Conquering Global Warming: Contributing to the GEO Global Carbon Project

Earth observation satellite data is a crucial element of the battle against global warming. The Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Ministerial Summit was held in Beijing on November 5, 2010, to discuss data sharing and the construction of the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS), an international network of carbon-measurement tools and databases. Until recently, JAXA’s contritbution to GEO had focused on disaster management, through the Sentinel Asia Project, and using mainly the Advanced Land Observing Satellite DAICHI. However, since the Greenhouse Gases Observing Satellite IBUKI went into operation, JAXA has expanded its efforts in the area of carbon monitoring, and assumed a greater role in the global campaign to reduce greenhouse gases.

The 5th GEOSS Asia-Pacific Symposium
will be held in Tokyo, Japan, from 16 to 18 March 2011.
The Symposium is being organized by the GEO with the support of Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). Its theme is "Towards the Establishment of Data Sharing and Data Integration in the Asia-Pacific Region", and its objective is to promote the exchange of data and information through the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) and to find solutions for achieving societal benefits through GEOSS in the Asia-Pacific region.
