The conference aims to summarize recent findings and explore new directions on the Holocene climate change research to enhance understanding on high-low frequency climate fluctuations and climate responses across different parts of the globe as well as the interactions between climate impacts on human societies during this period. A focal goal will be to examine the development of proxy records and isotopic data and the progression in the integration of the databases for constructing more robust high-resolution climatic data sets and to expand data coverage in climate reconstruction. Substantive climatic or environmental events such as volcanic eruptions, typhoons (hurricanes), floods, drought, or significant phonological events (such as locust infestation) will be highlighted; numerical modeling results and long-term climate fluctuations based on physics and isotopic evidences will be given substantial attentions as well. The ultimate goal of the conference is to bring together the Holocene climate studies in Asia and the world, and to stimulate research partnership among international research teams to enhance collaboration in this field.

Marked themes:

  • Climate change in (late) Holocene
  • Paleo-hydroclimate and extreme events
  • Data merging, reconstruction methods and modeling
  • Climate change and human societal evolution
