BEIJING -- Chinese researchers have completed an in-situ detection experiment on near-space atmospheric turbulence in Northwest China's Qinghai province and Southwest China's Tibet autonomous region, according to Science and Technology Daily on Wednesday.

The energy and mass exchange and the pollutants transport and diffusion in the atmosphere are closely related to atmospheric turbulence.

The flight experiment lasted 13 hours and eight minutes, with a maximum altitude of 21,625 meters, said the newspaper. The researchers received the completed data record.

Developed by the Anhui Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the atmospheric turbulence in-situ detection device is used to study the influence of near space atmospheric thermal turbulence on mass exchange.
