Chesapeake Bay: A Landsat 8 Surface Reflectance Mosaic

Detailed Description

Chesapeake Bay is the Nation's largest estuary and its restoration and protection is a priority. The USGS provides scientific information to help manage this vital ecosystem. As part of that role, staff at the USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center created this true color composite image. The image was created using Provisional Surface Reflectance data from five Landsat 8 scenes, acquired in October and November 2014.

More information on this image can be found in the National Land Imaging Image Collections page.
