The AMSR sensor team was organized through research announcements in three categories: retrieval algorithm development, calibration and validation, and Earth science. The team activity covers both ADEOS-II/AMSR and Aqua/AMSR-E. Workshops are being held periodically for discussion and information exchange. Since the Aqua/AMSR-E is a joint program with NASA, a joint NASA-JAXA AMSR science team was formed to promote and coordinate AMSR scientific activities. This team consists of NASA AMSR-E science team members and the AMSR sensor team core members.
Inside JAXA, the project is promoted through cooperation among related departments such as general planning, sensor development, ground system development, and research and analysis.
