China has received data from its newly launched terrestrial ecosystem carbon monitoring satellite, according to the scientists in charge of receiving the satellite data.

The satellite was carried into space on August 4 by a Long March-4B rocket from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in north China’s Shanxi Province.

Since the night of August 4, ground stations located in Beijing and Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region have tracked and received the data from the satellite in three tasks, which lasted 25 minutes with a total size of 306 GB, said the Aerospace Information Research Institute under the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Tasked with obtaining information on forest carbon sinks, the satellite will boost China’s carbon peaking and neutrality efforts, offering support and services in fields such as forestry, grasslands and the ecological environment.
