After the 2015 earthquake in Nepal, there was speculation that the height of Mount Everest, the world’s highest mountain peak, has decreased. Now all such speculation has stopped. Because the height of Mount Everest has increased by 86 centimeters than the previous time. Which has been announced jointly by China and Nepal.
Now the new height of Mount Everest is 8848. 86 meters In May this year, China sent a 30-member survey team to Everest to measure the height of Everest.
Which reached the summit of Everest and measured the length of Mount Everest with the help of Global Satellite System. Apart from China, Nepal’s survey team has also measured the height of Everest and this is done by Nepal for the first time and then the two countries together jointly announced the new height of Everest.jointly announced on Tuesday, China’s state-run Xinhua news agency said in an exceedingly brief report.
Nepal recalculates the peak of Mount Everest at 8848.86 metres, the country’s Foreign Minister Pradeep Gyawali announced in Kathmandu.
The new height is 86 cms more than the previous measurement. According to the measurement tired 1954 by Survey of India, the height of Mount Everest is 8,848 me.
Earlier, the media reports said Chinese surveyors have conducted six rounds of scaled measurement and scientific analysis on Mount Everest and released the peak of the peak twice in 1975 and 2005, which was eight,848.13 metres and eight,844.forty three metres respectively.
In Tibetan language, Mount Everest is known as Mount Qomolangma.China and Nepal settled their border dispute in 1961 with the boundary line passing through the summit of Mount Everest.
Mount Everest is found in the collision and compression zone between the sides of the Indian plate and the Eurasian plate, where crustal movement is terribly active.
Accurately measuring the peak of Mount Qomolangma is helpful to the study of the elevation changes of the Himalayas and Qinghai-Tibet Plateau,” Gao Dengyi, an atmospheric physicist with the Chinese Academy of Sciences told the Chinese state media earlier.
Between 1849 and 185five, the Survey of India made observations from Dehradun, India base to Sonakhoda base in Bihar throughout which the Himalayan peaks of Nepal were additionally observed.
At that time it wasn’t known that this peak in the Himalayas was the very best in the globe. During computations, the mean computed height of Peak XV came out to be 8839.80 metres, and it absolutely was later named after Sir George Everest, the ex surveyor-general of India.
The widely accepted height of eight,848 metres was determined by the Survey of India in 1954 from Bihar using the trigonometric technique.
