Research Summary: Yuzhen Yan obtained his B.S. in Environmental Science from Peking University. He is currently working on the ice cores drilled in Allan Hills Blue Ice Areas, East Antarctica in the 2015-16 field season. Allan Hills could potentially preserve ice older than 2 million years, providing an exciting opportunity to study the Antarctica climate and atmospheric composition since the early Pleistocene.
