From the viewpoint of environmental remote-sensing applications, this article explains the overall technical characteristics of the Chinese HJ-1A and HJ-1B satellites. It also investigates the spectral characteristics and potential applications of charge-coupled devices, and the infrared and hyperspectral data obtained by the satellites. Examples of applications, such as the remote-sensing monitoring of algal bloom in Taihu Lake, straw burning in southern China, and aerosol optical depth in the area around Bohai sea are presented. These examples illustrate the application characteristics of the HJ-1A and HJ-1B satellite data.
