Scope In recent years, we cannot avoid facing issues on global environmental changes that occur in various spatiotemporal scales. The earth environmental observation data by satellites became the necessary basic data to tackle and solve those issues. Due to the recent advancement in the observation sensor technique and the data processing technique, the satellite observation has been showing rapid progress, and the time is changing from examining the accuracy of the observation sensor data to the advancement of the data application, leading to broaden potential users. Although earth environmental remote sensing studies tended to be discussed separately in the individual conference so far, in these days where application became synergetic, we comprehensively pick up this topic in the Atmospheric and Hydrospheric Sciences Session of this Union Meeting that enables to comprise the atmospheric, oceanic and land sciences; by combining the intelligence and the knowledge of the party, we propose a session that aims to prompt further studies towards the issues on earth environmental change and the advancement in the data application.
In this Part I session, Japanese earth and planetary science activities that are stimulated by and benefited from NASA space missions will be reviewed. The topics include research opportunities enabled from the data from NASA missions, contributions from Japan that enhanced outputs from NASA missions and correlative studies on science issues related to JAXA and NASA space missions. The speakers are expected to point out lessons-learned in the course of research and to raise issues that need improvement in order to collaborate more smoothly and fruitfully in the future.
