China successfully launched a geostationary meteorological satellite, Fengyun-2H,

China successfully launched a geostationary meteorological satellite, Fengyun-2H, at Xichang Satellite Launch Center at 9:07 p.m. Beijing time on June 5.

The Fengyun-2H satellite, the final one in the Fengyun-II series of spin-stabilized weather satellites, will be able to collect more meteorological, maritime, and hydrological data.

This satellite, equipped with a Stretched Visible and Infrared Spin Scan Radiometer (S-VISSR) for a vivid weather satellite imagery, is *designed to provide weather services like accurate weather forecasting for countries that are part of the Belt and Road Initiative*, as well as the western part of China.

The instrument will be responsible for determining the atmospheric temperature, cloud type, precipitation rate at the surface, sea surface temperature, ocean imagery, land surface temperature, vegetation type and land surface imagery. 

Equipped with a scanning radiometer and space environment monitor, Fengyun-2H will provide real-time cloud and water vapor images and space weather information to clients in the Asia-Pacific region, said Wei Caiying, chief commander of the ground application system of Fengyun-2H and deputy director of the National Satellite Meteorological Center.

Meteorological satellites play a crucial role in preventing and mitigating disasters, monitoring certain kinds of disasters including typhoons, rainstorm, sandstorm, and thunderstorm, and are widely used in the fields of oceanography, agriculture, forestry, hydrology, aviation, navigation and environmental protection.

China has freely shared data from its Fengyun weather satellites with international users. There are about 20 countries – including Australia, New Zealand – that are now using and benefiting from the services and materials provided by Fengyun-II satellites.

China’s Fengyun IV satellite, which was launched in December 2016, became operational on May 1, 2018, offering services to over 80 countries and regions, providing satellites materials and products for 2,500 domestic users.

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
