Summary
Abstract: The AMRC has been collecting Local Area Coverage (LAC) images from 17 October 1998 to present of the Ronne Ice Shelf Iceberg (scattered coverage when there is partially or totally clear fields of view). This data is much like the HRPT data, in that it is 1 km resolution with all five channels of the AVHRR instrument. Beginning 30 March 1999, AMRC began archiving all available LAC images over the Antarctic continent.
