A team of more than 300 began China’s 34th Antarctic expedition last Wednesday, including four from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC).
The team will make the 164-day trip of 37,000 nautical miles. It will sail to the west coast of the Ross Sea, where researchers will conduct preliminary work on China’s fifth station in the Antarctic.
Meanwhile, the team will designate a reserve for penguins around the station. Gao Yuesong, a doctoral student of the Institute of Polar Environment of the university, will work as a member of the field survey team of the reserve.
The institute, based in Hefei, capital of East China’s Anhui province, has sent more than 50 researchers on China’s Arctic and Antarctic expeditions over the past two decades.
