- Aug. 23, 2021Selection result of the third Research Announcement on Greenhouse gases Observing SATellite Series (3rd GOSAT RA) released. Selection result for the proposals submitted after the application deadline was extended on January 15, 2021 will be announced later.
- Jan. 15, 2021In consideration of the current situation regarding the COVID-19 spread in Japan and overseas, the application deadline of the Third Research Announcement on Greenhouse Gases Observing SATellite Series (3rd GOSAT RA) is extended until Monday, March 15, 2021. Please note that the proposals received by the initial deadline of January 15, 2021 will be evaluated as initially scheduled.
- Nov. 13, 2020The Third Research Announcement on Greenhouse Gases Observing SATellite Series (3rd GOSAT RA) was released and is now open for proposal submission until Friday, January 15, 2021.
The Greenhouse gases Observing SATellite (GOSAT) has been observing global atmospheric greenhouse gases steadily even today in the eleventh year since its launch in January 2009. The successor, GOSAT-2 was launched on October 29, 2018 and has started its nominal operation in February 2019.
Given this situation, the Research Announcement on Greenhouse Gases Observing Satellite Series has started newly since 2018 to solicit research proposals utilizing GOSAT and GOSAT-2 data from the public. The third GOSAT RA was released and is now open for proposal submission.
If you plan to conduct research using GOSAT and GOSAT-2 data, please read the following documents carefully and send your research proposal and application documents to GOSAT RA Secretariat by the due date. We are really looking forward to receiving your original proposals.
