-Chinese Academy of Sciences

2011-2013 Deposits of Wangzuo Cave and their paleoenvironmental significance




● Foundations of Paleo-environmentology


An introduction to provide a synthesis of the past decade of research into global changes that occurred in the earth system in the past. Focus is achieved by concentrating on those changes in the Earth's past environment.


● Biogeochemistry


An overview of the cycles of chemical elements, such as carbon, nitrogen, sulfur, phosphorus and their interactions with and incorporation into living things transported through earth scale biological systems in space through time.
