The Joint Seminar aims at the exchange of knowledge between experts from Austria and Taiwan in different fields of science dealing with climate change issues. The scientific goal of the conference is the development of an integrated view on climate change related issues integrating social factors, environmental factors and methodological aspects of climate change research. A major focus will lie on the development of a Joint Project in the field of climate change research taking an integrated viewpoint connecting environmental and social factors in Austria and Taiwan. Proposed title: ‘Climate change - global effects and local strategies: development of integrated scenarios for mountainous regions in different climatic zones’.
A second scientific core question is the use of predictive indicators, like biological organisms or isotopes, to investigate past climate histories of ecosystems and to draw conclusions for future development.
The proposed Joint Seminar will give the unique opportunity to bring together experience and techniques from different scientific fields to develop new approaches for integrated global climate change research in mountainous regions with contrasting environmental and climatic settings in Austria and Taiwan.
