With this calibration analysis now complete, these Landsat 8 data will be reprocessed into tiered-products (T1 or T2) starting on December 9, 2020. After the data are reprocessed to Collection 1 and Collection 2 standards, and repopulated on EarthExplorer, each scene’s Product Identifier will include the updated processing date.
