In this paper, the status and prospect of remote sensing technique of meteorological satellite have been described. The condition of remote sensing imformation from meteorological satellite in next decade has been predicated. By the development of meteorological satellite technique and the improvement of imformation treatment capability, the research of some branchs of meteorology would be urged forward, for example, weather forecasting,climate and long range weather forecasting,atmospheric exploration (include clouds and rain), atmospheric pollution, marine environment and snow-ice. Meteorological satellite remote sensing supplys a demand of comprehensive survey of earth environment, in this paper, this item has been discussed also. The last, we make an overview of the satellite meteorology activity in China.
