Chinese Academy of Sciences President BAI Chunli recently awarded the Academician Certification to Guo Huadong (right). Huodong’s recent address, calling for a network of global change satellites, received widespread press coverage.

Prof. Guo Huadong, dean of the Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth with the Chinese Academy of Sciences, recently called for a constellation of six Earth observation satellites to monitor global change. This vision was part of a talk given at the Asia-Pacific Remote Sensing Symposium in Beijing. Huadong also called for an Earth observation capacity based on the moon.

In addition to his duties with the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Huadong is also the secretary general of the International Society for Digital Earth (ISDE) and editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Digital Earth (IJDE). He has played a leading role in radar remote sensing research and applications in China and internationally. 

Global change is a growing area of research that incorporates monitoring and analysis of land cover, oceans, atmosphere, deep Earth processes and human society. The field spun off of climate change research, where it was realized that broader change mechanisms are occurring and are little understood.

Huadong didn't provide details on the responsibility or mandate for these global satellites. This call for a far-forward vision of Earth observation to monitor and research global change from a pre-eminent Chinese scholar puts more weight and impetus on the global Earth observation mission.
