Research Interests

Dr. Pan's recent research interests focus on air pollution, environment changes, and their interactions, with special attention to rain chemistry, aerosol composition and gases concentrations of NH3, HNO3, NOx, SO2, BTEX, etc. He is engaged in leading deposition flux measurement of nutrients (e.g., C, N, S and P) and toxics (e.g., heavy metals and PAHs) in natural and agricultural ecosystems, in developing the next-generation field experiments mimicking the reactive nitrogen (e.g., NH3) exchange between the atmosphere and plants. In particular, he is concerned in tracing the original sources/fate/process/effects of deposited materials, in developing isotope-based models for source apportionment to craft control strategies in mitigation of emissions and reduce their ecological impacts in the target area.

Dr. Pan have previously worked on field investigation of surface water chemistry of river and marsh in Northeast China, with a special focus on iron transport from land to ocean via river and air, follows the well-known idea of“iron hypothesis”that iron might limit phytoplankton growth in large regions of the ocean.
