Additional Information (notes, web addresses, etc.)
The Tibetan Observation and Research Platform (TORP) is engaged in the monitoring of these three aspects,
1) interaction between geological processes and climate,
2) high-resolution records and modern environmental processes, and
3) land surface processes and alpine atmospheric processes.
Nam Co Monitoring and Research Station for Multisphere Interactions,CAS (NAMORS): The NAMORS (30°46'N, 90°59'E, 4730 m a.s.l), located in the southeast shore of the Nam Co, northern slope of the Nyainqentanglha Mts, was established by the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research, CAS in 2005. Research in the station focuses on multisphere interactions in the geo-system. Since 2005, research projects include meteorological and hydrological monitoring, atmospheric boundary layer observation, modern lake processes and environmental change, monitoring of glacier, snow and permafrost, atmospheric environment observation, monitoring of vegetation and soils and other geophysical monitoring.
