Paper Abstract

Japanese remote sensor ASTER was successfully launched on the NASA's Satellite Terra on December 18, 1999 by the cooperation between METI and NASA HQ, and ASTER is working without any major problems and continues to provide ASTER data. This is a result of the cooperation between US and Japan, especially ASTER Science Team, NASA GSFC, JPL, JAROS and ERSDAC. After the period of the Initial Checkout, ASTER GDS started ASTER data distribution to the public, and ASTER data is currently available without any restriction. In this paper, activities of ASTER operation and some scientific results are provided.
