The IMAGES (International Marine Past Global Changes Study) program has been initiated internationally since the first of January, 1996, and offered a major chance for a large and rapid increase in our understanding of Quaternary paleoceography and global climate change by using the information from studying marine sediment core records. As a formal full IMAGES member starting from August, 1996, the Consortium of Taiwan Institutions (CIT)(coordinated by National Taiwan University) has participated shipboard and shore-based research in IMAGES II cruise to southern Indian-Atlantic Ocean. This correspondence paper presents the scientific objectives designed for the cruise, with brief introduction to the recent research status and progress in Taiwan related to the cruise activities.
