Akatsuki/IR1 :1 micron camera (IR1), on board Akatsuki, by utilizing the wavelength bands around 1 micron, which allows for seeing below clouds and near the surface of Venus, and by comparing infrared intensities of different bands, it allows to investigate the movement of clouds in the lower atmosphere, the distribution of water vapor, the mineral composition of the surface, and can check for the presence of active volcanoes.
