Radiometric analysis of the longwave infrared channel of the Thematic Mapper on LANDSAT 4 and 5. By Joseph D. Biegel, John R. Schott and William J. Volchok. Abstract. The first objective was to evaluate the postlaunch radiometric calibration of the LANDSAT Thematic Mapper (TM) band 6 data. The second objective was to determine to what extent. The Landsat program, started in , is one of the mainstays of NASA's earth-observation program. Landsat Thematic Mapper is a sensor flying on Landsat 4 and 5 satellites. Landsat 4 was launched in and ended operation in Landsat 5 was launched in and continued to acquire imagery, in 7 spectral bands until November Since limited infrared ( ) channel of the Thematic Mapper (TM) on board Landsats 4 and 5. Since limited data are available from the Landsat 4 sensor, the major portion of the analysis is performed on Landsat 5 data. the Landsat sensor, the major portion analysis is performed on Landsat 5 .

In the case of GOSAT and Suomi-NPP, since they fly at different altitudes in the polar orbits ( km for Suomi-NPP and km for GOSAT), there is an orbital period difference between the two satellites that.
