March 8, 2013 - Landsat 7 Lifetime Calibration Update

The Calibration team has recently documented that the gains of the reflective bands have degraded over the past 14 years.

On April 1, 2013, an update to the Landsat 7 processing will correct images for this degradation. All of the Landsat 7 data on the online server will be purged. Newly acquired data will be automatically processed, and users will need to request historical data for processing.
