Landsat Collection 1 Level-2 Albers Scene Bundles consist of the following Collection 1 Level-2 data products processed in the Albers Equal Area (AEA) map projection and World Geodetic System 1984 (WGS84) datum: Top of Atmosphere (TOA) Reflectance, Surface Reflectance (SR), Top of Atmosphere Brightness Temperature (BT), Surface Temperature (ST), Dynamic Surface Water Extent (DSWE), and Quality Assessment (QA).

The creation of Level-2 Albers Scene Bundles begins with Landsat Collection 1 Level-1 Tier 1 data (For Landsat 8, Tier 2 data are also used).  Collection 1 Level-1 data are processed into the AEA map projection, after which science algorithms (see documentation links below) are applied to create the Level-2 data product.

Collection 1 Level-2 Albers Scene Bundles are available for the conterminous United States (CONUS), Alaska, and Hawaii.
