China has achieved a 30-meter-resolution Global Forest Cover Map (GFCM) of 2018 for forest management, according to the Aerospace Information Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences on Wednesday. The researchers constructed a high-resolution forest and non-forest sample database based on satellite remote sensing data. They realized automatic information extraction of global forest cover by using mach...
Chinese researchers have developed a new type of electrolyte to provide stable power cycling retention of batteries, according to the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) on Tuesday. The results suggested the potential of the batteries for high-performance flexible energy storage applications.
China has successfully tested an unmanned sailboat for monitoring marine environment, according to the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The sailboat named Hai'ou, meaning seagull, was developed by the Shenyang Institute of Automation under the CAS. It showed good performance in course control, position keeping and path tracking in the sea trial conducted in the eastern coastal city of Qingdao, Shandong province.
A big Earth data system was launched at the 1st China Digital Earth Conference that opened Monday in Beijing. The system initiated by Chinese scientists can provide global users with uniquely identifiable and standardized big Earth data.
Chinese researchers from the Kunming Institute of Botany of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have disclosed that the plants at mid-elevations on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau are more likely to be spiny, according to a recent study paper published in the Journal of Biogeography.
Scientists have developed denture composites that can coexist harmoniously with human teeth by combining exceptional elasticity and hardness. The available synthetic dental materials in zirconia ceramics have a hardness that is 20 times higher than human tooth dentin and accelerate the abrasion of the neighboring and opposite tooth. They generally demonstrate relatively poor damage tolerance.
