7. DATASET OVERVIEW

7.1 Abstract

Three scale-types of datasets observed by new generation of remote sensing satellites (including TERRA, AQUA, ADEOS-II) in addition to TRMM and DMSP series, which were providing enhancement of observing capabilities to quantify critical atmospheric, surface, hydrologic and oceanographic data during CEOP time periods are available. 250 km square snapshots of the highest resolution raw radiances (with geographic location, i.e. level 1) remote sensing data at the 35-51 in situ reference sites are archived.

■Mission

Aqua (formerly EOS PM-1)

・Applications

6-year nominal mission life, currently in extended operations. Atmosphericdynamics/water and energy cycles, cloudformation, precipitationand radiativeproperties, air/seafluxes of energy andmoisture, sea ice extentand heat exchange with the atmosphere. Option of 705km or 438km orbit altitude.

■Instrument

Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer-EOS

・Instrument Type

Imaging multi-spectral radiometers (passive microwave)

・Measurements & Applications

Measurements of water vapour, cloud liquid water, precipitation, winds, sea surface temperature, sea ice concentration, snow cover and soil moisture

■Instrument Measurements

9. DATA REMARKS

10. USE CONSTRAINTS

10.1 Data Policy by Data Provider

1. No financial implications are involved for the CEOP satellite data exchange.

2. Commercial use and exploitation of CEOP satellite data is prohibited.

3. Any re-export or transfer of the original data received from the CEOP satellite data archive to a third party is prohibited.

4. The origin of CEOP satellite data being used for publication of scientific results must be acknowledged and referenced in the publication. Whenever CEOP satellite data distributed by the CEOP satellite data archive are being used for publication of scientific results, the data's origin must be acknowledged as: ""The satellite data is provided under the framework of the Coordinated Enhanced Observing Period (CEOP)."" for the Coordinated Enhanced Observing Period data (2001 - 2004), and as: ""The satellite data is provided under the framework of the Coordinated Energy and Water Cycle Observations Project (CEOP)."" for the Coordinated Energy and Water Cycle Observations Project data (2005 ~).

5. Whenever CEOP satellite data distributed by the CEOP satellite data archive are being used for publication of scientific results, the author(s) shall send a copy of the respective publication, preferably in electronic form, to the CEOP satellite data archive (ceop@monsoon.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp) in order to build up a CEOP publication library

Complete version of the CEOP Satellite Data Policy is http://monsoon.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp/ceop2/satellite/guideline-info.html."

A minimum requirement is to reference CEOP as:

"The satellite data is provided under the framework of the Coordinated Energy and Water Cycle Observations Project (CEOP)."

for the Coordinated Energy and Water Cycle Observations Project data (2005),

and as:

"The satellite data is provided under the framework of the Coordinated Enhanced Observing Period (CEOP)."

for the Coordinated Enhanced Observing Period data (2001 - 2004).

10.2 Data Policy for Project

10.2.1 Data Integration and Analysis System

The terms of data use of data providers take first priority over the DIAS data usage policy. In the event a data provider has not established terms of use, the following DIAS project data terms of use apply.

1. Users shall prioritize and abide by terms of use stipulated by a data provider in the event such exist

2. The use of DIAS data sets is limited to research and educational purposes [*1]

3. Users shall not modify the content of DIAS data sets

4. Users shall not provide the content of DIAS data sets to third parties

5. In the event of using DIAS data sets in an academic presentation, paper, article, or report, etc., users shall cite in parenthesis the text given as the data citation

6. In the event of using DIAS data sets in an academic presentation, paper, article, or report, etc., users shall submit a copy of the work (an offprint in the case of a paper, or a copy of the lecture summary in the case of an oral or poster presentation) to the DIAS office below

[*1] Data sets whose commercial usage are allowed under the data policy by data provider will be also allowed to be used commercially as DIAS data sets, after ongoing preparation works have been completed. Please contact the DIAS Office for more details.
