A station to monitor and broadcast live sea floor conditions in Shanghai waters will start construction in the beginning of next year.

In future, the network of the station, which costs 2 million yuan per kilometer, will cover the peripheral waters of Shanghai and will play many important roles, including forecasting earthquakes seven seconds before they occur.

The live studio, featured with multiple high-tech elements, will be connected with optic-fiber cables laid 30-meters deep undersea. The cable can transmit energy and information accurately and reliably.

On December 7, the deep sea aquarium of Tongji University, showcasing cutting-edge deep sea technology opened in Shanghai. At the opening ceremony, Wang Pingxian, academician of China Academy of Sciences, disclosed the above information.
