0Status of Next Generation Japanese Geostationary Meteorological Satellites Himawari-8/9 and their ProductsKotaro BESSHO, Meteorological Satellite CenterTenth Annual Symposium on New Generation Operational Environmental Satellite Systems, Atlanta, Georgia, 4 February 2014
1Contents• What will Himawari-8/9 bring to us? • Development of Products • Preparation of launch and operation of Himawari-8 • Data Dissemination
2What will Himawari-8/9 bring to us? Upgrade of number of channels Upgrade of spatial and temporal resolutionsB/W TVHD TVNext, I’ll talk about Product development.JMA/MSC is developing these products for Himawari-8.Cloud productAMVVolcanic ash productAnd Aerosol Product.現在、JMAは次のプロダクトの開発を行っています。2
