I downloaded several Landsat images from some years between 1985 and 2014, all of them with good quality. Nevertheless the period from 2003 to 2013 is not worth it. I checked all images. Most of the images have black strips or color distortions.
Checking on the EarthExplorer page I get the same result. Is there something wrong with that period of detection, do I just have bad luck with my area, or am I doing something wrong?
