City University of Hong Kong

Professor Wen ZHOU (third from left) and her team members

There are 5 Post-docs, 6 postgraduate students, 4 final-year students (as in December 2021)

“Our research area centers on the monsoon climate of East Asia, tropical intraseasonal oscillations, and the different types of El Niño and their effects on climate.”

“We aim to understand the variability and predictability of the East Asian winter/summer monsoon and to detect and attribute climate variability and climate extremes over the Asia-Pacific region.”

“We also look to advance our understanding of natural hazards such as flood and drought, cold surges and heat waves, and sea level rise and storm surge over the Asia-Pacific region and how these relate with different climate drivers in both present and future scenarios.”
