The LDCM Science Team will recommend strategies for the effective use of archived data from Landsat sensors and investigate the requirements for future sensors to meet the needs of Landsat users, including the needs of policy makers at all levels of government. The team will cooperate with other Earth observing missions, both nationally and internationally.

The LDCM Science Team combines USGS leadership, USGS and NASA scientists, and a group of external scientists and satellite data applications specialists. The first meeting of the team will be held in November, 2006. The members will serve in their advisory capacity through the development and launch of the [next Landsat -type] satellite and through the first year of data collection.
