Dr. Tom Loveland, Chief Scientist at the USGS Earth Resource Observation and Science Center, spoke with reporter Cara Hetland from South Dakota Public Broadcasting about his role as co-chair of the Landsat Science Team and the team itself.
The new Landsat Science team was announced by USGS in mid-December. The team of 20 scientists and engineers will serve a five year term. They will provide input on Landsat challenges and next steps for the program.
One of the suggestions of a previous Landsat Science Team led to the hugely successful Landsat Global Archive Consolidation project which resulted in 4 million unique Landsat scenes collected by foreign ground stations (over the past four decades) being added to the USGS Landsat archive and made freely available for download.
