Observed lake surface water temperature anomalies in 2017 are placed in the context of the recent warming observed in global surface air temperature by collating long-term in situ lake surface temperature observations from some of the world?s best-studied lakes and a satellite-derived global lake surface water temperature dataset. The period 1996?2015, 20 years for which satellite-derived lake temperatures are available, is used as the base period for all lake temperature anomaly calculations.
