The Joint Seminar 2015 held between March 30 and April 2 in Taipei, brought together more than 30 experts from Taiwan and Austria and laid the foundation for future cooperation projects on various issues related to climate change. Specifically, the following five research topics were extensively discussed:
Topic 1. Extreme events and their effects on the terrestrial and aquatic carbon
Topic 2. Paleo-environments and geomorphology using optically stimulated luminescence dating
Topic 3. Typhoon event history based on chronological isotopic and elemental information recorded in corals
Topic 4. Methane emissions from paddy rice fields
Topic 5. Flood forecasting and risk management
In dedicated subgroups, research questions and hypotheses were elaborated and methodologies were discussed to tackle these research questions and test the hypotheses. The aim of the new Joint Seminar 2016 is to further develop the above-mentioned research topics into proposals and future Joint Projects. The proposed Joint Seminar will be an opportunity to bring together experience and techniques from different scientific fields to develop new approaches for global climate change research in mountainous regions with contrasting environmental and climatic settings in Austria and Taiwan. The complementary expertise and research approaches will very likely lead to synergies and benefits for the involved research groups of both countries, and constitute a sound basis for the development of new cooperation projects at high scientific level.
