14 May 2019
EUMETSAT and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) today signed an agreement which will result in the agencies working closely together to monitor greenhouse gases in the Earth's atmosphere.
"This cooperation with EUMETSAT is crucial to promote the satellite data to support improving national greenhouse gases inventories reports as well as precise understanding of the status of global greenhouse gases," Mr Kazuo Tachi said. "JAXA also would like to enhance GOSAT and GOSAT-2 data utilisation in weather forecasting operations through cooperation with EUMETSAT."
