China has launched two sets of deep-sea subsurface moorings in Antarctic waters in an effort to monitor seawater over the long term in a high-tech engineering move that a Chinese expert said would better protect the region.

The deep-sea subsurface mooring sets were launched by the xiangyanghong01, a ship belonging to the first institute of oceanography at the State Oceanic Administration.
When the deep-sea subsurface mooring set is retrieved, research fellows can acquire data about the ocean current, temperature and salinity over a long period of time,".
