[PEM10-P04] Initial report on PMC observations by Himawari-8
Keywords:PMC, NLC, Himawari-8, Geostationary-Earth-Orbit satellite, Space-borne imaging
In this presentation, we will make an initial report on PMCs observed by Himawari-8, the Japanese Geostationary-Earth-Orbit (GEO) meteorological satellite. In the regular operation of Himawari-8, full-disk images of the Earth are obtained every 10 minutes with ~1 km spatial resolution. We can find PMC emissions in the Earth’s limb region of the full-disk images. Thus, Himawari-8 provides PMC observations by continuous limb-viewing from its almost fixed locations relative to the Earth. We will introduce our initial results on Himawari-8 observed PMCs and discuss future PMC research utilizing the Himawari-8 observations.
