Remote-sensing Surveillance on Storage Capacity of Three-Gorges Reservoir in Yangtze River
Since June 10, 2003, the water level of Three-Gorges
reservoir has reached 135 meters. On June 13, 2003, the Institute of Remote
Sensing Application Research tested the status both before and after water
storage through comparative analysis with image before water storage by
using Modis remote sensing satellite image.
The water area has not been expanded too much
after reaching 135-meter water level because of the sheer precipice along
the banks of the river. Generally speaking, the reservoir is 50 to 100
m in width, and in some water areas, it is 200 to 500 m in width.
Anti-SARSDNA Vaccine Successfully
The establishment and effect of the Anti-SARSDNA
vaccine developed by Prof. Jinggeng PENG, from the Institute of Zoology,
have made crucial progress. The news was released from the Symposium and
Exchange on SARS hosted by the Institute of Zoology, CAS on June 29. China
has successfully and firstly established and expressed 8 Anti-SARSDNA
This vaccine is safe, effective, low-cost
with simple purification process. Since its founding in 1990, it has been
widely used in the protection of AIDS and tumors. After the evaluation
of enzyme clips and DNA sequencing, the targeted genome DNA is proved
to be correct.
"R/V Science No.1" Consummation of the Scientific Inspection
After successfully fulfilling the scientific
task on "General Circulation in the Yellow and East China Seas and
Its Interaction with the Yangtze River Diluted Water", "R/V
Science No.1 " of CAS Institute of Oceanology returned back to Qingdao
on July 20, 2003. The data acquired in the Inspection are now under analyzing
so that the circulation structure of the Yellow Sea Cold Water Mass in
Summer could be fully understood.
Research Center of Natural Gas-water
Compound was Established
The Guangzhou Institute of Energy of CAS conducted
a disciplinary adjustment in time and established, recently, a Natural
Gas-Water Compound Research Center.
