Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica (LIMA) 16-Bit Pan-sharpened Mosaic (USGS/LIMA/MOSAIC)

The Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica (LIMA) is a seamless
and virtually cloudless mosaic created from processed
Landsat 7 ETM+ scenes.

This LIMA dataset is the 16-bit Intermediate LIMA.
The mosaic consists of pan-sharpened normalized surface reflectance
scenes (Landsat ETM+ bands 1, 2, 3, and 4). The mosaic was
constructed by ordering cloud free images on top and trimming
image boundaries when tile discontinuities occurred.
