A Chinese expedition team is conducting comprehensive geological research on Grove Mountain in Antarctica. They are also drafting a geological map. The distribution map will show the geological features of the area, including rocks and faults. The expedition team will study every accessible peak that is not covered by ice and snow. They will also collect and analyze a large amount of rock samples. This is the first time Chinese scientists are doing their efforts to draft a geological map of the Antarctic inland.
