This directory contains two subdirectories:
- \avhrrcli This contains the headline data for this CD-ROM, the
monthly climatological derivations from NOAA's AVHRR
- \vector This contains vector coastlines and other vector data,
in GRASS and IDRISI formats. The IDRISI-formateed data
are in a relatively simple ASCII format, amenable for
conversion to other systems that handle vector GIS data.
AAREADME.1st files in each subdirectory provide further details of the
contents of that directory.
