GOSAT and GOSAT-2 Projects
The map episodes of CO2 and CH4 were created with the images of L2 data products* (Ver.02.21+Ver.02.31+Ver.02.40) measured by the instruments onborad GOSAT from June 2009 to July 2015.
* Level 2 data products
The FTS SWIR Level 2 data products store the column abundances of CO2 and CH4 retrieved from the radiance spectra in the band 1 through 3 of FTS. The column abundance of a gas species is defined as the number of the gas molecule in a vertical unit column stretching from the ground surface to the top of the atmosphere.
