MAIRS meets in Zhangjiajie
The 7th meeting of the Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) of the Monsoon Asia Integrated Regional Study (MAIRS) will be held in Zhangjiajie, China, on 23 and 24 April 2012. It will review the progress of the projects of MAIRS and discuss future directions and activities. The SSC meeting will be followed by an International Workshop entitled “Developing Asian Megacities Toward a Sustainable World” that will be organised jointly with the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), and Peking University.
MAIRS research focuses on the human-monsoon system interactions. It aims to generate knowledge and understanding as to the extent human activities modulate the Asian monsoon and how the changed monsoon will in turn impact social and economic development of Asia.
