Liu Xin and Ruling published their paper entitled ‘Field evaluation of diffusive gradients in thin-film passive samplers for wastewater-based epidemiology’ in STOTEN. This has been a joint contribution between Viet Nam University of Science (Hanoi) and GIG. It is also the second paper, next to Kuala Lumpur, of our group in the area of illicit drugs by wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE). Congratulations!

William visited the group on Jan 3-5. William met us at a workshop organized by Lancaster University, in Accra, Ghana in last March. He then decided to pursue his PhD degree in our group. William has been a technical officer in the Water Research Institute (WRI) of Commonwealth Science and Industry Research (CSIR) of Ghana (加纳). He was successfully enrolled in China Geosciences University at Wuhan, with the help from Professor Qi Shihua（祁士华）. He will spend his first year in Wuhan for classes, then join us in Guangzhou for research. On this visit, he gave a talk introducing himself on group meeting on Jan 4th. In the meantime, we had time to gather at night of the 3rd for a beer on the waterfront of the Pearl River, and the 4th at Hutaoli (胡桃里）pub. Willaim will go back to Ghana for sampling in the coming winter holiday.
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.
Installed samplers in Jinan University.
