On July 2-4, Shizhen, Hongxing, Li Jun and I went to Guiyang to attend a task meeting of ATMSYC program. which was dedicated to the screening of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) . Professor Fu Xuewu host the meeting. Professors Wang Youjie from Wuhan HUST joined with 5 students. We were able to meet Xu Yue and pay a short visit to Qingyan Ancient Town (青岩古 镇). The town was first built as a fortress in Ming Dynasty. A fruitful meeting and nice trip! Here are some pictures for archive.
On June 20-22, Shizhen, Li Jun, Jin Biao and Gan paid a visit to Wuhan. Xu Yue joined.
We first attended a workshop held by ATMSYC on the prioritization and list of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) for nation-wide control in China, which is a major task of ATMSYC. The discussions and ideas came with the workshop has been very successful and useful in the following name-listing job. One consensus is that we would provide 3 HAPs lists, one for nation-wide major source emission control, one for environmental health study/assessment in cities, and one as a need-to-care ‘theoretical’ list. The hostresses of the workshop, Professors Wang Youjie (王友洁) and Mei Surong (梅素容) invited us a feast welcome with Creyfish (小龙虾) in the famous ‘Liang-liang-zheng-xia’ (靓靓蒸虾) restaurant at Hankou (汉口).
On the next day, we payed a short trip in Wuhan University to see the landmark historic buildings of the university, guided by Hairong. Very memorable! We then went to China University of Geosciences (CUG) to meet Professor Qi Shihua (祁士华) and his team. We talked about potential joint collection of groundwater in the Jianghan plain （江汉平原）for a multiple purposes study on PFCs and DBC etc. Shizhen was happy to see Xing Xinli (邢新丽) and her son who she met in Lancaster. We also visited a source emission test lab by Professor Kong Shaofei (孔少飞), which was well established and looks impressive.
It has been 2 busy days, but indeed quite fruitful and enjoyable!
Wuhan University, where Jin Biao graduated from and Hairong is working.
The historical student dormitory with arches and steep stairs. It was designed by an architecture from Havard University.

On March 12-14, a group of us including Xu Yue, Lin Tian, Shizhen, Li Jun, Guangcai, Huang Huanfang (黄焕芳) and Zhang Gan gathered in Conghua for writing a review of POPs study dedicated to a book to be published. It has been fruitful and we took the opportunity to exchange perspectives on the most current progress in the POPs research area.
