The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency 4th ALOS Research Announcement (RA) has solicited research proposals for science and utilization research using the Advanced Land Observing Satellite-2 (ALOS-2), which carries the L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar, PALSAR-2.
ALOS-2 will utilize high resolution based advanced land observation technologies. ALOS-2 will be used for disaster ring, environmental monitoring for sustainable Earth in forestry, cryospheric, and sea ice, natural resources, technology development for the future Earth remote sensing (satellite and sensor).
In this context, the EOSIAL Lab. is involved in 2 research projects: Forest Fires damage assessment, and Oil Spill pollution monitoring.
