On the 15th of November, the intensive air sampling campaign was initiated in Heshan Atmospheric Supersite (receptor site), Guangzhou (GIG, urban site), and Boluo (Background site). The campaign, named as “Wind-in-his-hair” (风中散发) by Gan, will last for one month. Chuxin, Yuwei, and Jianchu/Yingjian will be responsible for the operations in Heshan, Guangzhou and Boluo, respectively. Atmospheric particulate and gaseous samples, carbon dioxide and bulk deposition samples will be collected synchronically at the 3 key sites. We look forward to fruitful results from this fieldwork.
On Oct 10th, a small group of us went to the Heshan air monitoring supersite, to setup air sampling machines on the rooftop of the station building. This denotes that the field sampling campaign is on action, of which the objectives are to monitor and estimate the emissions of various pollutants (POM, POPs) and CO2 etc from the PRD city cluster, by means of down-wind observations and modeling. The name of the campaign, Wind-in-his-air (风中散发-Emission in the wind), is adapted from the name of an Indigenous Indian in the Oscar Academy-winning movie ‘Dances with Wolves’ (与狼共舞）. The campaign is led by Shizhen, joined by Li Jing (modelling), Yao Chuxin (POM), Li Pingyang (CO2), and many of the Air-Omics squad members. Occasionally, the wind field shifted to NNE from SE on the day, which is a sign of success.
Near-ground NNE wind started right on the day.

During Jan13-19,2022, Shizhen and her team, the Air-Omics Squad(“爱米小分队”）（Lele, Jianchu, Yuwei and Yingjian), started a refreshing work on fish sampling. All fish samples were coming from the South China Sea, the East Sea, the West Sea, the Bohai Sea , the North Bay and Amur River. The flesh and livers of four types of fish( Monkfish, yellow fish, silver pomfret, hairtail and chum salmon) were cut and homogenized, and the mixtures were stored in closed brown glass bottles. This comes to be new content of the Air-Omics Squad project.
Lele and Yingjian was dealing with the hair fish and monkfish separately.
