> Access

The meeting aims at discussing (using modeling and proxy records) East Asian Summer Monsoon in aspects related to ocean, atmosphere, land surface, climate and biosphere, its human impacts and teleconnections worldwide. Both records of the past and present-day observations will be reviewed to better understand the mechanisms driving its behavior and so, to better predict it and its impacts.

This International Conference is the third in a series of Alexander von Humboldt Conferences initiated by EGU and related to geophysical topics of particular importance to South America and East Asia. PAGES is a co-sponsor of this meeting.
