Landsat 9 after Hurricane Ian (over Brunswick, GA)
Landsat 9 captured this image of the aftermath of Hurricane Ian on the Georgia coast on the morning of October 6, 2022. It shows the area of Brunswick, Georgia (top left), and sediment spreading out from the shoreline.

However, Landsat Collection 2 data and science products from 1972 to present remain available for download from the USGS EarthExplorer, GloVis, LandsatLook, and the commercial cloud. Additional Landsat Collection 2 science products, such as Spectral Indices, are also available to request from the EROS Science Processing Architecture (ESPA) On Demand Interface at  

Landsat Collection 2 data contains improved geometric accuracy, digital elevation modeling, better radiometric calibration, and many more advancements over Collection 1. For a complete list of Collection 2 processing improvements, please review the information on the Landsat Collection 2 webpage.  

Due to processing and algorithm advancements, users are discouraged from using Collection 1 and Collection 2 interchangeably in the same workflow. Please contact EROS User Services with any questions about this announcement or about any Landsat data products at
