GOSAT is a Japanese climate change EO mission, developed by JAXA. The mission carries two thermal and near infrared sensors for carbon observation – a Fourier Transform Spectrometer (TANSO-FTS) and a Cloud and Aerosol Imager (TANSO-CAI). The objective of the mission is to provide monitoring of the sources and sinks of CO2 on a sub-continental scale in support of the Kyoto protocol. ESA offers access to worldwide GOSAT data (both archived and new acquisitions) via the TPM scheme. Read more
