During December 15-19, 2014, the Third Pole Environment (TPE) program held another session “Third Pole Environment under global changes” at the annual American Geophysical Union (AGU) fall meeting.
This session received over 40 high-quality abstracts, and consisted of two oral presentation sessions and three poster sessions. Eleven scientists from, respctively, China, U.S.A, Germany, and U.K. were invited to give an oral presentation in the presentation session. Their topics ranged from paleoclimate and environment reconstruction from ice cores and lake sediment cores, to glacial mass balance in the Third Pole region, and from geology in East Asia to present day environment.
During the three poster sessions, about 40 scientists shared their research in the TPE session. They exchanged notes with over 20,000 scientists attending the AGU from all over the world, to promote the TPE concept and explore opportunities for further cooperation in the TPE study.
