The sea of death in the corner of Lop Nor reproduces green, breaking the forbidden zone spell – publ-vstart

The "Dead Sea" reproduction of the corner of Lop Nor green, the "forbidden area" spell – breaking public channel in November 10th, through repeated experiments, more than two years of soil improvement, breeding, scientific research personnel of Xinjiang Institute of ecology and geography, Chinese Academy of Sciences, built a 1500 square meters of green landscape in the hinterland of Lop Nor, improve the local environment of the world’s largest production of potassium sulfate base – Lop Nor Xinjiang SDIC potash Co Ltd, Lop Nor broke the "green box". "No birds of the sky, no grass on the ground, the wind blown sand run, when the salt crust barrier." This is the true portrayal of the extremely harsh environment of the "sea of death" in Lop Nor. Here the salt crust thickness of 60 cm, after stripping the salt crust soil is still very poor, and the climate factors on local extreme drought, high temperature, wind and salt dust, making the barren here. In this environment, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Xinjiang Institute of ecology and geography desert engineering survey and Design Institute researchers using a series of saline soil reclamation and vegetation protection measures, the breeding of Elaeagnus angustifolia, Parthenocissus, Tamarix, alfalfa, Ammopiptanthus, pumpkin and other 10 kinds of salt resistance and drought resistant plants in the huge create a touch of green sand. According to the Chinese Academy of Sciences Xinjiang Institute of ecology and geography, engineering survey design desert deputy researcher Sun Yongqiang introduced the greening project not only improved the SDIC Xinjiang Lop Nor potash limited liability company staff of more than 3000 enterprises working and living environment, but also changed the local climate, the base, serving as a model for China’s extreme environment. Lop Nor, the second largest saltwater lake in China, became known as the "forbidden area of life" since the 70s last century. However, in this piece of barren ground, but contains abundant reserves of scarce mineral resources — Potassium salt. With Xinjiang Lop Nor SDIC potash limited liability company and gradually the development of potash resources, it has built the world’s largest potassium sulfate production base, to solve the problem China potash self-sufficiency rate of serious shortage, the "sea of death", and sleeping underground thousands of years to become a "source of wealth".

“死亡之海”罗布泊一隅再现绿色,破“禁区”魔咒-公益频道   11月10日,通过两年多的反复实验、土壤改良、品种选育,中科院新疆生态与地理研究所科研人员在罗布泊腹地建成了1500平方米绿化景观,改善了世界最大的硫酸钾生产基地――国投新疆罗布泊钾盐有限责任公司的局部环境,打破了罗布泊“绿化禁区”的魔咒。   “天上无飞鸟,地上不长草,风吹沙石跑,盐壳当屏障。”这是“死亡之海”罗布泊极端恶劣环境的真实写照。这里盐壳厚度达60厘米,剥离盐壳后的土壤依然十分贫瘠,加上当地极端干旱、高温、多风、多盐尘的气候因素,使得这里寸草不生。   就在这样的环境里,中科院新疆生态与地理研究所沙漠工程勘察设计所科研人员采用了一系列盐渍土改良技术和植被保护措施,选育了沙枣、爬山虎、柽柳、紫花苜蓿、沙冬青、南瓜等10余种耐盐碱、耐干旱的植物,在偌大的沙海营造出一抹绿色。   据中科院新疆生态与地理研究所沙漠工程勘察设计所副研究员孙永强介绍,这一绿化工程不仅改善了国投新疆罗布泊钾盐有限责任公司3000多名企业员工的工作、生活环境,也改变了钾盐基地的局部气候,为我国极端环境的绿化提供了示范。   罗布泊曾是中国第二大咸水湖,自上世纪70年代干涸后,成为世人皆知的“生命禁区”。不过,就在这片不毛之地下,却蕴藏着储量极为丰富的稀缺矿产资源――钾盐。随着国投新疆罗布泊钾盐有限责任公司对钾盐资源的逐步开发,这里已建成世界最大的硫酸钾生产基地,解决了中国钾肥自给率严重不足的难题,这片“死亡之海”以及沉睡地下万年之久的钾盐逐渐变身“财富之源”。相关的主题文章:
