The 5th Chinese base is on Inexpressible Island near the western shore of the Ross Sea ~390km norwest of McMurdo(US) and Scott Base(NZ). Map of Chinese Antarctic bases which I can update more as time allows.
University of Canterbury Professor Anne-Marie Brady has been in the news lately having been burgled at her home and work. She has written often on the growing influence of China and in 2017 wrote “China as a Polar Great Power”. On 15Feb18 she gave evidence to the Australian Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security – there is a link to a 9 page Hansard pdf in the NZ Herald article 1Jan19. I have blogged in the past re the Chinese icebreaker Xuelong. A few days ago Xuelong called at Christchurch’s Lyttelton Port on way south.
