Abstract

This dataset contains ice in, ice out and ice duration data for Minnesota lakes that have been collated by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources State Climatology Office. Lake ice has been recorded by lake associations, community members and scientists throughout Minnesota. The definition of lake ice in and out can vary from lake to lake but observers generally use consistent criteria for determining the day ice formation occurs or ice melts for a lake. For more information see the Minnesota DNR lake ice in (https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/ice_in/index.html) and ice out (https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/ice_out/index.html) websites.
