Abstract
ADEOS-2 is the Earth observing satellite which was successfully launched on December, 14, 2003. It is a follow-on mission to the ADEOS and the first mission of GCOM series which are planed to be operated for 20 years. The missions are (1) quantitative estimation of water and energy cycle relevant to the climatic change, (2) quantitative estimation of carbon cycle (biomass and net primary productivity) relevant to the global warming, and (3) detection of long term climatic change signal from data sets of ADEOS and ADEOS-II. Based on these missions scientific objectives are defined to be (1) quantitative estimation of water and energy cycle relevant to the climatic change,(2) quantitative estimation of carbon cycle (biomass and net primary productivity) relevant to the global warming, and (3) detection of long term climatic change signal from data sets of ADEOS and ADEOS-II. In order to achieve these goals, the ADEOS-2 Science program was established in NASDA. Standard and research products are defined there. Various validation projects are planned and will be implemented. The characteristics of the ADEOS-2 Science program can be summarized to be integrations in the following three fields, that is, (1) integration between different channels, (2) integration between different sensors and (3) integration between satellite remote sensing data and numerical models.
