China to Launch Satellite Data Receiving Station in Arctic

"This could help China to take targeted measures to prevent disasters and conduct relevant research and evaluations."

China is set to launch its first overseas satellite data receiving station in the Arctic, according to CRI.CN.

The station, which is expected to start operation in the next two years, will be established in Sweden and cover information in the Arctic region and Europe.

Experts say the station will enable China to obtain satellite remote sensing data for research on China's environmental conditions, resource distribution, and global climate change.

Qin Qiming, professor at the Institute of Remote Sensing at Peking University, says information gathered from the North Pole station will be used for comparison with China's remote sensing satellite data.
