Summary
Abstract: The AME data set is comprised of maps for the country of Brazil,
gridded at 8-km spatial resolution.

Each file contains one binary map layer comprised of 552 rows x 634 cols with
no header lines and consists of:
- soil texture class
- soil plant available water (paw)
- net primary production (NPP)
- net ecosystem production (NEP)- aboveground leaf biomass
- aboveground wood biomass
