On July 12, I was invited to visit Nanjing University of Information Technology and give a class on a summer school (SS) organized by Zhang Yanlin (章炎麟). I gave a class entitled ‘POPs: from Chemistry to Geochemistry’. During the 2 days in NUIT I met professors Tao Shu (陶澍), Liu Congqiang (刘丛强), Li Fangbai（李芳柏) etc who were also ‘teacher’ of the SS. We drank a lot and the trip was enjoyable thanks to Yanlin and his colleagues’ good organization. I also had a view on Yanlin and Cao Fang (曹芳)’s aerosol isotope lab which is well equipped and managed. I came to know that there were more than 20 research students working in his group, while realizing that I am ‘grand-teacher’. Attended the SS are also students from 俊文’s group (JNU) and 瑞杰’s group (GXU).
More than 140 students joined the SS.

Former group member Dr Zhang Yanlin (章炎麟) with his colleague Dr Chang Yunhua (常运华）and a Thailand PhD student, Savaeng Kawichai (Tee), visited the group on Dec 3-4. Tee is working on biomass burning in Chiang Mai province of Thailand. Yunhua is working on nitrogen isotopes and source apportionment of nitrogen in the air. Yanlin is a professor of Nanjing University of Information Technology, formerly known as 南京气象学院。

Professor Kimitaka Kawamura from Hokkaido University visited the group. (2015.11.07)
(Kimitaka Kawamura, Fu Pingqing and Zhang Yanlin visited GIG on Nov 7th 2015)
Kimitaka Kawamura is a professor of chemistry in Hokkaido University. He visited our group and the VOC group, with his former postdoc Fu Pingqing and present postdoc Zhang Yanlin, on November 7th. His research mainly focus on physical and chemical property of aerosols, organic species composition, distribution, origin, transformation and long-range atmospheric transport, as well as climate effect.He has published nearly 300 publications in mainstream journals including Atmos. Chem. Phys, J. Geophys. Res. Atmos., and Environ. Sci. & Technol. His work was cited by other scholars in SCI-indexed journals near 10,000 times.
Professor Kawamura gave a lecture titled “Decadal and seasonal distributions of low molecular weight dicarboxylic acids and related compounds, and inorganic ions in the marine aerosols from the western North Pacific”.
