Dust, Aerosols and Heavy Haze over China

Sources, Transformation, Transport, and Impact on the Regional and Global Environment

Authors: Zhuang, Guoshun

  • Reveals the formation mechanism of the heavy smog over China in detail using new research methods
  • Focuses on the mixing of natural dust and pollution aerosols in long-distance transport, proving that the air quality is not a local, but a regional or global issue Combines long-term observations with a short-term case study to draw reliable conclusions
  • Provides valuable guidance on how to control air pollution and improve air quality in typical regions of China

About this book

This book systematically investigates the characteristics, distribution, transformation, source and sink of aerosols over typical regions in China based on long-term observations, revealing that the secondary aerosol, dust, and biomass burning are the main causes of widespread smog. It proposes that organic aerosol, sulfate, nitrate and black carbon are the main extinction components in smog. In addition it quantitatively determines the influence of transport on local and regional air quality, and argues that traffic emissions are the triggering factor for the wide range of smog in China. It also demonstrates the mixing and interaction mechanism of dust with anthropogenic pollutants in long-distance transport and the air-sea exchange. The research findings and the large number of first-hand data provided make this a valuable reference resource for those involved in atmospheric science, especially basic atmospheric chemistry and aerosol science research.

About the authors

Dr. Guoshun Zhuang received his B.S and M.S. degrees in Chemistry and Physical Chemistry from East China Normal University and Fudan University, Shanghai, China, in 1967 and 1981, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in Atmospheric Chemistry from University of Rhode Island, USA, in 1990. Dr. Zhuang has been a Professor in Beijing Normal University since 1998 and in Fudan University since 2004.
Dr. Zhuang focuses on the research of atmospheric chemistry, especially in atmospheric environment and aerosol science. He has published over 150 peer-reviewed research papers in those prestigious international journals, such as Nature, JGR, ACP, AE, and EST. Two of his papers was among the ten most cited papers in the past five years of the respective journal. He was a leading recipient of National Natural Science Award of China in 2012 with his research of "The formation mechanism of the pollution aerosols and the impact on the air-quality in China". He is recognized as one of the leading scientists in the field of atmospheric environment in China.
