January 28, 2019 - Landsat 7 and Landsat 8 Data Processing Status

During the government shutdown Landsat 7 and Landsat 8 continually acquired data that were downlinked and archived at USGS EROS. The data were processed to the initial Real-Time (RT) collection tier, however calibration updates to process the scenes into Tier 1 or Tier 2 (Landsat 7 bumper mode and definitive ephemeris; Landsat 8 thermal line of sight model) were not able to be performed.

Reprocessing of Landsat 8 data to Tier 1 or Tier 2 will begin Tuesday January 29; Landsat 7 reprocessing is planned to begin later this week.

We appreciate your patience during this time. Please contact User Services if you have any questions regarding this announcement.
