Paper Abstract

For monitoring of global environmental change, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has made a new plan of Global Change Observation Mission (GCOM). SGLI (Second Generation GLI) onboard GCOM-C (Climate) satellite, which is one of this mission, provides an optical sensor from Near-UV to TIR. Characteristic specifications of SGLI are as follows; 1) 250m resolutions over land and area along the shore, 2) Three directional polarization observation (red and NIR), and 3) 500m resolutions temperature over land and area along shore. These characteristics are useful in many fields of social benefits. In addition, 51 products will be made by mainly 35 principal investigators. We introduce the overview of GCOM-C1/SGLI science.
