China on Thursday started a new round of measurement of the height of Mount Qomolangma, the world's highest peak in the country's Tibet Autonomous Region.

The announcement was made at a briefing by the Chinese Ministry of Natural Resources at the 5,200-meter-high base camp on Mount Qomolangma.

The measurement will combine the use of the satellite, accurate leveling and snow-level radar technologies and the result will be used in geodynamics research.

Moreover, data obtained including the height of the mount top, snow depth, meteorology and wind speed will offer first-hand reference for glacier monitoring and ecological protection.!language=1
