Short summary
A new automated method for microwave satellite assessment of lake ice conditions at 5 km resolution was developed for lakes in the Northern Hemisphere. The resulting ice record shows strong agreement with ground observations and alternative ice records. Higher latitude lakes reveal more widespread and larger trends toward shorter ice cover duration than lower latitude lakes. The new approach allows for rapid monitoring of lake ice cover changes, with accuracy suitable for global change studies.
