Welcome to the HKUST HRPT Satellite Ground Station

Institute for the Environment

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

Our High Resolution Picture Transmission (HRPT) station was installed and became operational on November 21, 1994 for the reception of the SEA-viewing WIde Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) ocean color data and Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) transmissions from the NOAA polar orbiting satellites.

At the present time, we are compiling and processing these satellite data to study the meteorology and the marine water quality of Hong Kong and along the Chinese coast focusing on the South China Sea.
