The 15th Annual NASA LCLUC Science Team Meeting, March 28 – 30, 2011.

The Land-Cover/Land-Use Change (LCLUC) Program is an interdisciplinary science program in the Earth Science Research Program of the Science Mission Directorate (SMD). The 15th Annual LCLUC Science Team Meeting was held in the Marriott Inn and Conference Center at the University of Maryland University College. The main topics covered during the meeting were: 1) Reviews on State of the LCLUC Science, 2) Panel on the Future Directions for Land Cover and Land Use Research, 3) New Investigator Program and NASA Earth Science Students Fellowships Program: LCLUC Research Results, 4) LCLUC 2nd Year Preliminary Science Results, 5) LCLUC: International Programs, 6) Land Cover Mapping and Change Monitoring: Science Review, 7) LCLUC Tools and Data Products, 8) Final Reports of LCLUC Research Projects, and 9) Meeting Summary and Program Directions. USGS submitted a proposal; in response to the NASA Research Announcement (NRA) NNH07ZDA001N, Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences – 2007 (ROSES-2007) and were successful in winning the proposal titled: Cross-calibration of current Landsat sensors with foreign Landsat-class sensors for long-term monitoring of land surface processes (07-LCLUC07-4). The purpose of the attendance is to present the status and show the progress of the activities to the NASA Headquartes. As part of this proposal, a cross-calibration of Landsat Thematic Mapper Data (TM)/Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) and IRS-P6 Advanced Wide Field Sensor (AWiFS) sensors was completed, the on-orbit long-term stability was monitored and the differences between the two AWiFS cameras were investigated and assessed for geometric fidelity of the AWiFS sensor. The follow-on sensors on-board ResourceSat-2 satellite is scheduled for launch in April 20, 2011.
