As an important partner in Arctic research, China has become a member of New Olson science management commission.
At the 2005 Arctic science summit held in Kunming, capital city of south China's Yunnan Province, China has been welcomed by scientists from various countries to join the "united nations" for scientific exploration in North Pole.
Till now Norway, Germany, Britain, France, Japan, Italy and China have established their Arctic exploration stations in the area of New Olson.
The commission holds work conference regularly for experts from different countries to have exchanges on their research and share the field experimental conditions and data and at the same time try to avoid negative impact of their scientific activities on environment.
Nowadays Arctic exploration develops more and more international as Norway's atmosphere observation station has been shared by scientists of different countries. A ocean laboratory to be completed soon will become a platform for internationally joint research on oceanography.
