News1st Atmospheric composition measurement by satellite and passenger aircraft


On October 26th and 27th, 2020, JAXA's spectrometers were installed in the passenger cabin on ANA's Haneda-Fukuoka flights to observe atmospheric composition over major Japanese megacities. This time, for the first observation using an actual passenger aircraft, we tried spectroscopic observation of atmospheric components mainly by confirming the observation procedure and identifying issues. The observation results will be posted on our website.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to ANA personnel and customers for their cooperation.
We will continue to detect individual greenhouse gas emissions in urban areas and acquire useful data for evaluating reduction effects.
