Evidence is now overwhelming that changes in greenhouse gas concentration and average temperature are a consequence of human activities superimposed on natural variation. How can we distinguish anthropogenic factors from natural variability? What will climate changes herald for the future of human societies? These are compelling and urgent questions, especially for areas with high population density and growth, such as on the Asian continent. By locating the 2nd OSM in Beijing, PAGES hopes to increase the visibility of paleoenvironmental research in Asia and provide opportunities for international collaborations.

Beijing
Beijing, the capital of China, is located in the north-east at 43.5 m above sea level. The city covers an area of 16,808 km2, encompassing 18 districts and counties, with a population of about 11 million. The weather in August is usually warm with some rain. Temperatures range from 12-38°C (54-100°F), with an average temperature of 24°C (77°F).
