Prof. Hang Su gave a talk on multiphase processes in the aerosol, cloud and biosphere interactions

2019-02-25 138

On the invitation of Prof. Pingqing Fu, Prof. Hang Su from the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in Germany visited ISESS on the afternoon of February 22, and gave an academic report entitled “Multiphase processes in the aerosol, cloud and biosphere interactions”. 



Prof. Su started the report by sharing his own research experience in using various research methods such as field observation, laboratory condition experiment, modelling and so on. Then, he introduced  the recent progress from the aspects of atmospheric-biosphere interaction, aerosol-cloud interaction, multiphase chemical processes, black carbon and its climatic effects,  and the impact of soil HONO emissions on nitrogen cycle, the mechanism of aerosol cloud formation process, and the effects of meteorological conditions and emission sources, chemical mechanisms and transport process on haze. He stressed that cutting off the oxidation path would be an effective way to relieve haze, and concluded the report with preliminary research results of global black carbon observation. 

Prof. Hang Su received his PhD degree from Peking University, China in 2008 and worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry from 2008 to 2013. He is currently a research group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry and a guest professor at the University of Science and Technology of China. His research interest is multiscale multiphase processes relevant for the Earth Science, including atmosphere-soil exchange of reactive nitrogen species, multiphase processes in the formation and transformation of clouds and aerosols. He has published over 70 peer-reviewed journal articles including 5 hot papers (top 0.1%), 9 highly-cited papers (top 1%) and 9 publications in interdisciplinary highlight magazines (4 in Science, 2 in Science Advances, 2 in PNAS, 1 in Nature Communications) with substantial international press coverage (e.g., Wired, Discovery News Channel, Chemistry World, Xinhua News etc.).
