Landsat 4 Overview
Landsat 4 was launched on July 16, 1982, with joint control of the program by NOAA, NASA, and the U.S. Geological Survey. Each federal agency took on a different role.
On March 6, 1984, the Thematic Mapper (TM) on Landsat 5 captured this image of Corpus Christi. Texas. Located in South Texas on the Gulf of Mexico, the city and its bay are protected by barrier islands.
The image is shown as a false color composite using the near infrared, red, and green bands (bands 4,3,2). In this image vegetation appears as red and barren ground appears as brown.
