The Terra Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Water Reservoir Monthly Level 3 (L3) Global (MOD28C3) Version 6.1 product provides current data for 151 man-made reservoirs and 13 regulated natural lakes for a total of 164 reservoirs. The MOD28C3 Version 6.1 data product is a composite of the 8-day area classifications from MOD28C2, which is converted to provide monthly elevation and water storage. Lake Temperature and Evaporation Model (LTEM) (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0034425720304776?via%3Dihub) via MODIS Land Surface Temperature (LST) (MOD21) and meteorological data from Global Land Data Assimilation System (GLDAS) (https://earth.gsfc.nasa.gov/hydro/data/gldas-global-land-data-assimilation-system-data) are used to produce monthly evaporation rates and volume losses. The MOD28C3 data product contains a single layer with information about the reservoir identifier, dam location (longitude and latitude), monthly reservoir area, elevation, storage capacity, evaporation rate, and evaporation volume.
