Landsat Science Team: 2017 Winter meeting summary

April 12, 2017

The winter meeting of the NASA-U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Landsat Science Team (LST) was held January 10-12, 2017, at Boston University. LST co-chairs Tom Loveland [USGS’s Earth Resources Observation and Science Center (EROS)—Senior Scientist], Jim Irons [NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC)—Deputy Director, Earth Sciences Division], and Curtis Woodcock [Boston University—Professor and LST Co-Leader] welcomed the participants to the three-day meeting. The group immediately and enthusiastically recognized Woodcock’s receipt of the 2016 Pecora Award. Loveland summarized the primary meeting objectives to identify priorities for future Landsat measurements and to begin identifying next-generation Landsat products. He also discussed USGS’s plans to issue a request for proposals for membership on the 2018-2023 LST (i.e., the next five-year term). Irons stressed Landsat’s bipartisan support but cautioned against complacency when looking toward future capabilities. Meeting presentations are available at
