How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Question (1)
I am looking for the accurate location changes of ITCZ during the last 30 or 50 years. Have anyone done this work? Can you give some references?

The conference will be held in Beijing (May 11-12th 2019) organized by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (you can find more details here:, which aims at looking at the climate-environmental-societal system along the Silk Roads from different angles. Session 16- Paleoenvironmental Change and Disaster along the Silk Roads ( The Silk Roads region is one of the most complex and vulnerable region in the world. The current warming is significantly changing the climate and environment of this region. The future development of the environment along the Silk Roads under the global change is a big concern of local governments and scholars. In order to a better understanding of the future, we need to know the environment changes in a longer context. In this session, we invite contributions that aim to (1) reveal the climatic and environmental changes, as well as disasters along the Silk Roads region during the geological and historical periods by using various geological, biological, historical achieves and model simulations; (2)discuss their dynamics mechanisms and future changes. Contributions that integrate proxy, model, archaeological, historical and instrument data are particularly welcomed. conveners: Prof. Zhisheng An; Dr. Sebastian Breitenbach; Dr. Liangcheng Tan
