Paper Abstract

A satellite borne FTIR called IMG (Interferometric Monitor for Greenhouse Gases) is now under development by JAROS (Japan Resources Observation System Organization) deputed by MITI (Ministry of International Trade and Industry). It will be installed on ADEOS (Advanced Earth Observing Satellite) which will be launched in Feb. 1996 by NASDA (National Space Development Agency of Japan). IMG is a very high spectral resolution (0.1 cm-1) spectrometer which covers a wide range of infrared spectrum (3.3-14 micrometers ). With these features, IMG can detect and monitor spatial and vertical distribution of greenhouse effect gases such as CO2, CH4, O3, etc. over the entire Earth.
