The 2nd Research Announcement on the Earth Observations (Prior notice)

About the second Research Announcement on the Earth Observations

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) / Earth Observation Research Center (EORC) now conducts the second Research Announcement on the Earth Observations (EO-RA2) for its Earth observation satellite projects. EORC calls for research proposals that should contribute to the mission objectives or mission assurances for each satellite mission, develop new applications or promote Earth science by using single or multiple JAXA Earth Observation satellites data.

The target JAXA missions of EO-RA2 are GCOM-W, GCOM-C, GPM, ALOS-2, ALOS-3, ALOS-4, MOLI, EarthCARE and AMSR3.

Note)
The research proposals for the Greenhouse Gases Observing Satellite (GOSAT) and its successor (GOSAT-2) will be excluded from the scope of this EO-RA2, since the dedicated RA for these satellites has been conducted in collaboration with the Ministry of the Environment and the National Institute for Environmental Studies.

The research categories for this EO-RA2 applied to each satellite mission are shown below.
