China has successfully launched three new satellites into space, one of which will monitor carbon in terrestrial ecosystems. Xinhua reported this on Thursday, August 4.
It is noted that the launch of the spacecraft was carried out from the Taiyuan Cosmodrome in Shanxi Province in northern China using the Changzheng-4B launch vehicle. This launch was the 430th in a row for Long March series launch vehicles.
Carbon monitoring satellites are mainly used for carbon monitoring in terrestrial ecosystems, research and monitoring of ecology and earth’s resources, and monitoring and evaluation of large national environmental projects.
