The United States Department of Energy and the People's Republic of China (PRC) Chinese Academy of Sciences signed an agreement on 19 August 1987 to carry out a joint research program on the study of CO2-induced climate changes. The joint program has four tasks—analysis of general circulation models (GCMs), preparation and analysis of proxy and instrumental data, the study of the relationship between large- and regional-scale climates, and CH4 measurements. The program structure, technical tasks, and the initial research progress are described.
