Author's Note 4/30/2020: Reverb has since been retired. Users are encouraged to use NASA Earthdata Search in place of Reverb.
On Wednesday January 22nd, the LP DAAC, in cooperation with the USGS Landsat team, enabled Landsat 8 data downloads via ECHO Reverb. Users are now able to search, browse and order Landsat 8 Operational Land Imager (OLI) and Thermal Infrared Sensor (TIRS) data, located in the L8 OLI/TIRS and L8 OLI/TIRS Pre-WRS-2 data sets.
The OLI and TIRS instruments are onboard the Landsat 8 satellite, which was launched February 11, 2013. The satellite collects images of the Earth with a 16-day repeat cycle, referenced to the Worldwide Reference System-2 (WRS-2), and has an 8-day offset to Landsat 7.
The Landsat 8 OLI/TIRS Pre-WRS-2 data set contains nearly 10,000 scenes acquired by the OLI and/or TIRS sensors after launch through April 10, 2013, when the satellite achieved operational orbit (WRS-2).
The data may be accessed via Reverb at the following link: http://reverb.echo.nasa.gov
