Description

These 3-year composites were created from all Landsat 7 images in the specified composite period, excluding images marked with a negative sun elevation in their metadata. The composites were created using the ee.Algorithms.Landsat.simpleComposite() method with its default settings. Reflectance ([0,1]) in bands B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, and B7 is scaled to 8 bits ([0,255]) and temperature in band B6_VCID_2 is converted to units of Kelvin-100.
