Abstract & Keywords
Abstract: Landsat satellite remote sensing datasets have been recording the human activities and natural changes since 1970s. And the long-term surface reflectance products of Landsat series data have a wide range of applications like forest monitoring, water resources management, and climate change research. By using the 6S radiative transfer model based atmospheric correction methods,high-quality surface reflectance products over China have been produced from 1980s to 2019, which are Ready To Use (RTU) for researchers and remote sensing application users. The processing steps for such kind of products included radiometric calibration, model input parameter acquisition and atmospheric correction. The products were stored as a format of Geotiff with a corresponding quality assessment files (QA), and metadata files.
