Abstract

One of the main missions of the Advanced Land Observing Satellite-2 (ALOS-2, 'DAICHI-2' ) is the disaster monitoring. Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has operated the emergency observation more than hundred times in 2015. Not only the most important event in 2015, the Mw 7.8 Gorkha earthquake on April 25, the Phased Array type L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar-2 (PALSAR-2) aboard ALOS-2 observed various floods, volcano eruptions and earthquakes. In this paper, we present some emergency observation results which were impossible to be performed by the previous ALOS. That is, automatically burst aligned ScanSAR to ScanSAR interferometry and, left / right looking for increasing acquisition opportunity.
