26 October 2007 Calibration plan of GOSAT sensors
Author Affiliations +
Greenhouse gases Observing SATellite (GOSAT) is a Japanese mission to observe greenhouse gases, such as CO2 and CH4, from space. The GOSAT carries a Fourier transform spectrometer and a push broom imager. The GOSAT development is going on in phase-C/D and characterized the sensor performance in laboratory. In orbit, the observation data will be evaluated by onboard calibration data and implemented by ground processing system. The post-launch calibration items are planned and the methods will be developed before the launch. The methods are investigated by analyzing the current MODIS data, which has similar wavelength bands to GOSAT. In this paper, we show the calibration plans of pre-flight test, onboard calibration, and post-launch vicarious calibration of GOSAT sensors.
