Landsat Science Products
The USGS has developed research-quality, applications-ready, Level-2 and Level-3 science products derived from Landsat Level-1 data, which can be used to monitor, assess, and project how changes in land use, land cover, and land condition affect people and nature.
The images above show the Landsat Science Products from Landsat ARD Tile 004002 acquired July 23, 2017. From left to right: Landsat Surface Reflectance, Landsat Provisional Surface Temperature, Landsat Dynamic Surface Water Exent, Landsat Burned Area, and Landsat Fractional Snow Covered Area.
Level-2 Science Products are time-series observational data of sufficient length, consistency, and continuity to record effects of climate change, and serve as input into Landsat Level-3 Science Products.
Measures the fraction of incoming solar radiation that is reflected from Earth's surface to the Landsat sensor.
Represents the temperature of the Earth's surface in Kelvin (K).
Level-3 products represent biophysical properties of the Earth's surface and are generated from U.S. Landsat Analysis Ready Data (ARD) Surface Reflectance data.
Describes the existence and condition of surface water.
Indicates the percentage of a pixel covered by snow.
Represents per pixel burn classification and burn probability.
