Paper Abstract

ADEOS is the first polar orbit earth observation platform equipped with multiple earth observation sensors and it is no exaggeration to say that its scientific results will determine the future trends of global environment observation. It was launched from Tanegashima Space Center on 17 Aug. 1996, and all the eight sensors on-board had been operational and had sent data of the global environment. The contents of the ADEOS science program are preparation and adjustment of the program, development of algorithms, preparation of datasets, CAL/VAL of sensors and products, implementation of field campaigns, collection and analysis of field campaign data, management of JRA research activities, examination of ADEOS data system, arrangement of ADEOS sensor operation requests, and activities to disseminate and to encourage the use of ADEOS data. Unfortunately, ADEOs has stopped its operation on 30 June 1997 because of solar paddle failure. However, ADEOS had collected about 8 to 9 months data from its on-board sensors, and the ADEOS science program is still going on using these data. This paper describes the outline of ADEOS science program and its current status.
