In order to promote the Chinese Institute of remote sensing and Digital Earth Research Institute and the Boston University (Boston University, referred to as BU) exchanges and cooperation, and strengthen Sino US cooperation in science and technology in remote sensing technology, the Boston University researcher Cao Chunxiang Ranga B. should be invited by Professor Myneni, from August 3, 2015 to August 12th in the United States of Boston launched a scientific visit. During the visit, Cao Chunxiang, on behalf of the State Key Laboratory of Remote Sensing Science and environmental health remote sensing research with the United States team carried out a total of 2 academic conference, and interact with the backbone of the team of researchers study for remote sensing of the earth back to the United States including "Earth Science and technology application: the country for the next ten years and after a longer period of time." the most urgent task of new progress, the new polarization sensor satellite sixth MODIS data, product development and academic cooperation programs including a number of results of the visit.

The visit for a period of 10 days, a total of five visits into goal: (1) the production and validation of technical exchanges and discuss the global forestry and ecological environment remote sensing products; (2) to explore the earth and environment, Boston University in the dynamic monitoring of the vegetation in the field of global climate change and the latest research progress; (3) promoting the dynamic monitoring of the vegetation and the Boston University in the field of global climate change and cooperation; (4) to promote the development of environmental health diagnosis, remote sensing; (5) the common Planning Institute and Boston University Department of geography and environment in the future can be carried out in cooperation; (6) promote the Institute and Boston University in personnel training cooperation.
Through the process of communication and academic seminars and the Boston University research team, Professor Cao Chunxiang studied Earth Science and technology application in the United States: "the future of the country ten years later and urgent task" longer reports and current results, and discusses the development trend of remote sensing science basic research suggestions and opinions with Professor Myneni B. Ranga. Application of "Earth Science and technology: the future of the country ten years later and urgent task" longer report by the National Research Council (NRC) released in 2004, NRC (NASA) by NASA Earth Science office, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) of the Commission, the NASA research project and NOAA and USGS business application, the special research of the method of system space observation results, announced in early 2007, is vital to the future development of the space environment report observation. The report is divided into three parts, namely comprehensive strategy, space science and Applied Earth Mission overview and in the next ten years research and Application Research Report, a comprehensive exposition of the U. S. space environment observation achievements, status and challenges. The report highlights the importance of space observations for weather, climate variability and change, water resources, and global hydrological cycle and human health and safety. According to report when the United States Satellite Service Status pointed out that after 2010 service satellite will greatly reduce the crisis, and that the NASA and NOAA on the existing and previously planned satellite projects provide long-term support, and based on the completion of the current scientific research task formulated a series of different scale tasks.
At present, a new ten year plan has been executed more than half, NASA, NOAA and USGS and other departments have made remarkable progress in the research report, including the latest emission with polarization sensor remote sensing satellite, the satellite data will provide new data for the inversion of vegetation leaf biochemical parameters, and will vigorously promote the development of scientific research in this field. China and the United States on the application prospects of this new sensor has been intense discussions and exchanges, and the development of relevant research programs.
Boston University research team to the Chinese representatives to show the latest important research results, including the upcoming release of MODIS sixth (MODIS LEVEL 5) data products. The product is based on the application of fifth kinds of data products to develop a variety of application models, with more practical and promotion, is to promote the application of Remote Sensing Science and technology for social applications another important measure. Cao Chunxiang researcher on behalf of the Chinese Academy of remote sensing earth for the application of the series of data products and production principles and the u.s..
Cao Chunxiang, researcher at the Boston University research team based on the latest research, put forward to the United States to continue past scientific research cooperation intention, the two sides formulated a detailed plan of academic cooperation in the next few years. This plan includes two sides will cooperate to deliver a major academic thesis, this thesis entitled "large-scale forest canopy height model scale and water metabolism principle based on energy balance equation, the main research contents for the scale and water metabolism principle of energy balance equation to construct a new model of" Allometric Scaling and Resource Limitations (ASRL), based on the realization of "large scale forest tree height inversion. The results of this study will have an important impact on the global forest ecosystem and global climate change.
10 day trip through the exchange, not only to achieve the development of the researcher Cao Chunxiang academic exchange target, brought important scientific information of Boston University research team, and consolidate the Chinese Institute of remote sensing and Digital Earth Research Institute and the Boston University in the United States exchanges and cooperation, promote the further development of environmental health diagnosis, remote sensing, is but one of the academic exchanges and fruitful enrich China Academy of foreign exchange visit.
