Thermal InfraRed Sensor (TIRS)-2 Instrument Development

The Thermal InfraRed Sensor (TIRS)-2 instrument is a two-band thermal imaging sensor flying on Landsat 9. Like its predecessor TIRS on Landsat 8, TIRS-2 produces radiometrically calibrated, geo-located thermal image data used operationally to monitor water consumption on a field-by-field basis in the U.S. West and internationally, among multiple other uses. This talk will provide an overview of the instrument and how it operates.
