- <GOSAT TANSO-FTS observation restart after the reset operation>
The bias correction set value of Zero Path Difference (ZPD) position had been accumulated and reached the limit.
We suspended the FTS observation on August 24, 2021. After the FTS reset operation, the FTS observation restarted on August 26.
(1) The FTS observation was suspended from 2021-08-24 20:05:28 to 2021-08-26 02:39:24 (UT). (*)
(2) The FTS observation with 3-point grid mode restarted at 2021-08-26 02:39:25 (UT).
(3) The FTS nominal operation adding full target observations restarted on 2021-08-31 (UT).
(*)The FTS was temporally operated in "Observation mode 1 Day side" on August 25 to confirm the ZPD position after the reset operation.
- <Upgrade of Bias corrected FTS SWIR Level 2 and Level 3 CO2 Products>
Bias corrected FTS SWIR Level 2 and Level 3 CO2 Products have been upgraded as below. For the details, please refer to the release notes on "Documents & Technical Information" page.

- <Temporal observation suspension of GOSAT TANSO-FTS: FTS reset operation>
The bias correction set value of Zero Path Difference (ZPD) position has been accumulated and reached the limit.
We have operated the FTS standby mode and suspended the FTS observation at 20:05:28(UT) on August 24, 2021.
During the FTS restart procedure, we will apply only 3-point cross track grid observation.
We will notify users after restarting the FTS nominal operation, adding target observations.
- <To RA users>
FTS TIR Level 2 H2O Column Amount Product has been released to RA users. Ver. 01.20. FTS TIR Level 2 H2O Column Amount Product is calculated using TIR L2 products(V01.20) based on FTS L1B product (Ver. 161.160) and, stores the H2O column amount, the H2O dry air mixing ratio, the dry air column amount, and the a priori H2O column amount. As with the TIR L2 products (V01.20), the observation period from April 23, 2009 to May 24, 2014 is covered.
For the details, please see "V01.20 for RA (release of H2O column amount)" at "Important Notes at Releasing" in "FTS L2 CO2 profile / CH4 profile/ H2O column amount (TIR)" on "Documents & Information" page after the login.
- <Announcement of GDAS System Service Recovery>
GDAS stopped due to a power outage around 7:55 on 11 July, 2021(UT).
It was recovered around 7:02 on 12 July, 2021(UT) and the services were restarted as usual.
