Chinese Climate Monitoring

We've mentioned some of the various satellite systems the United States has launched recently for climate and environmental monitoring, so it's only fair to also take note of similar systems put up by other nations. According to Reuters, China has announced plans to launch three satellites dedicated to monitoring climate change. They will focus in particular on sandstorms and forest/prairie fires.

Unfortunately, the article also notes that the satellites won't be operational until 2012.
