Minimize Product Anomalies

The Landsat-8 Data Users Handbook provides information on some of the common known OLI and TIRS instrument image artifacts.

In addition, USGS maintains a list of L8 OLI and TIRS calibration notices that describe anomalies affecting the sensors and the L8 products. This list provides information on new or temporary artifacts, how they are addressed and corrected, and provides up-to-date information and details regarding known issues and current artifacts.
