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.
Being awarded as a CAS-PIFI was a great honor and I was very excited for having the chance and opportunity to work in China in an excellent, high-qualified scientific atmosphere. This award provided a great opportunity for me to extend my scientific work in a broader topic and exchange my experience and expertise with colleagues of the Institute of Subtropical Agriculture of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
When I look back, I sum up my experience during the lockdown as ‘roller coaster of emotions’ as homesickness, an increasing number of cases, then a decreasing number of deaths and suspected cases, a possible cure for COVID-19, caring gestures from the community, and finally motivational words from teachers, family and friends caused multiple mood swings within a day.
This fall marks 11 years that I have been living in China and working at the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). I have always loved China, being half Chinese and growing up fascinated with the culture of my mother and grandparents.
