GOSAT Series Project

Technology / Service Summary

The GOSAT Series is a series of satellites aiming to observe greenhouse gases from space. Since the launch of GOSAT in 2009, we have provided long-term CO2 and methane concentration data.


The primary objective of the GOSAT Project is to enhance the precision of estimating global greenhouse gas emissions and absorptions. It also aims to support environmental administration in assessing the carbon balance of terrestrial ecosystems and making regional emissions and absorptions assessments more accurately. By analyzing the GOSAT data, scientists aim to gain insight into the global distribution and temporal variation of the greenhouse gases, as well as their impacts on global carbon cycle and climate. These discovers will help us to predict future climate and evaluating their consequences. In addition, the Project aims to expand existing earth observing satellite technologies, develop new methodologies for greenhouse gas measurement, and promote technological development necessary for future earth-observing satellites.
