Then, IPCC Authors made self-introductions, respectively. Prof. Wenjie DONG, introduced the history of the School of the Atmospheric Sciences of SYSU and international exchange programs.

Afterwards, students and researchers in the University engaged in discussions on topics such as climate extremes, projection uncertainty, climate effects of TP (the Tibetan Plateau), teleconnection and paleoclimate. Relevant experts gave the answers from the forefront of this field for each topic, receiving very active responses.
