China's Jiaolong submersible sets for Pacific voyage

搭载我国“蛟龙”号载人潜水器的“向阳红09”船4日从福建福州起航,奔赴西北太平洋中国大洋协会富钴结壳勘探区执行2014至2015年试验性应用航次(中国大洋第35航次)第一航段科考任务。

“蛟龙”号载人潜水器在2012年6月进行的7000米级海试中成功到达7062米海底,标志着我国具备到达全球99.8%的海底开展作业的能力。2013年,“蛟龙”号从海上试验转入试验性应用,开始执行海洋科学考察任务。

据介绍,“蛟龙”号今年的航次将在麦哲伦海山区中部的采薇海山区域开展资源调查、生物多样性和生态环境调查等。同时将进一步培养操作维护人员和潜航员,优化潜水器作业规程,推动“蛟龙”号实现业务化运行。此外,“蛟龙”号携带的“龙珠”号小型缆控机器人等多种新设备也将在本航次中亮相。

来自国家海洋局第一、第二、第三海洋研究所,广州海洋地质调查局、长沙矿冶研究院、上海交通大学等多个科研单位的科学家将参加本航次任务。航次中还将开展2014年南京青奥会火炬水下传递,来自北京汇文第一小学的老师也将参加航次,为在青少年中开展海洋科普教育创造条件。

“蛟龙”号2014至2015年试验性应用航次计划共三个航段约160天。在西北太平洋的第一航段科考任务之后,“蛟龙”号计划于年底适宜季节赴西南印度洋中国大洋协会多金属硫化物资源勘探区开展第二、第三航段作业。

Jiaolong, China's first manned deep-sea submersible, on Friday embarked on a scientific expedition in the Pacific Ocean.
Its carrier, Xiangyanghong 09, set sail from Fuzhou, capital of east China's Fujian Province, for the submersible's first expedition mission in the 2014-2015 period.

It is scheduled for a voyage in the northwest Pacific Ocean, during which it will research cobalt-rich crusts and life forms inhabiting the bottom of the sea.

The expedition is also part of China's efforts to perform its obligations in its contract with the International Seabed Authority, said Liu Feng, on-scene commander of the mission.

An underwater "digital torch relay" for the Nanjing 2014 Summer Youth Olympic Games will be carried out during the voyage, according to Liu.

The flame was passed on via an application to a mobile phone of a pilot and will be displayed from the bottom of the ocean to the public, Liu said.

A micro-sized remotely operated underwater vehicle called "Longzhu", or "Dragon Ball", will also be carried by Jiaolong for the mission.

Longzhu will be used to photograph the submersible underwater and carry out operations in narrow areas, Liu said.

Crew members also include several scientists as well as a primary school teacher who is on an assignment to promote science among students and schools.

After the voyage, Jiaolong is scheduled for another mission starting later this year in the southwest Indian Ocean to carry out scientific research on polymetallic sulfides.

The sub, named after a mythical dragon, reached 7,062 meters in the Pacific's Mariana Trench in a dive in June 2012.(新华网)
