    AMSR2-based El-nino watch page updated.
  • After the AMSR-E observations were stopped, WindSat data had been used as alternative data. however, WindSat data were replaced by AMSR2 data since July 2012.

    AMSR-E Slow Rotation Data has been released
  • The AMSR-E automatically halted its observations and rotation on October 4, 2011 (UTC) due to increased rotation friction. After then NASA and JAXA began to analyze the situation and had been seeking for the way to restart AMSR-E observation. And on December 4, 2012 (UTC,) the AMSR-E restarted its observations and rotation with slow rotation (2 rotations per minute). JAXA completed initial radiometric and geometric correction for slow rotation data, and now AMSR-E Slow Rotation Data is available to public users.
  • This data is useful for users who cross-calibrate AMSR-E with other radiometers and who try to research using new feature by slow rotation and so on. This data is not JAXA's standard product. AMSR2 Standard Product is available for general user.
    The detail is described in the following page.
