TROPOSAT relies for its data on space missions presently in operation, mainly the ESA ERS-2 with GOME and ATSR on board. Recently, the ESA ENVISAT (March 2002) with SCIAMACHY and AATSR on board and the Meteosat Second Generation (August 2002) with SEVERI on board have become available. The NASA operational missions EOS TERRA (MOPITT) and EOS Aqua (AIRS) provide complementary information on methane and CO. In future, space missions already approved will provide continuity of data from the EUMETSAT MetOp 1, 2 and 3 series (2005–2015) with GOME-2 and IASI on board, as well as the NASA EOS Aura (2004–2007 with OMI, TES, HRDLS and MLS) providing new data in addition. The NASDA ADEOS-II (end 2003) with TES and ILAS-2 on board and GCOM-A1 (2007), Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Satellite) missions represent the Japanese contribution to troposphere observation from space.
