Description 
Summary

1. Raw data - 10-bit AVHRR data in 5 spectral channels. Each scene contains up to 800 scanning lines of 2048 pixels and header (approximately 18Mbytes). 2. Processed data - albedo (channels 1 and 2), brightness temperature (channels 3-5) and sea surface temperature of the Baltic sea surface south of 60 N. The data are in BSQ format. The average size of image is 800 x 1024 pixels of one byte value (0-255), i.e. 819200 bytes per spectral channel. The images are geometrically corrected and geographically registered. The spatial resolution of the images is about 1 km. At present there are about 60 scenes taken in the following months: 1981 - Jun, Aug, Sep; 1982 - Jun, Sep, Nov; 1983 - Apr, May, Aug; 1984 - Jan, Mar, Jun, Jul, Aug, Oct; 1985 - May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Oct; 1986 - Apr, May, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct; 1987 - Mar, Jul, Oct, Nov; 1988 - Apr, May, Oct; 1989 - May; 1990 - Apr; 1991 - Apr, Jul; 1992 - Aug.
