Chinese scientists have discovered that pollen flow can be an indicator of the Asian summer monsoon's intensity and flow direction above the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. The scientists studied a dataset of the surface pollen on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and found that the spatial distribution trend of the exotic tree pollen's relative abundance is highly coupled with the path of the Asian summer monsoon and the extent to which it encroached on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.
Four satellites of the BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) have recently passed tests in orbit and started operation in the network.
