What about landsat LDCM for water resources?

 

A new Landsat satellite was launched one Monday (Feb. 11, 2013) from the Vanderberg Air Force Base in California. The LDCM or Landsat Data Continuity Mission joined the 15-year-old Landsat 7 and the 30-year-old Landsat 5. Since satellites are attracted by earth gravity, the launch of new satellites is important to preserve the continuity of the image registration.
