FENGYUN 3C is the third in China's second-generation series of polar-orbiting weather satellites. Its launch came after nearly identical satellites were put in orbit in 2008 and 2010. FENGYUN 3C will make global three-dimensional measurements of Earth's atmosphere, returning data on cloud cover, temperatures, moisture, snow and ice cover, rainfall, ozone, and the sun's influence on the climate, according to a website maintained by the China Meteorological Administration. Observations from the satellite will feed data parameters into numerical medium-range computer models, monitor climate changes, supply information for Chinese military weather forecasts, and help officials respond to natural disasters, the website said.
