DATASET OVERVIEW

Abstract

The CEOP satellite datasets are geo-coded data resampled to regular latitude longitude grid on three type scales: reference site scale, monsoon scale, and global scale. It is easy to compare satellite data with in-situ measurement and or model output. Also, the satellite datasets include radiance data and geo-physical parameter such as soil moisture, vegetation index, water vapor, precipitation, sea surface temperature and so on, which are retrieved from data of AIRS,MODIS, AMSR-E, SSM/I, PR, TMI, AVNIR2, PALSAR and PRISM.

The CEOP-AIRS datasets are generated on 35 reference sites and 5 monsoon regions during EOP-3,4 date period.

USE CONSTRAINTS

Data Policy by Data Provider

1. No financial implications are involved for the CEOP satellite data exchange.

2. Commercial use and exploitation of CEOP satellite data is prohibited.

3. Any re-export or transfer of the original data received from the CEOP satellite data archive to a third party is prohibited.

4. The origin of CEOP satellite data being used for publication of scientific results must be acknowledged and referenced in the publication. Whenever CEOP satellite data distributed by the CEOP satellite data archive are being used for publication of scientific results, the data's origin must be acknowledged as: ""The satellite data is provided under the framework of the Coordinated Enhanced Observing Period (CEOP)."" for the Coordinated Enhanced Observing Period data (2001 - 2004), and as: ""The satellite data is provided under the framework of the Coordinated Energy and Water Cycle Observations Project (CEOP)."" for the Coordinated Energy and Water Cycle Observations Project data (2005 ~).

5. Whenever CEOP satellite data distributed by the CEOP satellite data archive are being used for publication of scientific results, the author(s) shall send a copy of the respective publication, preferably in electronic form, to the CEOP satellite data archive (ceop@monsoon.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp) in order to build up a CEOP publication library.
