GLIcharaguide_jp20030314.pdf (if you cannot read it, please try this.)
Sorry, this document is only in Japanese
We will translate to English future.
It is edited by the GLI-JAXA calibration groups (1-6 groups) and the GLI-PI calibration working group.
It includes describes GLI pre-launch-tests summaries, their analysis results and useful tables for Level-1 data users.
Post launch results will be released after GLI calibration activities.
It is include following information for Level-1 data use.
* table of GLI band performance summary (see Table 3.2-2 in P12)
* relative spectral response of all GLI bands (see Appendix 1)
* GLI band weighted irradiance (see 4.3.2 in P31)
* tables of MTIR radiance and brightness temperature conversion (see Appendix 2)
