In a virtual signing ceremony held on November 29, 2023, Prof. WU Yirong, Director-General of the Aerospace Information Research Institute (AIR) under the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), inked a Memorandum of Understanding with Salvatore Aricò, Chief Executive Officer of the International Science Council (ISC), marking the commencement of International Program Office (IPO) for the Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (IRDR) Program which has stepped into the second phase.View More
Researchers led by Dany Azar from the Nanjing Institute of Geology and Paleontology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Lebanese University have found the earliest known fossil mosquitoes ever discovered—in Lower Cretaceous amber from Lebanon. The well-preserved insects are two males of the same species with piercing mouthparts, suggesting they likely sucked blood.
A research team led by Prof. WANG Puyu from the Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources has investigated cryosphere changes and their impacts on regional water resources in Chinese Altai Mountains from 2000 to 2021, based on the latest multi-source data, such as remote sensing, ground stationary observations, and route surveys.
Researchers led by Prof. XUE Yongbiao from the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology (IGDB) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have found that S-RNases form membranelless puncta structures, called S-RNase condensates (SRCs), by phase separation in the cytoplasm of self- but not non-self-pollen tubes in <em>Petunia hybrida</em>. Further transgenic experiments showed that SRCs are required for the self-incompatibility response.
Researchers from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics predicted that regions in the mid-low latitudes of Eurasia and most parts of the Americas are likely to experience an exceptionally warm winter. There's a 95% chance that the global average surface temperature for the winter of 2023/24 will set a new historical record.
As a scientist of physical geography and environmental change, Chen Fahu has conducted in-depth research on the environment in Asia, especially the Qinghai-Xizang Plateau. The Association for Trans-Eurasia Exchange and Silk-Road Civilization Development he founded is a platform for scientific exchanges among experts from various countries. In an interview with CGTN's Li Dongning, Chen Fahu talked about environmental protection and communication between scientists.
Chinese scientists have found that orchid mantises, hailed as a classic example of flower mimicry, use their petal-shaped legs for gliding.
Scientists from the Chinese Academy of Sciences have identified a new eutherian mammal, which marks the first time that Chinese scientists have revealed the middle ear structure of a eutherian mammal from 120 million years ago, filling a gap in research on middle ear evolution in the early Cretaceous era.
China's Large High Altitude Air Shower Observatory (LHAASO), a high-altitude cosmic ray observatory, has released the precise energy spectrum for the highest-energy gamma-ray radiation from the brightest gamma-ray burst (GRB) observed to date.
