What are acquisition date ranges?

Scenes from certain collections have an acquisition date range instead of a specific date. This means that the data for the collection was acquired between the start and end years of the date range. The data changes over time. When newer data is processed, scenes from previous years are replaced with new ones. For a given AOI, you always get the latest processed data available.
