Update from Beijing

Posted by The College of Science at OSU on August 4, 2008

Dr. Staci Simonich writes a quick e-mail from Beijing:

In one of the most polluted atmospheres I have ever been in on Monday in Beijing with visibility only 0.5 miles or so with air sampler. Very hot and humid (see hair). The student is from Peking University (Mr. Wentao Wang) and will be spending 1 year in my lab analyzing the samples we are collecting.

On Friday night, Dr. Simonich was able to attend a rehearsal of the opening ceremony where she expected security to be very tight!

She shared a link to this article with us, to help illustrate what she’s up to: Beijing Considers New Curbs as Pollution Threatens Games
