ADEOS (ADvanced Earth Observation Satellite), developed by the Japanese space agency JAXA. ADEOS-II, the successor to ADEOS, has been developed to advance Earth observation technologies. It acquires ... data to help researchers understand the mechanism of the global environmental changes such as global warming and to support meteorology and fishery activities.It is equipped with two JAXA sensors (AMSR and GLI) and three sensors provided by international and domestic partners (ILAS-II, SeaWinds Scatterometer and POLDER).ADEOS-II is expected to provide the data necessary for us to understand the circulation of water, energy, and carbon in order to contribute to studies on global environmental changes. ADEOS-II has been launched in December 2002 by H-II launcher from Tanegashima Space Center and was lost on October 2003, the 24th.[http://smsc.cnes.fr/POLDER/index.htm]
