Abstract

The Global Imager (GLI) aboard the ADEOS-II satellite launched in December 14, 2002 observed sunlight reflection and infrared emission from the Earth's surface globally, and detected various geophysical parameters (e.g. snow and sea-ice cover extent, snow grain size and impurity). They will contribute to investigation of global hydrological cycle and radiation budget that are primal factors of the global climate change. Preliminary analysis results of the GLI snow products with 6-month GLI data and their validation results are presented.
