Published: 4 January 2021| Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/kd64xjfpc2.1


Landsat 8 OLI Satellite Images for Lake Hussain Sagar, India are provided in the folder 'Satellite Images- Clipped- Hussain Sagar Lake Hyderabad India'. Data contains band 1 (B1), band 2 (B2), band 3 (B3), band 4 (B4), and band 5 (B5) for March and April in 2015 - 2019, and January, March, April, and May in 2020. All cloud-free images are used. Surface Reflectance (SR) values extracted for the above-mentioned bands are available in the folder 'Extracted Surface Reflectance Values'. This data is used for water quality analysis during the COVID-19 lockdown. For more details refer to Wagh et. al, 2021 (https://doi.org/10.3390/w13010073).


Steps to reproduce

The raw satellite images obtained from the USGS are clipped to the shape of Lake Hussain Sagar, which are then processed to convert the Digital Numbers of the images to the surface reflectance values. Refer to Wagh et. al, 2021 (https://doi.org/10.3390/w13010073) for a detailed procedure.
