Description

These Landsat 8 composites are made from Level L1T orthorectified scenes, using the computed top-of-atmosphere (TOA) reflectance. See Chander et al. (2009) for details on the TOA computation.

As of May 1, 2017, the USGS is no longer producing Pre-Collection Landsat, and therefore this collection is complete. Please switch to a Collection 1-based dataset. See this documentation page for more information.

These composites are created from all the scenes in each 8-day period beginning from the first day of the year and continuing to the 360th day of the year. The last composite of the year, beginning on day 361, will overlap the first composite of the following year by 3 days. All the images from each 8-day period are included in the composite, with the most recent pixel as the composite value.
