GAOFEN-5 is a Chinese Earth-observing satellite designed to survey global land and water resources, air pollutants, greenhouse gases and other environmental parameters. With a planned eight-year mission, GAOFEN-5 is the next in a line of Chinese Earth-observing satellites built for civilian applications. It carries a hyperspectral imaging instrument designed with sensitivity to detect variations in land cover and water clarity, plus payloads that will track air pollution and greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Chinese scientists and engineers installed six instruments on GAOFEN-5, making it one of the country's most capable and versatile Earth-observing satellites.
