Short summary
With the availability of lake surface water temperature (LSWT) satellite data for 246 globally distributed large lakes, we tune a lake model, FLake, by varying 3 basic lake properties, shown to have the most influence over the modelled LSWTs. Tuning reduces the mean absolute difference (between model and satellite LSWTs) from an average of 3.38 ºC per day (untuned model) to 0.85 ºC per day (tuned model). The effect of several LSWT drivers, such as wind speed and lake depth are also demonstrated.
