BEIJING - China has launched a project to build a platform of collaborative research on the Arctic environment using remote sensing and numerical models, according to the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) Thursday.

The project, led by the Aerospace Information Research Institute of CAS, is aimed at stably and efficiently obtaining and processing observation data recorded by satellites and field stations.

The online cloud platform will provide open access to ice, ocean, land and atmosphere data concerning Arctic science and research, said Professor Li Xiaoming with the Aerospace Information Research Institute.

A numerical model works by predicting atmosphere and ocean conditions based on complex mathematical calculations, introduced by Li.
