Research Achievement of Qinghai-Tibet Railway Published in NatureChina

Recently, NatureChina reviewed and recommended research result on cooling mechanism of coarse rock layer achieved by Cheng Guodong, Member of CAS, Lai Yuanming, Research Fellow and other researchers such as Sun Zhizhong, Jiang Fan from the Cold and Arid Regions Environmental and Engineering Research Institute, CAS, with numerical simulation, in-room experiment and on-spot experiment. The research result was published recently on Permafrost and Periglacial Processes (Volume 18, Issue 2, Pages 151 ¨C 160). The researchers compared the coarse rock layer to a thermo semi-conductor of multi-year frozen earth, and concluded that the coarse rock layer can be used as a reinforced measure to cope with the global warming effect and enhance stability of embankment.
