Paper Abstract

The first Chinese Ocean Color Satellite (HaiYang-1) will be launched in 2000. The spacecraft will move and operate in a near sun-synchronous and near-polar orbit at altitude of 798 km. Installed on the satellite there are two sensors: one being 10 bands ocean color and temperature scanner with the spatial resolution of 1.1 km, the other being 4 bands CCD coastal zone imager with the spatial resolution of 250 m. The satellite is designed to detect some of the marine environmental parameters of the China Seas. It is believed that the satellite will play an important role in monitoring marine environment and coastal zone, and studying the global environmental changes.
