About the Kinneret Data Center

The Kinneret Data Center was established at the Kinneret Limnological Laboratory (KLL) to acquire, archive and distribute data on Lake Kinneret and to process the data into useful information. The Data Center keeps physical, chemical and, biological data from Lake Kinneret and its catchment. The sources of data are cruises of KLL research vessels , autonomous data collection systems stationed in Lake Kinneret, remote sensing systems and
data received from other agencies. Meta-data documented along with the data includes: time and space coordinates for the data collection, methods of sampling and analysis, quality control information and more.

The main source of data at the Kinneret Data Center is the long-term monitoring program of Lake Kinneret (data since 1969) funded by the Israel Water Authority. Data collected in this monitoring program are published in annual reports in Hebrew.
