Abstract
The Global Imager (GLI) on Advanced Earth Observing Satellite-II (ADEOS-II) launched on 14 December 2002 is an optical sensor to observe reflected solar radiation and infrared radiation. GLI has 36 channels from ultraviolet region (380nm) to thermal infrared (12micron). GLI data is used for understanding the global circulation of carbon, monitoring cloud, snow, ice, and sea surface temperature. NASDA carried out initial checkout to confirm GLI basic function until April 2003. Currently GLI calibration team that consists of sensor development division, ground system integration division, and science application group analyses calibration and validation to release L1 data at the end of this year. This report describes calibration and instrument status of GLI.
