We were invited to contribute to support the new academic journal of NSFC, the FMRE. Entitled ‘Radiocarbon isotope technique as a powerful tool in tracking anthropogenic emissions of carbonaceous air pollutants and greenhouse gases: a review’, the article has been a team work outcome. We designed/created/updated many new/classic figures. Congratulations to all authors!
Junwen’s paper ‘Isotope constraints of the strong influence of biomass burning to climate-forcing Black Carbon aerosols over Southeast Asia’ was published in STOTEN. This is our first paper on monitoring biomass burning in Bachok background station of Malaysia. We are greatly in debt to Professor Pauzi and Chui Wei of University of Malaya with whom we have developed long-term collaboration and personal friendship. And I hope more to come with our collaborations. Congratulations to Junwen as well!
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.
Do my job.
