报告题目：Monsoon-induced Tropical-Extratropical Interactions in a Teleconnected World
主 持 人：罗京佳 教授
Asia-Australian (A-A) monsoon is a key component of the global climate system, with its impacts not limited within the monsoon domain but with global consequences. Yet, thanks to its complexity our understanding of the monsoon system is still limited and skilful modelling and forecasting the A-A monsoon at a range of temporal and spatial scales remain a great challange. In this talk, I will breifly introduce some collaborative research projects conducted between scienitists in Australia and China on the A-A monsoon in current and future climate. Key scientific questions addressed in these studies are: (i)To what extent the Asian monsoon and Australian monsoon are connected and how that affects climate variability and predictability in the region; (ii) How is the monsoon evolution represented in global models and how that could be potentially changed under warmed climate; (iii) How does tropical monsoon affect extratropics through atmospheric teleconnections and moisture transport, including some highlights from a recent project on Atmospheric River analysis. Finally, I will comment on a few areas we could collaborate in the future.
Dr. Huqiang Zhang graduated from the Nanjing Meteorological Institute in 1986 with a Bachelor of Sciences in Climatology; He obtained his Master of Sciences in Climate Dynamics from the Chinese Academy of Meteorological Sciences and 1989 and PhD in Atmospheric Physicsis from Macquarie University (Australia) in 1996. He is now a Senior Research Scientist in the Australian Bureau of Meteorology. His research interest is mainly focused on understanding dynamical and physical processes governing weather and climate in the Australia-Asiann region, including Australian-Asian monsoons and their interactions, land-surface processes and land-air interactions, and exploring uncertainties in climate change projections. He has led a number of collaborative projects between Bureau of Meteorology and China Meteorological Administration on monsoon and land-surface studies.
