China's lowest inland point is 154.31 meters below the sea level, the State Bureau of Surveying and Mapping and the government of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region jointly announced here on Sunday.
The figure means the lowest point at Aiding Lake in the northwestern Xinjiang has gotten "higher" by 0.22 meter over the past 29 years. The same point was measured at 154.536 meters below the sea level in 1979.
Experts attributed the 0.22-meter gap to the use of modern surveying technologies and possible geomorphological changes over the years.
