Research Themes

 

M06010001

Atmospheric and Climate Dynamics

Use either theoretical analyses or numerical simulations to investigate the principles of atmospheric motion and thermodynamic mechanisms, so as to understand their roles in weather and climate phenomena.

M06010002

Numerical Analysis and Prediction

Develop and apply atmospheric model for simulating dynamical, physical or chemical processes in the atmosphere, as well as to facilitate weather and climate forecasting.

M06020001

Weather Analysis and Forecasting

Investigate weather phenomena and abrupt changes (on a timescale of a few days) based on meteorological observations; apply the found principles to improve weather forecast.

M06020002

Climate Variations

Study the low-frequency changes in atmospheric circulation, including intra-seasonal inter-annual and decadal variabilities, monsoon and climate change, as well as interactions of atmosphere with land, ocean and other climate sub-systems.

M06030001

Atmospheric Physics

Investigate physical processes in the atmosphere, including cloud microphysics, precipitation formation, atmospheric radiation and radiative transfer, cloud-radiation interactions, as well as their effect on weather and climate.

M06030002

Atmospheric Chemistry

Study the chemical conversion and transport of atmospheric compositions through laboratory experiments, field measurements and numerical simulations, focusing on issues like air pollution, and atmosphere-biosphere interactions, to understand current and future conditions of atmospheric environment.

M06040001

Boundary Layer Meteorology

Focus mainly on the physical processes occurred with the bottom 1 km of the troposphere that is strongly influenced by surface friction.  Processes investigated include the near-surface turbulence structures, energy and mass transport vertical fluxes, and their implication in problems of air pollution and agriculture meteorology.

M06050001

Middle and Upper Atmosphere

Investigate physical and chemical phenomena occurred in the stratosphere and the atmosphere above (e.g., ionosphere, magnetosphere, and outer space), using advanced space instruments such as satellite, sounding rockets, and ground remote sensing, as well as theoretical analysis and numerical simulations.

M06060001

Atmospheric Remote Sensing

Apply satellite and airborne remote-sensing instruments for observing changes in global atmosphere, ocean and land in systematic and efficient ways, in order to timely derive key meteorological parameters (such as temperature, moisture, wind fields and precipitation) for use in weather and climate analyses as well as for improving weather forecasts and model verification.
