[ACG09-23] Preparation status of GCOM-C science mission
Keywords:GCOM, GCOM-C, SGLI, remote sensing
SGLI will provide many standard products, 9 land-area products, 8 atmosphere products, 7 ocean products, and 4 cryosphere products which aim to contribute to environment monitoring and climate researches. In addition to the standard products, research products, such as net primary production, land cover, radiation flux, redtide and so on, have been identified. All of the standard products will be open to public freely one-year after the launch by JAXA standard data portal, G-portal. There are special near-real time data flows from the Svalbard receiving station and direct downlink capability. Our science team is constructing and refining the validation plan (instruments, measurements, data analysis flow, group coordination and so on) until the launch to achieve accuracy targets which are requested by the GCOM user committee.
Data product development has been conducted by JAXA and GCOM-C Principal Investigators (PIs). The PI team has been organized in summer 2009 as the first research period (Sep. 2009 - Mar. 2013), and followed by the second research period (Apr. 2013 - Mar. 2016). In the current second research period, we are intensively conducting development of the standard algorithm (operational processing codes) and validation preparation for the first version of the standard products which will be evaluated and released until one year after the satellite launch. The next collaboration research (Apr. 2016 - Mar. 2019) will be announced in the autumn 2015, and we will concentrate our effort on the preparation of the launch version algorithms, post-launch calibration and validation, and application of the GCOM-C products.
