Global Imager (GLI) is the visible to infrared imager aboard ADEOS-II satellite with 30 and 6 channels for 1 km and 250m resolutions, respectively. The sensor was successfully captured the first image on January 25, 2003. Sea surface temperature (SST) will be retrieved in combination with simultaneous SST observation by low-resolution microwave sensor, AMSR-E. Distribution of chlorophyll and other constituents will be obtained from ocean color channels. Frequent observations with 250 m visible channels will be also available, and combination with 1 km ocean color and SST will be useful for coastal applications. Early scientific results of GLI ocean group will be presented in this presentation.
