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.

On May 16-20, several of the group members attended the 16th POP Forum in Xi’Ning. It was a wonderful conference. Huang Chen, Shizhen and Gan gave talks, Wang Xiao presented a poster. We also met former group members Lin Tian, Pan Xiaohui and Zhang Ruijie. After the meeting, we had a half-day trip to Taer Temple (塔乐寺）one-day trip to Chaka Salt Lake （扎卡盐湖）and Qinghai Lake. We were lucky that arranged by Mr Yang we were able to enter the centre of the Natural Reserve of Qinghai Lake, also called Niandao. We had a unique experience along the lake shore with splendid view and birds around.
Do click the video for wonderful moment! And look at the head image taken by Gan.
