It is informed that aerosol product provided by FY-4A meteorological satellite has been incorporated into environmental meteorological prediction procedures. Meanwhile, the latest satellite data of China will find wider application in environmental meteorological operation.

Recently, National Meteorological Center (NMC) and National Satellite Meteorological Center (NSMC) has conducted work like system and software adjustment, and prediction procedures optimation of FY-4A.

Besides, modern human-computer interactive meteorological information processing and weather prediction formulation system substantially used by forecasters is coupled with FY-4A products. Forecasters can directly derive and analyze FY-4A products in their prediciton assessment operation.

Fully leveraging FY-4A products can provide more data reference for environmental meteorological operation, especially instrumental for deeper analysis and enhanced forecasting capabilities of heavy air pollution impact and occurence conditions as well as environmental meteorological assessment services.
