Scientists Use Space Technology to Explore Deep Sea

Friday, March 24, 2006
Chinese and American scientists recently have found a new measure to explore deep sea by using space technology. With the help of space satellite, scientists have developed a new method that is similar to the X-rays. By applying this new technology, they have successfully detected Mediterranean Sea eddies 800 meters deep into the water. The success of the project created a precedent for exploring deep sea from the space. This latest breakthrough was announced at the press conference jointly held by US NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), American Meteorological Society, University of Delaware, and Ocean University of China on March 21. The project was led by Yan, Xiaohai, visiting professor of Ocean University of China and co-director of Center for Remote Sensing of University of Delaware. (Source: People’s Daily Online)
