Comparison Plots of Collection 1 and Collection 2 L8 TIRS Striping Factors

Detailed Description

The plots in this image display a comparison between Collection 1 and Collection 2 striping factors derived from Band 10 and Band 11 data for path 186 row 36 over the instrument’s lifetime.

The striping factor is a quantitative metric for the amount of striping present in an image that is obtained through calculation of spatial-domain statistics. Larger values for this metric tend to positively correlate with more visually apparent striping (reference to cal/val radiometric ADD).

Plots clearly suggest significant improvement in striping characteristics of thermal bands in Collection 2.
