BEIJING, June 10 (Xinhua) -- The following is a summary of published science and technology news of China.


Chinese researchers have made progress in revealing permafrost dynamics and climate impacts in alpine grasslands on the Qinghai-Xizang Plateau, according to the Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources (NIEER) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

This study, led by NIEER researcher Wu Qingbai, provides a new perspective for understanding the response mechanisms of different types of alpine grassland ecosystems.


A Chinese museum has released a digital replica of a set of wine vessels dating back 2,400 years, once deemed too complicated to replicate.

The 3D digital version of Marquis Yi of Zeng's Zun and Basin was featured in a video clip released by the Hubei Provincial Museum in Wuhan, central China's Hubei Province.

The original bronze ware, dating back to the Warring States Period (475-221 BC), consists of a zun and a pan. A zun was used to contain wine, while a pan held water to either warm or cool the wine. The zun and the pan were each soldered with dozens of accessories, including hollowed-out decorations of intertwined dragons and snakes.


Chinese researchers have discovered a new fungus species, Cystoderma yongpingense, in Yongping County of Dali Bai Autonomous Prefecture in southwest China's Yunnan Province.

The findings, published in the academic journal Mycoscience, have revealed that the species' pileus is wrinkled with a persistent annulus that is membranous and floccose-scaly, and its color ranges from light orange-red to orange-red.

The new species was collected in August 2022 by a research team from the Kunming Edible Fungi Research Institute during a field survey in Baotaishan national forest park.


The first cylindrical floating oil-gas production, storage and offloading (FPSO) facility in Asia, named "Haikui No. 1", has been successfully installed at sea, its owner China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) announced on Monday.

This achievement marks a significant breakthrough for China in installing floating facilities in deepwater oil and gas fields, according to CNOOC, the largest offshore oil and gas producer in China.

"Haikui No. 1" is a self-developed cylindrical FPSO facility from China. It is installed in the sea area of the Liuhua Oilfield in the Pearl River Mouth Basin, located more than 320 meters deep and about 240 kilometers southeast of Shenzhen. Enditem
