Global Water Cycle

Consisting of 5 laboratories (Meteorology, Cloud and precipitation sciences, Hydroclimatology, Oceanography, and Atmospheric Chemistry), we investigate processes (such as typhoon, precipitation system, monsoon, and ecosystem) associated with water circulation in the atmosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere to improve the understanding of climate variations and environmental problems.
