An observation and research station under the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) has been working for nearly two decades on the north slope of Mt. Qomolangma, the world's highest peak.
Professor Wu Guangjian and his team from the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research under the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) are among the 13 research teams studying the Mt. Qomolangma region since late April. How do they work?
A Chinese expedition team on Tuesday reached the summit of Mount Qomolangma, the world's highest peak, where they carried out scientific research. The feat came almost 70 years after man's first successful expedition to the top of the world, when New Zealander Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay from Nepal summited Mt. Qomolangma from the south ridge on May 29, 1953.
A team of Chinese paleontologists have collected modern sporopollen samples at high-altitude areas in the Mount Qomolangma region in southwest China's Xizang Autonomous Region. The collection of samples is aimed at helping researchers map out the distribution of plants in different environments and reveal the ecological characteristics in ancient times.
At an altitude of 5,200 meters, the Mt. Qomolangma mountaineering base camp in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region has seen numerous departures of climbers who want to attain the world's highest peak. The recent one is of a group of Chinese scientific researchers.
Chinese scientists used drones to collect atmospheric samples at different heights of Mount Qomolangma for the first time as part of the recent scientific expedition on the world's highest peak.
