Seabed survey may help predict tsunamis

The China Geological Survey has completed a scientific survey of the southwest basin of the South China Sea, the Chinese Academy of Sciences announced on 3 August.

The project ran from 13 June to 31 July and acquired a “high-quality integrative geographic profile” of the basin’s 1,000 kilometre survey line, which stretches from the Xisha Islands to the Nansha Islands, according to a CGS statement. This will allow scientists to study the development of tectonic activity in the South China Sea and predict disasters such as earthquakes and tsunamis.
