As reported earlier this week, the Landsat 9 Thermal Infrared Sensor experienced an issue with the on-board software on March 12, 2022 (DOY 071) and thermal infrared data acquisitions were suspended temporarily.
Landsat 9 Thermal Infrared Imaging Update
Following up to our March 14, 2022 Landsat Missions Headline:
Starting late Friday March 18, 2022, thermal infrared imaging will resume; however, all Landsat 9 data acquired over the weekend will be held until the week of March 21st to allow the Landsat Calibration/Validation team to evaluate the thermal infrared data and determine if combined Landsat 9 products (LC09-containing data from the OLI and TIRS sensor) can be generated.
Additional information relating to Landsat 9 thermal infrared data acquisitions will be posted after the data evaluation has completed.
