Paper Abstract

Landsat-7 will carry the enhanced thematic mapper plus (ETM+) as its payload. This instrument is a derivative of the Thematic Mapper (TM) instruments flown on the Landsat 4 and 5 spacecraft. Key changes to the instrument include a new 15 meter panchromatic band, a higher spatial resolution thermal band and two new solar calibrators to improve the radiometric calibration of the reflective bands.
