  • Aug 2000-Jul 2002
    Institute of Soil Science, Chinese Academy of Science (CAS)
    Research Scientist
    As a participant of ACIAR (Australian Center for International Agriculture Research) project in China, the candidate worked on simulating nitrate leaching in field soil in North China Plain. The project devoted to minimization of environmental contamination from intensive agriculture. He had full responsibility on collecting, quality controlling, and web publishing of soil, water, salinity, meteorology, and crop data collected in Fengqiu Experimental Station (FES), CAS in Henan, China. The FES functions as a part of the Chinese Ecosystem Research Network (CERN), one of the funding members of the International Long Term Ecosystem Research Network (ILTER), and Global Terrestrial Observation System (GTOS).
