agency Zhongshan Station on 23 December (Reporter Ruan Yulin) wind, temperature, snow hill, ice cracks, with hard snow, blowing snow, the Chinese 28th Antarctic expedition Inland team experienced in recent days of heavy weather and road test, drag the 200 tons of material, has been advancing the Antarctic inland 478 km.
12 16, 28 of China’s first inland Antarctic expedition team eight snowmobiles, dragging loaded with fuel, construction materials, logistics and expedition sled 33, 200 tons of supplies from starting near the Zhongshan Station, rushed to the highest point of the Antarctic Dome A. As the vehicle breakdown, 18, on his way inland persistence in a team car and four snow sled.
19 afternoon, the Chinese 28th Antarctic expedition team seven inland snow tractors set of 29 expedition sled supplies and equipment to continue to work towards inland. Because each snowmobile drag all expedition carrying three to four tons of supplies and logistical support, even in hard snow surface of the road is very difficult.
current team snowmobile inland to around 12-13 km per hour speed of a difficult road to the Kunlun station. As the snow mound on the road pavement, ice ridges and other continuous, players sit in the snow car also suffered a swing violently and bumps.
team party branch secretary of the Kunlun Station, chief mechanic Cuipeng Hui is the sixth into the Antarctic interior, along the road of clear in mind. “After the departure from the starting base for the first 100 kilometers, the ice cracks more; 400-600 km is the ice cracks ,900-1000 km area of ??ice fractured region is due to changes in the ice cracks in the region each year will be different.” Cui Peng Hui said.
vehicles are the lifeblood of inland teams, if not the vehicle to protect the Antarctic inland expedition does not arise. “Cuipeng Hui said the successful completion of the inland expedition, the first time mechanic on the interior of the vehicles to conduct a careful maintenance, the arduous task of inland study will appear in a variety of difficulties to overcome on the road eventually arrived safely Kunlun Station.
Chinese 28th Antarctic expedition team is expected inland Kunlun Station arrived in early January. Upon arrival, China’s first inland expedition team will play 28 deep ice core drilling site for construction, installation of self-developed China’s first Antarctic Survey Telescope, and the Kunlun station building two integrated steel infrastructure and the garage is expected to be inland Team February 2, 2012 left the Kunlun Station, and on February 20 return to Zhongshan Station.
