Description

This data set provides three Amazon Basin wetland image products: (1) a Central Amazon Wetlands Mask, (2) a Central Amazon Wetlands Vegetative-hydrologic Land Cover Map, and (3) an Amazon Basin Wetlands Mask. All three were derived from the Global Rain Forest Mapping Project (GRFM) dry and wet season mosaics (August-September 1995 and May-August 1996) of the Japanese Earth Resources Satellite-1 (JERS-1) Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery data (Rosenqvist et al., 2000 and Chapman et al., 2001). There are 6 GeoTIFF image files with this data set.
