The ECCOE Landsat Cal/Val Team continually monitors the geometric and radiometric performance of active Landsat missions and makes calibration adjustments, as needed, to maintain Landsat data quality at the highest level.

Starting in 2021, the Cal/Val Team began publishing quarterly reports to provide the latest radiometric and geometric sensor performance for active Landsat missions. Quarterly reports also contain details about specific calibration activities of interest that were performed during the quarter, providing users with a better understanding of Landsat sensors and data.

The reports are published to the USGS Publications Warehouse and are posted on the ECCOE Landsat Calibration/Validation webpage.
