Short summary
A more than 6-year data set has been acquired by TANSO-FTS onboard GOSAT. This paper provides updates on the performance and describes important changes to the data product for the typical accuracy of retrieved CO2 and CH4 of 2 ppm and 13 ppb, respectively. The V201 Level 1B have long-term uniform quality and provide consistent retrieval accuracy even after the three anomalies of the satellite system. In addition, we discuss the unique observation abilities by an agile pointing mechanism.
