On October 13, this year’s 16th typhoon Nangka made landfall in coastal Qionghai, South China’s Hainan province. Targeted at the generation and development of Nangka, a ground-ocean-space multi-platform coordinated observation scientific experiment was successfully carried out from October 12 to 14 in coastal areas of central-northern South China Sea. Satellites, air planes, drones, and wind-chasing observation vehicles were flexing their muscles during the experiment, obtained a raft of valuable data, and showcased the feasibility of this scientific experiment. This is the largest scale typhoon scientific experiment with most observation facilities so far.
