Central Asia Workshop, 8-12 May 2013

The Central Asia workshop gathers thirteen researchers working on the glacial history of the Central Asian region at the Navarino Environmental Observatory May 8-12, 2013. Earlier workshops were held in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan (2011), and at the Tarfala Research Station (2012). This time, researchers came from the USA, Russia and Sweden to discuss results from last years’ field season in the Tian Shan, to write a group review paper on the glacial history of the Tian Shan, and to prepare the upcoming fieldwork to the Altai Mountains. The programme was led by Arjen Stroeven, Department of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology, Stockholm University, and funded through the Swedish Research Council 2012-15.
