Jiang Hongxing publishes in Environment International his new paper on BrC integrating radiocarbon and FT-ICR MS technologies, entitled ‘Biomass burning organic aerosols significantly influence the light absorption properties of polarity-dependent organic compounds in the Pearl River Delta Region, China‘. Congratultions!
During Oct-December 2018, we conducted a passive air sampling campaign in Guangzhou, which aimed to build a land-use region model of organic compounds in urban Guangzhou. 160 passive air samplers were installed in 80 monitoring station in total, covering 11 administrative regions. The Tianhe district was additionally intensive monitored for model evaluation. Prof. Duohogn Chen kindly helped to coordinate the network of air monitoring station. Xin, Yangzhi, Jiao, Hongxing, Ruling and Yingjian greatly contributed to the field work.
As a gift to the National Day, Haoyu published an important paper in ES&T entitled ‘Using Polyurethane Foam-Based Passive Air Sampling Technique to Monitor Monosaccharides at a Regional Scale’. This is her first ES&T paper. Congratulations!
To be No 1! I am sure that it will be a benchmark of regional monitoring of biomass burning across the earth planet.
It was a team work . Of the study, Haoyu did the experiment, wrote the manuscript; Guangcai supervised the chemical analysis; Tian Congguo of YIC coded the computer program/model for counting fire spots within 50 km of each sampling point, based on MODIS fire products; Yu Zhiqiang helped in managing the field sampling campaign; Li Jun joined discussions and managed the field sampling; Jiaqi, Hongxin, Shizhen helped with the experiment and joined the discussions; Lidia Morawska of QUT joined the discussion and polished the text. Gan Zhang inspired and designed the study.
