Dr. Jie Zeng is now the professor (Special Post) of Guizhou University. Jie’s research interest including atmospheric deposition & materials circulation and stable isotope environmental geochemistry (traditional and non-traditional stable isotopes in atmosphere, hydrosphere, pedosphere and their environmental effects). Jie has published 57 SCI papers (including 20 first-author SCI papers, 1 ESI Hot Paper and 5 ESI Highly Cited Papers) on the international journals, such as Atmospheric Research, Atmospheric Environment, Agriculture Ecosystems & Environment, Sustainable Cities and Society, Journal of Cleaner Production, Environmental Pollution, Science of The Total Environment, Environmental Research, Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety, Ecological Indicators. He has also participated in the compilation of 6 books and organized a Special Issue in Atmosphere as a Guest Editor Assistant. These papers and books focus on the intersection of atmospheric environmental science and geochemistry. He systematically identified the spatio-temporal variability and sources of rainwater chemical components (mainly pollutants) in karst agricultural/urban/forest areas (China) over a long-time scale based on the rainwater stoichiometry and multi-isotopes (e.g., 15N, 18O, 44Ca). He has first reported the “depression capture effect” of atmospheric wet subsidence in karst area and the calcium isotope composition of rainwater in karst forest areas in China and explored the trend of alkalization of rainwater in karst area. He has also reported the rainwater chemical evolution driven by extreme rainfall on the background of global climate changes and its environmental effects. These innovative works highlighted the significant function and application of geochemistry and isotope geochemistry on the atmospheric environmental protection. Based on these works, he applied the methods and principles of geochemistry and isotope geochemistry to the environmental protection and study, which significantly contributed to the and considerably contributed to the ecological civilization.
