The first light images from the ADEOS-II (Midori-II) / GLI were obtained on January 25, 2003 successfully. The GLI is a cross tracking imager with 36 channels covering a wide spectral region from 380 nm to 12 μm. Six 250m channels and tilting ocean view mechanism are also unique features of the GLI. Obtained radiance images are now being analyzed at NASDA EORC to produce the level 2 geophysical products. This paper overviews some standard and new products and their implications for local and global researches. It is important to compare the satellite-derived results with model simulation results. We compared the MODIS result with cloud microphysical simulation with the NHM+HUCM model and found a similar distribution of cloud effective radii.
