From May 31st to June 1st, our group members took a trip to Wan-Lv-Hu Lake in Heyuan for water sampling and celebrating the International Children’s day by the way. A total of 120 L surface water and 40 L deep water (50 m) were collected. This designed sampling campaign mainly focuses on the dissolves black carbon in water which plays an important role in black carbon and carbon cycle. We look forward to productive outputs from this sampling campaign.
