Conference Purpose:
Under the counter attacks from extreme climate and natural forces, our homeland and society are facing the increasing threats of natural disasters and becoming more prone to the climate change and hazardous weather. From the perspective of environmental boundaries, the island of Taiwan is located at the continental and oceanic crust, hot and cold air masses, and terrestrial and marine areas. Active tectonic movements and vivid interactions between air masses, water masses, and oceanic currents create abundant natural resources. However, the frequent interaction of environmental factors also results in many unusual nature hazards such as typhoons, earthquakes, landslides, and debris flows. with high population and rapid economic development in the island, it becomes extraordinary linked between human lives and natural environments. Therefore, the Taiwan area and surrounding areas undoubtedly provide excellent materials for scientific research. The Taiwan Geosciences Assembly (TGA) invites domestic and international experts and researchers from various disciplines of Earth sciences (including space science, atmospheric science, oceanography, geology, hydrology, geophysics, geography, and science education) to present and discuss their multi-disciplinary research results under the scope of “new frontier for our beautiful Earth”. By this joint conference, we hope to explore the tasks of the resilience between human and natural environments, further provoking the public and governments to value the topics of land use and environmental changes in order to achieve the goal of sustainable development on the Earth.
