Research Fields

My primary academic interest areas are the land surface process and climate modeling.
As a member of the land surface modeling group, I’ve been participating in the new generation climate system model development since 2005, focusing on biogeochemical processes, including terrestrial carbon cycle and dynamical vegetation to meet the PCMDI5 experiments requests.
Another job is to connect the satellite remote dataset products with climate models, such as land cover mapping and land surface-related parameters (snow, albedo).
The work on regional climate modeling includes the parameterization scheme improvement (soil moisture and temperature in RegCM_NCC based on RegCM2), operationalization experiments of RegCM_NCC in short-term climate prediction (1997-2004), and coupling of the RegCM with hydrology and crop model, as well as investigations on the impacts of “initial” land surface factors, like the land cover, initial soil moisture, heat flux and snow cover (since 2004).
I’ve also made diagnostic studies of the relationship between summer monsoon and rainfall of the South China before 1997.
I’ve also been involved in various key national and natural science foundation projects, including the NSFC, “863 (National High Technology Research and Development Program of China) ”, “973 (National Basic Research Program of China)”, public interest projects, and so on.
