MOS Data Consolidation and Reprocessing

The Marine Observation Satellite-1(MOS-1), is the Japan's first Earth Observation Satellite :

• MOS-1 was launched by N-II launch vehicle on February 19th 1987

• Operation of MOS-1 finished on NOV 29th 1995 due to degradation of batteries.

The scope of the MOS Data consolidation project is to generate an improved dataset on the basis of one or several input datasets, through cleansing (removal of corrupted data, removal of duplicated files), homogenisation (of file names and formats), mutual gap-filling and reduction of redundancy.

The resulting consolidated dataset is a natural candidate to become the master dataset for the mission / instrument / coverage in this specific case for MOS data
