A deep water sediment sampling system has completed a sea trial with a Chinese geophysical survey ship in the South China Sea, according to the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The sediment sampling system can operate at depths of 3,500 meters, while the columnar sediment samples were acquired at a depth of 1,778 meters, with a maximum length of 15.83 meters.
Researchers from the National Astronomical Observatories of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (NAOC) went to an observation station in Barkol Kazakh autonomous county of the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region on Sunday, preparing for China's first attempt to detect the cosmic dawn global spectrum signal, the observatory said.
A Chinese research team in Panzhou City, China’s Guizhou has discovered the Colobodontidae, a stem group of large-sized neopterygians with a durophagous feeding adaption from the Middle to Late Triassic marine ecosystems, which dates back to 244 million years ago. The new finding provides an important addition for the understanding of the morphological and ecological diversity of neopterygian fishes from the Triassic marine ecosystems in South China.
FAST is in southwest China's Guizhou Province. As world's largest filled-aperture and most sensitive radio telescope, it officially opened to the world starting March 31. The opening of China's FAST to international scientists could enhance collaboration of scientists from different countries, said Australian astrophysicist Naomi McClure-Griffiths.
Dr. Dambaru Ballab Kattel is an associate professor at the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research (ITPCAS) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. His work focuses on mountain climate system as well as climate change adaptation for local communities in the Third Pole region. Just recently, Dr. Dambaru Ballab Kattel was invited to participate in the symposium held by Premier Li Keqiang for representatives of foreign experts working in China, before the Spring Festival, or the Chinese New Year.
Over the last five years, I witnessed the growth of China particularly in science and technology. Fully equipped labs and large research funds provided an opportunity to conduct cutting-edge research. I also got the chance to attend international conferences in the field. At my working unit, everyone was welcoming. I was the first CAS-PIFI candidate who joined this institute. Later, many other Asian and European people joined; some completed their work and some are still working.
I am honored to have the CAS President's International Fellowship for Special Experts, which offers unique possibilities for foreign scientists to establish and foster collaboration with their colleagues in Chinese research institutions, and in my particular case it was of central importance for establishing first contacts during short visits to finally realize long-term research collaboration.
