28th Himalayan Karakorum Tibet Workshop and 6th International Symposium on Tibetan Plateau Joint Conference
2013-04-01

28th Himalayan Karakorum Tibet Workshop and 6th International Symposium on Tibetan Plateau Joint Conference, 

Tuebingen/Germany, 22-24 August 2013

We are happy to invite you for participation in Tuebingen!
All actual information on the conference will be published and regularly updated on the conference web page: http://www.tip.uni-tuebingen.de/index.php/hkt-istp-2013-tuebingen
The main information also follows here below.

This will be the second HKT & ISTP joint conference after HKT24-ISTP5 2009 in Beijing and the first ISTP outside China.

Themes:
 
Geodynamics (the HKTW in its common manner)
The Tibetan Plateau and its surrounding mountain ranges and basins is a key region for researching continental collision processes and long-term climate evolution. It is also important for understanding natural hazards.
Topics: continental collision - plateau uplift and mountain building – geochronology - long-term paleoclimate evolution – neotectonics - earthquake activities and landslides
Climate, hydrology and cryosphere
The Tibetan Plateau with its surrounding mountain ranges is the water head of major river systems in Asia. Research on water cycle and climate archives helps to understand the Asian monsoon system and the plateau response to global change.
Topics: Climate observations and modeling – lakes, rivers, glaciers, permafrost and geomorphology in the view of water cycle and climate change – archives of Late Paleocene and Holocene climate evolution
 
Ecosystems in view of environmental change and human impact
The Tibetan Plateau is associated with extreme environmental conditions, while variability of monsoon climate is threatening human life with floods and droughts. The ecosystems are especially sensitive  to environmental change and human impacts.
Topics: ecosystems and biodiversity of alpine and monsoonal regions – response of ecosystems to environmental change and human impact – interdependence and environmental impact of land use
