Documenting a database such as LAGOS is a complex undertaking. Here, we provide a roadmap for finding the information that you need to understand and use LAGOS data products.
- An overview of the methods and procedures used to create the harmonized and integrated LAGOS-NE database can be found in this publication – Soranno et al. 2015. HOWEVER, much of the important detail on each procedure and the underlying data sources to create LAGOS-NE is found within the supplemental files of this publication (called Additional Files) that we provide below. We strongly recommend that you download the publication as well. However, for a more complete and current description of the water quality data sources, please consult the LAGOS-NE data paper (coming soon).
- The paper that provides an explanation of what DATA are in the most recent version of LAGOS-NE can be found in this data paper – Soranno et al. in review-coming soon.
