Abstract : Meteorological satellites have high application effectiveness. To receive data from the polar meteorological satellite (Fenyun 1) and the geostationary satellite (Fenyun 2) of China, as well as from NOAA and GMS satellites, Fenyun 1 and Fenyun 2 meteorological satellite data receiving and processing systems were established at the National Satellite Meteorological Center of the China Meteorological Administration. The article briefly discusses and comments on the developmental process, present status, and future development trends of these two major systems, as well as other ground application systems of meteorological satellites in China.
