What is the spectral resolution of Landsat 5?

What is the spectral resolution of Landsat 5?

About Landsat 5 (TM) The Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) sensor was carried on Landsat 4 and Landsat 5, and created images consisting of six spectral bands with a spatial resolution of 30 meters for Bands 1-5 and 7, and one thermal band (Band 6).

What is the Landsat resolution?

The Landsat 8 satellite payload consists of two science instruments—the Operational Land Imager (OLI) and the Thermal Infrared Sensor (TIRS). These two sensors provide seasonal coverage of the global landmass at a spatial resolution of 30 meters (visible, NIR, SWIR); 100 meters (thermal); and 15 meters (panchromatic).

What is spectral resolution used for?

Spectral resolution describes the ability of a sensor to define fine wavelength intervals. The finer the spectral resolution, the narrower the wavelength range for a particular channel or band. Black and white film records wavelengths extending over much, or all of the visible portion of the electromagnetic spectrum.

What are the spectral bands on Landsat 5?

Four spectral bands (identical to Landsat 1 and 2): Band 4 Visible green (0.5 to 0.6 µm) — powered off due to high current in August 1995; Band 5 Visible red (0.6 to 0.7 µm) Band 6 Near-Infrared (0.7 to 0.8 µm) Band 7 Near-Infrared (0.8 to 1.1 µm) Six detectors for each spectral band provided six scan lines on each active scan

When did the Landsat 4-5 satellite begin decommissioning?

The satellite began decommissioning activities in January 2013. Landsat 4-5 TM image data files consist of seven spectral bands (See band designations ). The resolution is 30 meters for bands 1 to 7.

How big is a Landsat 4-5 TM scene?

The approximate scene size is 170 km north-south by 183 km east-west (106 mi by 114 mi). Most Landsat 4-5 TM scenes are processed through the Level 1 Product Generation System (LPGS), processed to full Precision Terrain correction with the following parameters applied for Product Type and L1T Terrain Correction* .

Where can I download data from Landsat 5?

Data products created from Landsat 5 Multispectral Scanner (MSS) and Landsat 5 Thematic Mapper (TM) scenes are available to download from EarthExplorer, GloVis, and the LandLook Viewer . Landsat 5 carried the Multispectral Scanner (MSS) and the Thematic Mapper (TM) sensors.
