The Greenhouse gases Observing SATellite (GOSAT) Project is a joint effort promoted by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES) and the Ministry of the Environment (MOE).
Jason-3 will continue the time series of ocean surface topography data after TOPEX/Poseidon, Jason-1 and Jason-2. Launch is planned for 2015.
MRO - Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) launched in 2005 and is on a search for evidence that water persisted on the surface of Mars for a long period of time.
OCO-2 - Orbiting Carbon Observatory
The Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) is a mission designed to make precise, time-dependent global measurements of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) from an Earth orbiting satellite.
The Surface Water Ocean Topography Mission provides measurements of land surface water storage and ocean surface dynamic topography.
GRAIL (Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory)
The Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory, or GRAIL, mission is a part of NASA's Discovery Program. It is scheduled to launch in 2011.
UAVSAR, is a reconfigurable, polarimetric L-band synthetic aperture radar (SAR), is specifically designed to acquire airborne repeat track SAR data for differential interferometric measurements.
NASA-ISRO SAR Mission (NISAR)
NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar, or NISAR, is a satellite radar mission run jointly by NASA and the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) that will survey Earth’s changing ecosystems, dynamic surface, and ice masses.
GeoGateway is a data product search and analysis gateway for scientific discovery, field use, and disaster response. GeoGateway focuses on NASA geodetic imaging products from InSAR and GPS integrated with earthquake faults datasets, seismicity, and ...
The MODIS/ASTER (MASTER) airborne simulator is a joint development involving the Airborne Sensor Facility at the Ames Research Center, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the EROS Data Center.
HyspIRI Mission Study
The Hyperspectral Infrared Imager or HyspIRI mission will study the worlds ecosystems and provide critical information on natural disasters.
PREFIRE (Polar Radiant Energy in the Far-InfraRed Experiment)
Polar Radiant Energy in the Far-InfraRed Experiment (PREFIRE) will quantify the radiative processes effected by changing temperatures in the Arctic.
OMG (Oceans Melting Greenland)
OMG uses the GLISTIN-A radar to measure Greenland's receding glaciers, air-dropped ocean sensors to measure the nearby oceans, as well as ship-based sonar and airborne gravity to map the depth and shape of the sea floor around the glaciers.
GRACE, the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment, provide measurements of the Earth’s gravity field, including the variability of ocean mass.
GRACE Follow-On, the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment Follow-On, provides measurements of the Earth’s month-to-month mass variations.
Launching the first of two satellite altimeters in 2020, Jason-CS (Sentnel-6) will continue measuring ocean surface topography through 2030.
CLARS is an observing facility for the measurement of greenhouse gases and pollutant emissions from sources in the South Coast Air Basin.
