China's 28th Antarctic expedition recovered a set of subsurface buoys in Antarctica's Prydz Bay using the icebreaker Xuelong on Dec. 18 Beijing time.

The buoys were deployed by the country's 27th Antarctic expedition about a year ago, and were recovered for the first time.

The buoys recorded detailed data for research in the characteristics of long-term water movement in the bay.
