The Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA) geostational meteorological satellite, Himawari-8, carrying Advanced Himawari Imager (AHI) has been in regular operation since July 7, 2015. Before the AHI, geostational meteorological sensors hardly observed ocean color due to only one broad band in visible wavelengths and relatively large radiometric noise. However, AHI has six spectral bands from visible to shortwave infrared wavelengths (470 nm, 510 nm, 640 nm, 856 nm, 1610 nm, and 2257 nm) in… CONTINUE READING
