Windermere lake temperature data 1944-2002

This dataset consists of inshore surface water temperature (degrees C) data on Windermere. Data collection began in 1933, but it presented here from 1944 onwards. The data were initially collected by the Freshwater Biological Association (FBA), then by the Centre for Ecology & Hydrolog (CEH) and its predecessor [the Institute of Freshwater Ecology (IFE)] from 1989 to 2003, and subsequently again by FBA.
