December 15, 2017 - New Landsat Science Team Announced

The USGS, in cooperation with NASA, has selected an expert team of national and international land remote sensing leaders to provide technical and scientific input to USGS and NASA on issues critical to the success of the Landsat program. 

The five-year goal of this Landsat Science Team is to ensure that Landsat 9 data, and relevant data from future Landsat missions are completely integrated with past Landsat data for the purpose of meeting the needs of current users and enabling new applications. In addition, it is increasingly important that data from international sources (e.g., the European Space Agency’s Sentinel-2 missions), as well as commercial sources, are synergistically exploited with the Landsat record. 

The team members and their areas of expertise are listed on the Landsat website.
