DATASET OVERVIEW

Abstract

Three scale-types of datasets observed by new generation of remote sensing satellites (including TERRA, AQUA, ADEOS-II) in addition to TRMM and DMSP series, which were providing enhancement of observing capabilities to quantify critical atmospheric, surface, hydrologic and oceanographic data during CEOP time periods are available. 250 km square snapshots of the highest resolution raw radiances (with geographic location, i.e. level 1) remote sensing data at the 35-51 in situ reference sites are archived.

”Satellite

ERSF

European Remote Sensing Satellite No.1 (ERS-1) was launched into a solar-synchronous orbit at an altitude of about 780 km in 1991. It is an Earth Observation Satellite to mainly observe ocean, sea ice districution, sea surface wind, oceanic circulation, etc. and observes land areas with a high-resolution radar, too.

Synthetic Aperture Radar (AMI), Scatterometer (SCAT), Radar Altimeter (RA), Scanning Radiomter and Sounder (ATSR-M), Laser Reflector (LRR), Precision Ranging Equipment (PRARE) are equipped with the satellite and data other than those by SAR can be recorded by the data recorder. The satellite has three modes of operation in a recurrent period of 35 days as standard, 3 days, and 176 days flying at an altitude of 780 km in a solar-synchronous orbit with an inclination of 98.5.

USE CONSTRAINTS

Data Policy for Project

Data Integration and Analysis System

The terms of data use of data providers take first priority over the DIAS data usage policy. In the event a data provider has not established terms of use, the following DIAS project data terms of use apply.

1. Users shall prioritize and abide by terms of use stipulated by a data provider in the event such exist

2. The use of DIAS data sets is limited to research and educational purposes [*1]

3. Users shall not modify the content of DIAS data sets

4. Users shall not provide the content of DIAS data sets to third parties

5. In the event of using DIAS data sets in an academic presentation, paper, article, or report, etc., users shall cite in parenthesis the text given as the data citation

6. In the event of using DIAS data sets in an academic presentation, paper, article, or report, etc., users shall submit a copy of the work (an offprint in the case of a paper, or a copy of the lecture summary in the case of an oral or poster presentation) to the DIAS office below

[*1] Data sets whose commercial usage are allowed under the data policy by data provider will be also allowed to be used commercially as DIAS data sets, after ongoing preparation works have been completed. Please contact the DIAS Office for more details.
