field research experiences:
up to now, i have leaded more than 20 scientific expeditions to tibetan plateau; among them seven times i have been to mt. everest. i am very experienced in field work at extreme high elevations (5000 – 7000 m).
more than 30 projects i have participated during the last decade, partial recent projects are listed here:
- water and heat cycles and their effects on regional environment in the key basins in the southern tibetan plateau, innovation project of cas (kzcx-yw-145), 2009-2011, pi;
- integrated study on anthropogenic metal pollutants in the atmosphere recorded in the environments of the nam co basin, tibetan plateau, national science foundation of china (nsfc, 40830743), 2009-2012, pi;
