The Third Pole Environment (TPE) program aims to attract relevant research institutions and academic talents to focus on a theme of ‘water-ice-air-ecosystem-human’ interaction in the TPE, to reveal environmental change processes and mechanisms on the Third Pole and their influences and regional responses to global changes, especially monsoon systems, and thus to serve for enhancement of human adaptation to the changing environment and realization of human-nature harmony.
 
Scientific Goal:
To reveal and quantify, from the perspectives of earth system sciences, the interactions among atmosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere and anthroposphere on the Third Pole and their influences on the globe in order to assess the likely future impacts of global change.
