Paper Abstract

Global Change Observation Mission (GCOM) is a new generation of earth observation program by NASDA. GCOM aims to derive trends in climate system by long term and systematic measurements of atmosphere, ocean, and land. GCOM-A1 is one of the first generation of GCOM satellites to be launched in 2006, which was formerly called ADEOS-3A. GCOM-A1 will carry atmospheric instruments; two Japanese, Ozone Dynamics Ultraviolet Spectrometer (ODUS), and Solar Occultation Fourier transform spectrometer from Inclined Satellite (SOFIS), and one foreign atmospheric instrument and a GPS occultation instrument.
