Request-based High Frequency Regional Observations by JMA and KMA

Himawari Request by JMA

The HimawariRequest service enables registered NMHS users to request particular Target Area observations in order to leverage this flexibility on an international scale. The service stems from a WMO RA II (Asia) regional project to develop support for NMHSs in satellite data, products and training in collaboration with WMO RA V (South-West Pacific) Members.

JMA expects the HimawariRequest service to support disaster risk reduction activities in the region based on the monitoring of extreme events such as tropical cyclones and volcanic eruptions.

Geo-Kompsat-2A AMI Rapid Scan (ARS) Service by KMA

The Advanced Meteorological Imager (AMI) on board Geo-Kompsat-2A (GK2A) is capable of frequent and flexible observation, providing full disk images of the Earth every 10 minutes and regional images at shorter intervals. Full disk and other regional observations have spatial resolutions of 0.5 to 2 km and spectral coverage incorporating 16 channels.

The GK2A AMI Rapid-Scan (ARS) service allows National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) to request particular Target Area observations by leveraging the location flexibility on an international scale.
