New paper on OCPs in the PRD accepted by ES&T

Lele(乐乐), Shizhen(时真) and Li Jing’s (李静) new paper entitled ‘DDT, chlordane and hexachlorobenzene in the air of the Pearl River Delta revisited: a tale of source, history and monsoon‘ has been accepted for publication in ES&T.  The paper illustrates the general picture of the OCPs in the Pearl River Delta. It has been a team work achievement dedicated to our ATMSYC project. Well done and congratulations!

The geographic-anthropogenic factors, including source, history, and air circulation pattern, combine to affect the regional fate of OCP compounds. Inspired by Gan, illustrated by Lele and Shizhen.

Talk at SUSTech

On September 27, Gan and Shizhen visited the Department of Environment of  South China University of Science and Technology (SUSTech, 南方科技大学). We are invited by Professor Liu Congxuan (刘崇炫) of the university, and had nice opportunity to meet many of the colleagues in the department. Occasionally,   we met Professor Tao Shu of PKU . Gan gave a talk on POPs which last for 1hr 20min! This half-day visit has been very fruitful.

Talk to promote the group’s work.
