Chinese scientists have used a drone-enabled Internet of Things (IoT) relay system to achieve real-time environmental monitoring in remote areas where mobile networks are insufficient. The system was developed by the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research under the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Chinese researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences have designed an improved remote sensing method for more efficient landslide monitoring. They demonstrated that the SAR remote sensing plays an important role in global landslide monitoring, especially when ground live data are insufficient.
Researchers from China and the United States released the result of a joint study showing China's oldest forest dates back to 371 million years ago. The ancient forest was in Tacheng Prefecture, northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, said Professor Xu Honghe of Nanjing Institute of Geology and Palaeontology of Chinese Academy of Sciences, the leader of the research.
Designers have begun to develop an upgraded version of the Long March 11 carrier rocket called the Long March 11A, which they said will be wider and taller than the current model and have greater thrust. A Long March 11 was launched from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in Sichuan province for the first time on Saturday, sending two technology demonstration satellites into orbit.
Chinese scientists from the National Space Science Center of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have proposed a new solution to defend Earth from asteroid strikes. The new technique is not constrained by the limitation of ground-based launch for artificial impactor, promising to significantly increase the effect of planetary defense against large asteroids.
The researchers from Lanzhou University, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Nantong University hoped to study the pattern and range of the East Asian summer monsoon change in a longer time scale and predict the precipitation inside the transition zone. They conducted a systematical geomorphologic survey along a closed-basin lake located on the southern Mongolia plateau and reconstructed the precipitation quantity in the recent 12,000 years of the lake.
