On May 27, the kick-off meeting of the (preparation) construction work of Nanjing Earth Sources and Environment Large Instrument Regional Center of Chinese Academy of Science was held in Nanjing. Cao Ning, the deputy head of the academy condition guarantee and finance administration, Qian Hui, the head of science and technology condition division, Jiang Yanbing, the deputy division head and members of member units of the regional center including Nanjing Soil Research Institute, Nanjing Institute of Geography and Limnology, and Nanjing Institute of Geology and Paleontology attended the meeting.
