2019 at the global scale.

Band Information

NameDescription
OccurrenceIntra- and inter-annual frequency of surface water presence in the time range between 1984 and 2019.
Occurrence Change IntensityChanges in water occurrence between two epochs, the first ranging from 1984 to 1999 and the second covering 2000 to 2019.
SeasonalityIntra-annual distribution of surface water in 2019.
RecurrenceInter-annual variability of surface water presence in a defined water period within the entire time range from 1984 to 2019.
TransitionsVisualises changes in the three surface water classes (1) not water, (2) seasonal water, and (3) permanent water between the first and last year in the 36-year time period.
ExtentMaximum extent of surface water bodies in the 36-year time range.
