ANA Group and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) are jointly promoting the GOBLEU project.
Trends in global greenhouse gases have been captured by the Greenhouse Gases Observing Satellite "IBUKI" (GOSAT) launched by Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) since 2009.
In the GOBLEU project, JAXA's observation equipment, which is based on the observation technology of the IBUKI, will be brought on board ANA passenger planes to observe the detailed concentration distribution of atmospheric components (carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, etc.) in major cities.
By combining this data with data acquired by satellites such as "IBUKI," we will be able to evaluate greenhouse gas emissions from human activities in urban areas by source, such as traffic and industry, which have been difficult to grasp with satellites that observe the entire earth.
We first acquired data by regular flights between Tokyo Haneda and Fukuoka city.
In the future, we will provide emission data over urban areas, where are responsible for more than 70% of global total greenhouse gases emission. We aim to contribute to the Paris Agreement by presenting reduction effects from different source sectors.
