We met many familiar names/faces including Tom Harner, Kevin Jones, Pauzi, Rainer Lohmann, Joan Grimalt and Lidia Morawsk etc. The meeting ended with great success, achieved all the expected goals.  

In particular, the group of 4-beauties, Yazhou, Jiayi, Shizhen and Liu Xin played key roles in the organization and processing of the meeting.

On September 27, the 1st GOE Colloquium, after the academic event reform, was held in BBL.

This colloquium was mostly dedicated to Dilanka, Yi Xin, Zhao Xuan and Zhang Bolong for evaluation of their research plan, as well as to Geng Xiaofei for her mid-term PhD report.

Besides, Chen Wenwen introduced her PhD work on nitrosamines and  a plan of writing a review on nitrosamines in the environment. Leigh gave a talk on his thoughts and observations of human geography and AFNs (alternative food networks) and ecological civilization in China. Mahdi joined the group by giving a talk introducing himself and his research plan on illicit drugs and POPs in Iran.

Bolong is to work on radiocarbon analysis of methane in the air.

Dilanka, on PPCPs in Srilanka waters.

Zhao Xun, on 14C-PLFA study on biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbons.

Wenwen, on nitrosamines in waters.

Xiaofei made good progress in her PhD study.

Undergraduates from CUG

Undergraduates from China University of Geosciences (Wuhan)

did their winter interne in the group (15.1.26-15.2.5)

In Jan. 25th, two undergraduates (Ke Meng, Bolong Zhang) from Lisiguang college, China university of Geosciences came to our group for theirwinter interne. They are top students (will be graduate in 2016) who thought to be promising graduates in the near future.

During their stay in GIG, They used PLFAs analysis to explore the microbial communities in atmospheric particulates, samples collected in Wuhan, under the guaidance from Yishan Jiang. After the 2 week study, the two handsome boys excellently completed their task with main conclusions as follows:

z1

Conculusion1: Atmospheric particulates in downtown (Wuhan city) have more microbes than those in the suburb:

z2

Conclusion2: Common bacteria and eucaryon are most widely existed microbes in the atmospheric particulates:

z3Conclusion3: Bacteria increase when getting closer to downtown and decrease when moving away from the city:
