Prof. Huadong Guo from Academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth (RADI) will give a presentation entitled "Recent Progress in Space-borne and Moon-based Earth Observation" 

Abstract: China’s Earth observation technologies and applications have made a lot of progress in recent years. First, four remote sensing satellite series have been developed including meteorological satellites, resource satellites, environmental satellites, and ocean satellites. Second, a high-resolution Earth observation system has been launched containing seven optical and microwave satellites. Third, the Shenzhou spacecraft and Tiangong space labs are serving as a new type of Earth observation platform. Earth observation data have been applied at global, regional and national levels across different fields. Furthermore, the scientific concept of Moon-based Earth observation is being studied for the purpose of understanding and exploring large-scale geoscience phenomena.
