Question:

How does the Scan Line Corrector (SLC) status affect the tier classifications of Landsat 7 scenes?

Answer:

The Landsat 7 SLC-off status does not change how the data are placed into the Landsat Collection Tier structure, as tier classifications are determined by the radiometric and geometric accuracy of each scene as described in this FAQ.

The Landsat Collections Web page contains the details about all aspects of the Collection 1 effort.
