Welcome to Dr. Guiling Wang's Hydroclimatology and Biosphere-Atmosphere Interactions Lab at UConn. The mission of our lab is to understand and quantify the terrestrial hydrological cycle, its variability, changes, and interactions with the society. With a special focus on water, our research spans the disciplines of climate and atmospheric sciences, hydrology, and plant ecology. We take an earth system approach, viewing the Earth’s biosphere, atmosphere, and hydrosphere as dynamically coupled components linked through water, energy, and CO2 exchanges. Our research relies on models of various nature and complexity as well as satellite remote sensing and ground-based observational data. Recent research topics include vegetation-precipitation interactions at seasonal, inter-annual, and decadal-centennial time scales; agricultural land use adaptation to and impact on regional climate; climate change impact on water resources and food security; and hydrological extremes including drought and flood.
Congratulations to Amir Erfanian! His new ensemble approach to regional climate modeling
(Ensemble-based Reconstructed Forcing, ERF) has been published in GRL:
