According to a study led by Prof. PIAO Shilong from the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research, the Third Pole has seen an increase in vegetation over the past three decades. This phenomenon, also known as "greening", may help slow rapid local warming
Thermoelectric material is one kind of functional materials which can directly convert heat into electricity. Understanding the factors that affect the thermal conductivity is a topic of great scientific interest, which will guide to reduce the lattice thermal conductivity or search materials with low lattice thermal conductivity. Recently, researchers from Institute of Solid State Physics, Hefei Institutes of Physical Science, constructed two concise parameters in characterization of thermal conductivity of half-Heusler compounds.
Researchers from the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology proposed a continuous estimation method for six daily grasp movements by Long Short-term Memory Network (LSTM). Test results showed that LSTM performed better than the other two algorithms.
A new study by researchers from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics investigated the quality of mechanical bathythermograph (MBT) data and revealed significant systematic errors in MBT data.
China successfully sent a group of new remote sensing satellites into orbit from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwest China's Sichuan Province on Tuesday. Belonging to the Yaogan-30 family, this group of satellites was launched by a Long March-2C carrier rocket at 11:43 a.m. (Beijing Time). The satellites have entered the planned orbits.
Beginning in late March, some residents in South Korea have received such calls not from human beings, but from an artificial intelligence-enabled system.
Chinese scientists have for the first time systematically measured the depth of the seven major lakes in Hoh Xil, Qinghai Province, the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research under the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It would provide a data base for the research of regional water resource utilization and sustainable development.
Chinese researchers have disclosed that soil water content is improved when the plant species community composition is increased. The research is expected to be helpful for selecting suitable plant species by keeping the management of agriculture and forestry balanced.
