ICDP workshop on scientific drilling of Nam Co on the Tibetan Plateau: 1 million years of paleoenvironmental history, geomicrobiology, tectonics and paleomagnetism derived from sediments of a high-altitude lake

The Tibetan Plateau is of relevance as it provides water to a large portion of the Asian population. To define parameters for climate change scenarios it is necessary to improve the knowledge about past climatic changes in this area. Sedimentary archives like Nam Co provide the possibility to get such information. In order to explore opportunities of an ICDP drilling at Nam Co, 40 scientists met in May 2018. Everybody agreed on the need to drill this site with a sediment thickness > 1 km (> 1 Ma).
