Topics discussed include chlorinated organic contaminants in surface sediments of the Yangtze River estuary and adjacent East China Sea; environmental and land-use changes in the Tibetan Plateau section of the Upper Yangtze River Basin during the last fifty years; hydro-development, the environmental and cultural sustainability of the Yangtze River; and more.
