BEIJING — A total of 360 observation stations have been established in the China Seismic Experimental Site (CSES) so far, Zheng Guoguang, head of the China Earthquake Administration, said on May 10.

China announced on May 12, 2018 to build the CSES, a natural laboratory in earthquake science and technology, in Sichuan and Yunnan regions.

It aims to facilitate investigator-driven research on continental strong earthquake preparation and occurrence, and enhance the disaster resilience of the society, according to Zheng.

So far, a total of 360 observation stations have been established in the experimental site. Thirteen countries including the United States and Russia have participated in the research.

China will step up the pace of experimental site construction to obtain more underground observation data, and promote data sharing for further research, Zheng said.
