This resource contains dataset, figures, and Python codes used in the paper titled “Managing Lake Urmia, Iran for diverse restoration objectives: moving beyond a uniform target lake level ”, accepted for publication in Journal of Hydrology: Regional Studies.

Data and scripts are for lake salinity, Artemia and flamingo populations, lake levels where islands connect to each other and the mainland, lakebed dust area, valuable ion concentrations, and recreational access measured as the distance from resort beaches to water deep enough to boat. Data derive from 40 years of experimental, field, satellite, and model data for the lake. We relate each metric to lake level.
Jian Wang from Utah State University ran all scripts and reproduced figures.

The resource is organized as:
- Data - Lake Urmia data used in the study from 1995 to 2015
- Figures - Figures that appear in the manuscript.
- Graphical Abstract - Graphical abstract of the manuscript
- Python codes - Codes used to query data and generate figures
