The third-generation geostationary satellites, such as Himawari 8/9, GOES-16/17, Fengyun-4, and GeoKompsat-2A are recently launched, and earth observation is in a new phase. These sensors are equipped with new spectral bands suitable for terrestrial monitoring used in polar-orbiting satellite sensors, enabling detailed land observations such as land surface temperature, surface albedo, and land cover and vegetation dynamics. Furthermore, by utilizing the advantages of hypertemporal (e.g. 10 min) and moderate spatial resolution, various new land dynamics can be observable. By combining these satellites and polar-orbiting satellites/sensors such as Terra/MODIS and GCOM-C/SGLI, a new generation monitoring data covering Asia, Oceania and North and South America will become possible. This would allow for a consistent comparison of a variety of phenomena across continents. To this end, there are many issues to be discussed, such as the standardization of the estimation algorithms of physical quantities, calibration and verification using GEO-(LEO)-GEO satellites, and application of these new datasets to various phenomena.
In this session, we will discuss the retrieval algorithms of land surface parameters, inter-satellite calibration, validation efforts using in-situ data, and novel applications to various phenomena. Studies on atmospheric parameters in relation to land surface phenomena, such as cloud cover are aerosol, are highly welcomed.
