[A-CG49] [JJ] Promotion of Application and Utilization of Aircrafts for Earth sciences
Sun. May 21, 2017 5:15 PM - 6:30 PM Poster Hall (International Exhibition Hall HALL7)
Under the current situation of rapid global environmental change, such as global warming, that affects the human societal activities and societal basis such as water and food, both the observational study of the Earth become more important as well as the studies on the numerical models. In particular, aircraft observation is expected to be better than the satellite and/or ground based observation when the immediate or direct observation is needed. For example, in situ measurements of the microscopic values such as concentration of greenhouse effect gaseous and size distribution and chemical components of aerosols and clouds are only available by aircraft observation. Aircraft observation is also useful for detailed remote sensing of typhoons, ecosystem, atmosphere, ocean, geodesy, volcanology, seismology. Activities of the aircraft observation has not been weighted in Japan comparing with other countries.
Recently, new observational technologies such as drones and unmanned aircrafts became to be utilized for the Earth observations. It indicates the concept of the aircraft observations has been changing now.
We would like to propose this session for the cross-cutting discussion over the fields of space and planetary sciences, atmospheric and hydrospheric sciences, human geosciences, solid Earth sciences, and biogeosciences on the new applications/utilization of aircraft that includes the new type aircraft observations, synergetic utilization with satellite and ground based observations, and collaboration with numerical model studies.
