Process Step Raster layers of surface water changes were obtained from the European Commission's [Global Surface Water Explorer]( Permanent, seasonal, new permanent, and new seasonal water surfaces were identified from raster layer and then converted to reservoir polygons when there is sufficient indication that a dam exists at the location.
Lineage European Commission's [Global Surface Water Explorer]( full paper on dataset published in Nature: doi:10.1038/nature20584
