Workshop on Understanding the Pan-Pacific Anthropocene

SYNOPSIS:
Human intelligence and activities have become an unprecedented new geological force, changing our atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, and even geosphere. The Pan-Pacific realm, with richness of civilizations, has been experiencing severe environmental pollution and ecological crisis, associated with swift regional economic development over the past decades. In this international workshop, we emphasize the international concern between human activity and hydroclimate changes, especially the anthropogenic impact on the Pan-Pacific region. It is also the 2nd workshop before the 1st annual Conference on Pan-Pacific Anthropocene (ConPPA) for the Preparation Committee of the Association of Pan-Pacific Anthropocene (APPA).

Organizers/sponsors:

National Taiwan University Research Center for Future Earth
Department of Geosciences, National Taiwan University
