These collectanea include 59 articles of my English works from 1964 to 2007. The first article, Professor Zhu Kezhen Opening up a Path for Research on Climatic Change in China, was written in Prof. Zhu’s honour in his twenty-year Yahrzeit, to commemorate his contribution as a distinguished leader to the development of Chinese science and education in the 20th century. With passion democracy and innovative spirit, he promoted scientific researches and higher educations in China, and hence enjoyed a high prestige among Chinese intellectuals. His research fields ranged from meteorology and geography to natural science history, in particular, historical climatic change, on which he had written eight articles. His last and most prominent paper, entitled Preliminary Study on Climatic Change during Last Five Thousand Years in China, opened up the path for research on climate change and induced many scientists thereafter to engage in this field.
