10:30 John Schott (Rochester Institute of Technology) - Land-Water Sat; New Opportunity

11:00 Prasad Thenkabail (USGS) - Hyperspectral Remote Sensing of Vegetation: Knowledge gain and Knowledge gap based on last 40 years of research

11:30 Dennis Helder (South Dakota State University) - Landsat Calibration:  Interpolation, Extrapolation, and Reflection

12:00 Lunch

1:00 Eric Vermote (University of Maryland) - A Surface Reflectance product for Landsat/LDCM: summary of activities, future work and implications for similar class sensors e.g Sentinel 2

1:30 David Roy (South Dakota State University) - Web Enabled Landsat Data (WELD): Project status and some lessons learned from bulk Landsat science data processing

2:00 Feng Gao (USDA ARS) - Developing Consistent Time Series Landsat Data Products
