Chinese flotilla returns from West Pacific

Feb 15 2013, 3:47am CST | by

Beijing, Feb 15 (IANS) A flotilla of Chinese Navy has completed the year's first open sea training exercise in the West Pacific Ocean and returned Friday to China, China Daily reported.

Beijing, Feb 15 — A flotilla of Chinese Navy has completed the year's first open sea training exercise in the West Pacific Ocean and returned Friday to China, China Daily reported.

During the 18-day exercise, the People's Liberation Army (PLA) flotilla patrolled the South China Sea and conducted a joint anti-submarine exercise.

The fleet was followed by foreign aircraft and warships for much of the time, according to a Xinhua reporter aboard one of the flotilla vessels.

The flotilla comprises three ships -- DDG-113 Qingdao and two frigates FFG-53 Yantai and FFG-546 Yancheng -- carrying three helicopters. They are all from the North China Sea Fleet under the PLA Navy.

It sailed through the Yellow Sea, the East China Sea, the Miyako Strait, the Bashi Channel and the waters off the eastern coast of Taiwan.

The journey was more than 5,800 nautical miles and lasted for 408 hours.

More than 700 naval officers and soldiers participated the exercise, which was commanded by Vice Admiral Tian Zhong.

Dry, Dry, Dry: Hopes for El Niño Collapse

Jul 15 2014 1:38pm CDT | Source: Big Government

Australia's Bureau of Meteorology has poured cold water on hopes for drought relief in California. The agency announced Tuesday that earlier warming in the Pacific Ocean, which usually indicates the start of an "El Niño" effect, had been counteracted by the arrival of cooler water. "While the majority of climate models suggest El Niño remains likely for the spring of 2014, most have eased their predicted strength," the agency reported. El Niño typically brings la ...

For those who generally prefer the company of trees over the company of people, Muir Woods is a transportive place to visit. If you get here right at sunrise, you will have the 500 acres pretty much to yourself, except for the exuberantly randy gobbler that came charging out of the forest to confront the rental car and gobble himself blue and red in the face. Muir Woods is nestled in a valley a few hundred feet above the Pacific Ocean j ...

Prince Charles Visits Sony UK Technology Centre
The ocean covers almost three quarters of our planet and sustains life on Earth as we know it. But our ocean is at grave risk today -- and we know the reason why. Human activity threatens the world's ocean. Often illegal international fishing practices are decimating fisheries.
