Summary

picture

The Climate Research Department conducts research on advanced climate prediction for seasonal forecasting and global warming projection. Its staff analyze extreme climatic conditions and climate change, elucidate related factors and physical processes, work on the development of an earth system model and other numerical models, and conduct research to support climate system prediction based on the use of such models. Other work includes evaluating the influence of clouds and aerosols on the radiation budget via ground radiation observation and investigating radiation processes in the cryosphere, which has a significant feedback effect on the earth's climate system.
