3 CEOS/WGISS-21 ALOS Successfully launched at 10:33 a.m. on January 24, 2006 (JST). Now called as Daichi, which means terra in Japanese.
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 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.
