Storyline


The Great Wall Station, built in 1985, is China's first research base in Antarctica. It is located near a nature reserve where groups of penguins and seals are often frequented.

The station is made up of 12 massive buildings, covering 4,082 square meters, including an office, a dormitory, meteorological center, scientific research building and power house.

The research building is where some biological and chemical researches are done, communications and base stations for China's Beidou satellite navigation system are built and meteorological forecast is transmitted.

A medical room had been set up at the station and is manned by one doctor. Medical supplies are delivered there from home every year.

Members of China's 36th Antarctic expedition aboard China's polar icebreaker Xuelong 2, or Snow Dragon 2, started unloading supplies to the station recently.

Hu Miao, the doctor of the expedition team, said they have been busy unloading medical supplies recently. He said medical conditions have improved at the station and he could do simple surgeries like appendectomy.

The white building is a greenhouse, where such vegetables as lettuces, cucumbers, and eggplants are growing soil-free.

In order to protect the Antarctic environment, the Great Wall Station has implemented waste sorting and there was an incinerator for burning the waste.

"The Great Wall Station is one of the first research stations that implement waste sorting. For paper, we have our own waste incineration building to burn it and bring back the ash to China for disposal. For plastic, metal, and glass, we sort them on the spot, load them into containers, and then take home for processing," said Ding Haitao, head of the Great Wall Station.

The Great Wall Station is one of the five Chinese research bases in Antarctica and opened on Feb. 20, 1985. The station is located at 62° 12' 59'' south latitude and sited on ice-free rock, about 10 meters above the sea level.
