In September 1988, a group of fifty or so researchers and technicians from France and China met together in Gonghe, a tiny hamlet to the north of the Tibetan highlands, to carry out one of the most extensive seismological studies ever organized in China, the observation of a nearly 1000-km long section of the earth's crust.In difficult conditions, the two teams installed 240 seismic stations at 5 km intervals between Gonghe and Yushu, to record the shock waves produced by the detonation of several tons of explosives planted in holes drilled in the crust.
