Our High Resolution Picture Transmission (HRPT) station was installed and
became operational on November 21, 1994 for the reception of the
SEA-viewing WIde Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS)
ocean color data and Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR)
transmissions from the NOAA
polar orbiting satellites.
At the present time, we are compiling and processing these satellite
data to study the meteorology and the marine water quality of Hong
Kong and along the Chinese coast focusing on the South China Sea.
