19 November 2012 Observation of aerosol parameters at Saga using GOSAT product validation lidar
Author Affiliations +
Greenhouse gases Observation SATellite (GOSAT) was launched to enable the precise monitoring of the density of carbon dioxide by combining global observation data sent from space with data obtained on land, and with simulation models. In addition, observation of methane, another greenhouse gas, has been considered. For validation of GOSAT data products, ground-base observation with Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FTS), aerosol lidar and ozone-DIAL (DIfferencial Absorption Lidar) at Saga University, JAPAN has been continued since March, 2011. In this article, observation results obtained from aerosol lidar are reported.
