This edited volume of papers is a compilation of recent research on the nature of paleoenvironmental change and landscape development in Tibet and the bordering mountains. Many of the papers in this volume were presented at the 5th International Symposium on Tibetan Plateau that was held jointly with the 24th Himalaya-Karakorum-Tibet Workshop in Beijing on August 11–14, 2009. The conference was hosted by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), the Ministry of Land and Resources of China, the People’s Government of the Tibet Autonomous Region and was co-sponsored by the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the CAS and Technology, several related institutions from the CAS, the China Geology Survey Bureau, the China Meteorology Administration, the China Earthquake Administration and Tibet Autonomous Region. The conference was organized by Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research, CAS, Institute of Geology, Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences, the China Society on Tibetan Plateau, the Department of Science and Technology, the Institute of Geographical Sciences and Natural Resources Research, and the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development. The conference provided a forum for scientists concerned with both theoretical and applied environmental research in Tibet and the bordering mountains. The main areas of research that were discussed included: lithosphere geodynamics and continent–continent collision; geological evolution and mineral resource development; uplift of the Plateau and its environmental evolution; climatic and environmental changes and their mechanisms, responses and influences of land surface processes on the Plateau and globally; and resources, environment and social-economic development on the Plateau.
