      A research project to monitor the off-shore environment via satellite surveying technology proposed by Dr. ZHOU Xuhua from the CAS Wuhan Institute of Geodesy and Geophysics has recently received the backing of the National High-Tech Research and Development Program (dubbed the "863 Program") in the marine technology section.

    Entitled "Satellite gravity surveying and altimetry technologies for off-shore environmental monitoring," the project will focus on new multi-information methods of studying various geophysical phenomena in China's off-shore areas by combining the new-generation satellite gravity surveying technology with earth observation data such as satellite altimetry. It aims at producing relevant algorithm and software, with independent intellectual properties, to enhance the measurement precision of the gravity field, submarine landforms, sea-level anomalies and average sea-level in targeted regions. The research is expected to effectively enlarge the R&D and application scopes of satellite surveying technologies in China, and to develop a competitive edge against global rivals.
