The Cloud and Aerosol Imager (CAI) onboard the Greenhouse gases Observing SATellite (GOSAT) captures striking images of smoke billowing from the forest fires on the Indonesian island of Sumatra.
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).
NIES organized the research team dedicated to the GOSAT project within its organization in April 2004, and since then has been working for the research and development with respect to GOSAT "IBUKI".
