    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1214560151-JAXA.xml
    Description:

    The Global Rain Forest Mapping Project (GRFM) is an effort led by the Earth Observation Research Center (EORC) of the National Space Development Agency of Japan (NASDA) in cooperation with, among others, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), NASA's Alaska SAR Facility (ASF), the Space Applications Institute of the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (JRC/SAI), the Unversity of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), the Brazilian National Institute for Space Research (INPE) and the National Institute for Research of the Amazon(INPA). Its goal is to acquire contiguous Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data sets of the Earth's major rain forests using the Japanese Earth Resources Satellite (JERS-1 or FUYO-1). This project is divided into three geographical regions : South and Central America, Central and Western Africa, and South-East Asia and Northern Australia. Each region was observed at least once during a "single season" between September 1995 and January 1997. Several CD-ROMs are available or are planned to be available during 1999 and 2000. Planned data sets include: AM-1 - Selected scenes from South America (2 CD-ROMs) AM-2 - Scenes from South America, September/December 1995 (2 CD-ROMs) AVAILABLE NOW.

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1214560188-JAXA.xml
    Description:

    JERS-1 is an Earth Observation Satellite to cover the global land area for national land survey, agriculture, forestry, and fishery, environmental protection, disaster protection, and coastal monitoring, etc. focusing on observation around the world and resource exploitation. It was launched into a solar-synchronous sub-recurrent orbit at an altitude of 568 km with a recurrent period of 44 days by the H-I launch vehicle on February 11, 1992 from National Space Development Agency of Japan (NASDA) Tanegashima Space Center, and has been continuing to observe and collect data with a mission data recorder by the high performance Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and Optical Sensor (OPS). SAR is an active sensor which transmits microwave and observes characteristics, inequality, slope in the surface of the earth, etc. without being influenced by the weatherday and night due to scattered waves from the Earth. OPS can observe in seven bands from the visible region to short wave infrared band and is capable of stereoscopic observation by forward look of 15.3?? from nadir in near infrared band and highly is usable for identifying stones, rocks, and minerals. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- JERS-1 --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Shape Structure Box type approx. 1m x 1.8m x 3.1m Synthetic aperture radar approx. 12m x 2.5m Solar cell paddle approx. 8m x 3.4m Weight About 1.4t Attitude control Three-axis stabilized(zero momentum) Design life 2 years Launch vehicle H-I(2-stage) Launch site Tanegashima Space Center, Kagoshima Launch date February 11, 1992 Operation end date October 12, 1998 Orbit Type Sun synchronous sub-recurrent orbit Altitude Approx. 570km Inclination Approx. 98 deg.

  • JERS-1 Optical Sensor Very Near Infrared Radiometer (VNIR) System Corrected Products level 1

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1214560031-ESA.xml
    Description:

    The JERS-1 Optical System (OPS) is composed of Very Near Infrared Radiometer(VNIR) and Short Wave Infrared Radiometer (SWIR). OPS has 8 observable spectral bands from visible to short wave infrared. The JERS-1 OPS digital products are recorded in a a format that is conform to the CEOS Standard Family Format conventions. This product is available only for VNIR sensor. All the four bands are corrected. The correction consists in a vertical and horizontal destriping, the radiometry values are expanded from the range [0,63] to the range [0,255]. No geometrical correction is applied on the level 1. The pixel size of approximatly 18 x 24.2 meters for raw data is newly dimensioned to 18 x 18 meters for System Corrected data using a cubic convolution algorithm. Raw data images have 3200 lines of 4096 pixels. system corrected images have 4096 lins of 4512 pixels including left and right filled pixels. No radiometric correction is applied at the moment due to the lack of the calibration coefficients. To order data please see "http://earth.esa.int/helpandmail/help_order.html"

Each region was observed at least once during a "single season" between September 1995 and January 1997. South and Central America The entire Amazon Basin, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, was acquired in a single sweep during the generally low flood time of the Amazon River in September - December 1995. This portion of the data set comprises some 1500 (ASF processed) scenes and covers an area of about 8 million km2. The same area, including the Northern part of South America and Central America, was covered again in May - August 1996, during a high flood period of the Amazon river.

Africa SAR data over central and West Africa, from the Eastern coast of Kenya to Liberia and Guinea in the West were acquired in January-March 1996. The area covered lies between 9 deg north and 9 deg South, extends approximately 6000km along the equator and amounts to about 2000 NASDA processed scenes or 8 million km2. The Congo River Basin, about 3.5 million km2, was also covered during October - November 1996 (the high water season of the river). Madagascar was acquired in January 1997.
