Mongolia, April 2006

    From April 2nd to 6th, 2006, Gao Qingxian and I had the chance to visit Mongolia to learn more about the composition of its desert soils and to think about how we could cooperate with our new Mongolian friends. The visit was hosted by Dr. Ochirbat Batkhishig of the Institute of Geography, who is Mongolia's leading soil scientist, and Ms. Amgaa Gambat of the Institute of Meteorology and Hydrology. Most of our time was spent visiting these institutes and talking with their scientists. We got outside of Ulanbaatar once, however, to visit the Hustai National Park and see the newly reintroduced wild horses.
    As always, I recommend that you view these pictures full-screen (F11 in the MicroSoft world).
