Landsat Surface Reflectance - L8 OLI/TIRS
Entry ID: LANDSAT_SURFACE_REFLECTANCE_L8_OLI_TIRS


Summary
Abstract: Landsat satellite data have been produced, archived, and distributed by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) since 1972. Users rely on these data for historical study of land surface change but shoulder the burden of post-production processing to create applications-ready data sets.

Purpose: The USGS is capitalizing on this valuable time series to create high level data products that can be used to document changes to Earth's terrestrial environment. These data provide an authoritative basis for regional to continental scale identification of historical change, monitoring current conditions, and helping to predict future scenarios so that the impact of such changes can be understood so that strategies for adaptation and mitigation can be developed for implementation.
