5 5 CEOS/WGISS-21 ALOS data (1) Mt. Fuji observed by the PRISM on Feb. 14, 2006 (JST)

6 6 CEOS/WGISS-21 ALOS data (2) Tanegashima Island observed by the AVNIR-2 on February 17, 2006 (JST)

7 7 CEOS/WGISS-21 ALOS data (3) The image data on Lake Biwa in Shiga Prefecture was observed by the PALSAR on Mar. 21, 2006 (JST).

8 8 CEOS/WGISS-21 ALOS data (4) Merapi at 11:40 a.m. on April 29, 2006 (JST) PALSAR data AVNIR-2 data

9 9 CEOS/WGISS-21 Greenhouse Gases Observing Satellite Number and distribution of ground-based CO2 monitoring stations is not enough. Satellite data from global and frequent observation is needed. ~91 92~ Observing Station Provided by NIES GOSAT © JAXA Objectives To observe the distribution of the concentration of CO2 and to confirm both the amounts and the area of CO2 sources and sinks. To observe the distribution of the concentration of other greenhouse gases e.g. CH4 in order to understand global warming more precisely.

10 10 CEOS/WGISS-21 Global Precipitation Mission GPM is a follow-on and expanded mission of the current on-going TRMM Improve the accuracy of both long-term and short- term weather forecasts Improve water resource management in river control and irrigation systems for agriculture Core Satellite Dual-frequency precipitation radar (DPR) Microwave radiometer (GMI) Precipitation with high precision Discrimination between rain and snow Constellation Satellites Microwave radiometer Global precipitation every three hours Core Satellite Constellation Satellites TRMM Era GPM Era

11 11 CEOS/WGISS-21 ADEOS-II Follow-on Mission (GCOM) JAXA will propose a series of satellites for establishing GEOSS mainly focused on observations of global warming, water cycle and disaster. The series of satellites, GCOM (Global Climate Observation Mission), consist of 2 satellite series: GCOM-W: Sea surface observation mission with AMSR F/O and scatterometer. GCOM-C: Atmospheric and terrestrial observation mission with GLI F/O.
