The Joint PI Meeting of JAXA Earth Observation Missions FY2020

Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) will hold the Joint PI Meeting of JAXA Earth Observation Missions FY2020 as below. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been decided that we will have online meeting this time.

Main objectives of the meeting are review of the yearly results from Principal Investigators (PIs) of JAXA Global Environmental Observation Missions, GCOM-W, AMSR3, GCOM-C, PMM, EarthCARE, ALOS-2, ALOS-3, ALOS-4, MOLI, and encouragement of collaboration among those science groups. We considered the time schedule carefully so that many foreign participants could join, also fixed the sessions avoiding overlap. For this purpose, many sessions start from morning or evening and the term of the meeting is longer than usual. Poster sessions are also scheduled in order to share the research results as much as possible. Participants are mainly limited to PIs and CIs.

Joint Plenary Sessions are scheduled on January 18 and 19, 2021. Mission explanation and status report will be given from JAXA satellite project managers and international partners. The session theme is observation of Aerosol, Clouds, Convection and Precipitation (ACCP) and integrated process understanding. PIs and CIs, we are waiting for your registration and participation.
