AsiaFlux is a regional research network bringing together scientists from universities and institutions in Asia to study the exchanges of carbon dioxide, water vapor, and energy between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere across daily to inter-annual time scales.
It is a highly specialized conference organized by the Malaysian Peat Society (MPS), Sarawak Tropical Peat Research Institute (TROPI) and AsiaFlux Scientific Steering Committee and co-organized by the National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES) and Hokkaido University.
With the central theme, “Understanding Tropical & Subtropical Ecosystem Processes”. We are planning to have a special issue in Agricultural and Forest Meteorology to celebrate this special meeting. This special issue will consist of a collection of scientific reviews and papers resulting from presentations at the conference. In addition, this special issue will be open for submissions of any papers which are relevant to the theme of the meeting.
The main aim is for this Conference to act as a platform to create awareness to the government, the industries, and the people especially potential young scientists from South East Asia such as Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam, on the importance of GHG Cycling in guiding sustainable land use policies in the region.
