LANDSAT-7 TM over Sendai, the day after

Question asked by timbabwe on Mar 14, 2011

This LANDSAT-7 TM pass went over Japan Saturday.  It is available through
the Earth Explorer interface from the EROS Data Center.  LANDSAT-7 has
the well-known "venetian-blind" artifact and this image has lots of cumulus
cloud, but the ETM+ sensor also has the pan-chromatic 15-meter band 8,
which allows extra high resolution colorized images. 

These two zooms select bands {721}, which pick up the fires and smoke
plumes, as well as the saturated land and standing water.  I'm sure others
in the Remote Sensing community can improve on these images.
