Summary
Abstract: The AMRC also collected a set of NOAA Polar Orbiting AVHRR Global Area Coverage (GAC) images from 7 December 1994 through August 1995, with scattered coverage to 26 March 1996. This lower resolution data set (three kilometers by five kilometers) is available from AMRC, though only the infrared window channel was archived. This is a sample GAC image. (69 Kb)
