Paper Abstract

The Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer-2 (AMSR2) has launched as a single mission instrument onboard on the first satellite of the Water Series of Global Change Observation Mission (GCOM-W1). AMSR2 is a multi-frequency, total-power microwave radiometer system with dual polarization channels for all frequency bands, and a successor of AMSR on the Advanced Earth Observing Satellite-II (ADEOS-II) and AMSR for the Earth Observing System (AMSRE) on NASA’s Aqua satellite. Participation of GCOM-W1 in the A-Train constellation has been coordinated. GCOMW1 was launched on May 18th, 2012, and initial products will be introduced.
