On Sep 26th, the group of Air-Omics + Squad (including Gan, Shizhen, Nigar, William, Linbo, Shaojun, Lele, Jianchu, Yuwei, Weiru and Yifan) and one fellow (Jiao) representing Organic Geochemistry Squad gathered together to enjoy a spicy but tasty dinner for approaching Moon Cake Festival. The cuisines were so hot and appetizing that we ate up every dish in less than 10 min. We also shared some traditional white lotus with salted egg yolk mooncakes provided by Shizhen. Everyone gave a toast to the whole group and shared their heart-to-heart thoughts about study and life. We had such a wonderful night！
On August 11-13, Shizhen, Gan, Junwen met Xu Yue in Guiyang on the 8th Conference on Environmental Geochemistry. It was really nice to see Xu Yue after seemingly a long time. Meanwhile we met many familiar faces in the circuit. Gan gave an oral presentation on radiocarbon in the atmosphere. After the conference, Xu Yue arranged a casual trip to the upper reach of Wujiang River (乌江源), which is very memorable.
On August 10-11, I was invited by Professors Ouyang Gangfeng (欧阳钢锋) of SYSU and Yang Xiupei (杨秀培) of Xihua Normal University (西华师范大学) to give a keynote speech on the 4th Conference of Environmental Analytical Chemistry at Nanchong (南充). I introduced our work on developing the radiocarbon analytical techniques for tracking carbonaceous species in the atmosphere. After the conference, as one of the standing committee members of Minmeng Party Guangdong Branch (民盟广东省委), I was arranged by Mr Ren Zhaogang (任兆刚) of XHNU to visit the memorial house of Mr Zhang Lan (张澜), who was one of the founders of Minmeng Party (民盟). The acting director of Nanchong Minmeng Party, Mr 唐虎鸣, and his assistant 范虎 accompanied me during the visit. It was a great trip, albeit the very hot weather in Nanchong!
It was very hot.
