Research Fields

Prof. Xu’s research focus on development modeling systems required for climate and climate change impact assessment in National Climate Center. Prof. Xu’s research is primarily focused in three areas. 1) Climate change and rapid development on freshwater resources with a specific focus on river discharge and water balance; 2) Multi-scale simulating on terrestrial eco-hydrology system and its response to climate change; 3) Delivery climate information to support impact assessment and decision making.
