10 Spectral and Spatial Resolution of the Landsat Multispectral Scanner (MSS), Landsat 4 and 5 Thematic Mapper (TM), Landsat 7 Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+), SPOT 1, 2, and 3 High Resolution Visible (HRV), and SPOT 4 High Resolution Visible Infrared (HRVIR) Sensor Systems
11 Seven Bands of Landsat Thematic Mapper Data of Charleston, SC, Obtained on February 3, 1994
17 Band 1 minus Band 2. The ocean and living plants reflect more deep blue-violet hues. Most plants produce surface wax (for example, the frosty coating on fresh plums) as they grow, to reflect harmful ultraviolet light away.
18 Band 9 (covering only a tiny slice of EMR) is just for clouds Band 9 (covering only a tiny slice of EMR) is just for clouds! Here it’s picking up fluffy cumulus clouds, but it’s designed especially for cirrus clouds.
