  Japan’s Basic Strategy for Earth Observation
       Council for Science & Technology Policy (March 2006)
 • Needs for an integral observation by satellites, ships, buoys, ground
   stations and so on,
 • Establishment of a integral observation system from the user’s point
   of view,
 • One of the tools for policy making,
 • Contribution to GEOSS (Global Earth Observation System of
   Systems) especially on following 3 Societal Benefit Areas
    – Water, Climate & Disaster

                      GOSAT Mission Targets
1. To observe global GHG density distribution
     – CO2 and CH4 column density observation
     – at 100-1000km spatial scale
     – with relative accuracy of 0.3-1% for CO2 (1-4ppm) and 0.6-2% for CH4
     – during the Kyoto Protocol's first commitment period (2008 to 2012).
2. To reduce the annual flux estimation error in the sub-continental scale
     – CO2 annual flux estimation errors by half to1/5 (0.54 to 0.27 GtC/yr).
3. To develop technologies for GHG measurement from space
     –    by developing SWIR (short wave infrared) and TIR (thermal infrared)
         Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FTS) and highly reliable and robust
         satellite system.

                        Overview of GCOM
•   The Purpose of GCOM is to demonstrate monitoring the climate change by
    satellite observation.
•   GCOM consists of two kinds of satellites, GCOM-W and GCOM-C.
     – GCOM-W will contribute to the observations related to global water and
        energy circulation.
     – GCOM-C will contribute to the surface and atmospheric measurements
        related to the carbon cycle and radiation budget.
•   GCOM is long-term mission to observe more than 10 years.
     – Three consecutive generations of satellites with one year overlap in
        orbit enables over 13years observation in total.
