  2. Landsat 7 Mission Picture

  3. Satellite name and description • Weight, about 953 kg (2100 lbs) • Height, 3m (10 ft) • Landsat help scientist to find out what island going on and be prepare for weather. scientist ensure the landsat island charge of the weather and see if occur then it meant warn about it

  4. What does this satellite’s orbit look like? • near-polar – continuation of roationing • Circled the earth every 103.34 minutes • Completed 14 orbits a day • Repeat cycle: 18 days • Equatorial crossing time: 9:30 a.m. +/- 15 minutes

  5. Owner who built it • Manufacturer: General Electric's Space Division in Valley Forge PA

  6. Mission Goals • observing changes in the Earth's land surface and surrounding environment. • It images provide a unique resource for people who work in agriculture, geology, forestry, regional planning, education, mapping, and global change research. • Scientist want ensure the earth will charge or not of climate, collect the info and image to transmit of the scan

  7. Mission 2 • the Earth's land mass • coastal boundaries • coral reefs

  8. Mission 3 • Enhanced thematic mapper (ETM) landsat that scan store up to seven images How the satellite data will be used? • compare land cover change over period of time

  9. The science • Science background – something you learned? • I learned landsat island image and get picture of the earth because It helps to scientist see what occur the earth would be change or not of the climate. If see the change of the climate then it meant warn, it will occur any time and be prepare.

  10. Science 2 What spheres does this satellite study? North and south hemisphere

  11. Science 3 Additional interesting information? • Landsat 7 designed continuation five years • Capacity to collect transmit it scans across the entire earth's surface • up to 532 images per day
