Satellite data from the polar-orbiting Landsat-8 and Sentinel-2 sensors offer multi-spectral global coverage. Together, they advance the virtual constellation paradigm for mid-resolution land imaging. However, the temporal revisit capability of their combined data is not yet well understood as these satellites have different orbits and repeat cycles. This paper described a global analysis of Landsat-8, Sentinel-2A and Sentinel-2B for 2016. A global equal area projection grid was used to quantify the temporal revisit intervals for each sensor individually and combined together. Histograms, maps and global summary statistics of the temporal revisit intervals (minimum, mean, medium, and maximum) and also the number of observations were reported. The results quantify the increased opportunities for more frequent surface observations when combining sensors. View the paper
