Western Ross Coast Overlay

Coastal overlays are Encapsulated Postscript (EPS) files that software such as Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator can easily read. You can paste any of the MODIS or AVHRR images in our archive under the overlays using the information below. The only exception is the Western Ross Ice Shelf, which does not have a grid overlay that corresponds to the area shown in the AVHRR images. NSIDC extended this area when we started using MODIS data, and we do not plan to make a grid for the Western Ross AVHRR images at this time.
