NIPCC-China International Symposium, Beijing, China, June 17, 2013
Several NIPCC scientists participated in an International Symposium held at the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), in Beijing, China on June 17th. The meeting was organized and chaired by Professor Weihong Cui, of the Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth, CAS, and head of NIPCC-China, and consisted of four sessions discussing (1) issues related to climate models, (2) climate-related impacts and responses, (3) climate observations and uncertainties, and (4) greenhouse gas monitoring. Approximately 200 persons attended the meeting.
The NIPCC expresses its gratitude to Professor Cui and the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research for organizing and hosting the event. We appreciate the hospitality they rendered to our delegation of speakers who attended the conference. The symposium was a great success and provided a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss important aspects of the debate over Earth's rising atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration. NIPCC members look forward to continued correspondence and future collaboration with those who attended.
The Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change, or NIPCC, is an international panel of scientists and scholars who have come together to understand the causes and consequences of climate change. The NIPCC has no formal attachment to, or sponsorship from, any government or governmental agency. As an organization, the NIPCC seeks to objectively analyze and interpret data surrounding the potential biological and climatological consequences of Earth's rising atmospheric CO2 concentration. Its findings are available to the public in reviews and published reports found at www.nipccreport.org.
