Satellite to Monitor Global Greenhouse Gases Launched Successfully

Efforts to tackle global warming received a boost today with the successful launch in Japan of a satellite to monitor greenhouse gases from space.

The Greenhouse Gases Observing Satellite “IBUKI” (or “GOSAT” in its English-language acronym) is the first satellite to observe greenhouse gases and monitor changes in the effects they cause. It was launched from the island of Tanegashima, in southern Japan, by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), a key partner of the United Nations’ regional arm – the United Nations Economic Commission for Asia and the Pacific(ESCAP) – in addressing disaster risk reduction and environmental issues.
