China Launches Deep-sea Subsurface Moorings in Antarctic Waters[Feb 14, 2018]

China has launched two sets of deep-sea subsurface moorings in Antarctic waters in an effort to monitor seawater over the long term in a high-tech engineering move. They contain a main floating body, cables, a sea current meter, conductivity-temperature-depth system and a release. The data, especially recordings made under extreme weather conditions, is of great research value and scientific significance.

China's Basic Science Research Funding Doubles in 5 Years[Feb 12, 2018]

China's financial input in R&D of basic sciences doubled in the past five years from 41.2 billion yuan (about 6.5 billion U.S. dollars) in 2011 to 82.3 billion yuan in 2016. The percentage of funding for basic science R&D in the central government's total financial input in science and technology has reached the level of developed countries.
