On June 11-15, 2017, the International Workshop on Asian Monsoon Variability and Dynamics was held in Xi’an, China. This workshop is to clarify the key scientific issues on the monsoon variability and dynamics across different timescales by comparing proxy records and simulation results, which was hosted by Institute of Earth Environment, Chinese Academy of Sciences and co-sponsored by State Key Laboratory of Loess and Quaternary Geology (LLQG) and State Key Laboratory of Biogeology and Environmental Geology (BGEG). More than sixty people participated in this workshop.
The opening ceremony of the workshop was chaired by Prof. SUN Youbin, deputy director of IEECAS. LIU Yu, director of IEECAS and AN Zhisheng, chairman of Academic Committee of IEECAS general introduced the development of IEECAS and gave a warm welcome to the participants as the hosts. The workshop was divided into six sessions according to timescales, tectonic-monsoon linkage, Cenozoic climate change, orbital-scale climate change, novel proxies and climate change, Holocene climate change, climate from present to future. Twenty-five scholars at home and abroad gave oral presentation on their recent progress, which all have aroused extensive discussions. After the sessions, the participants also discussed the prospects and future collaboration on “Latitudinal Correlation Project of Northern Hemisphere climate change”. At the last day, the participants had a field trip to Lantian loss section and a laboratory tour in IEECAS.
