USGS Landsat 8 Surface Reflectance Tier 2 (LANDSAT/LC08/C01/T2_SR)

This dataset is the atmospherically corrected
surface reflectance from the Landsat 8 OLI/TIRS sensors.
These images contain 5 visible and near-infrared (VNIR) bands and
2 short-wave infrared (SWIR) bands processed to orthorectified surface
reflectance, and two thermal infrared (TIR) bands processed to orthorectified
brightness temperature

These data have been atmospherically corrected using
LaSRC
and includes a cloud, shadow, water and snow mask produced using
CFMASK,
as well as a per-pixel saturation mask.

Strips of collected data are packaged into overlapping “scenes” covering approximately
170km x 183km using a standardized reference grid.
