Geo-ecosystems in Transition on the Tibetan Plateau (TransTiP)

[Translate to English:]

Introduction

Welcome to the homepage of the International Research Training Group 2309

The IRTG "Geoecosystems in transition on the Tibetan Plateau" (TransTiP) is an international research training program which grants German and foreign students an international education within the cooperative environments of Technische Universität Braunschweig, Leibniz Universität Hannover, Friedrich Schiller University Jena and the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research in Beijing. TransTiP offers a PhD program specializing in Geosciences with a research and teaching focuses on:

  • Sediment fluxes
  • Carbon fluxes
  • Water fluxes and water quality
  • Environmental humanities

aiming to understand consequences of climate change for geo-ecosystems on the TP and how these processes will affect water resources, carbon fluxes, biodiversity, as well as human-environment relationships in the future.

TransTiP provides graduate student training organized in tandem projects which are run by two German and at least one Chinese PI. Sino-German collaboration is characterized by joint fieldwork, summer schools and a six-month research stay at the partner university.
