Clarifying the dynamical processes and characteristics of regional atmospheric phenomena, weather, and climate by means of data analysis and numerical modeling

Research Contents

Regional Environment Laboratory has focused on the regional atmospheric environment.
Air temperature, wind, humidity, precipitation, minor constituents of air are the essential components which make up the atmospheric environment.
The spatial distributions and temporal variations of these components characterize an atmospheric environment in a town-scale region, which people live in.
These spatial and temporal variations are brought about through the influences of various atmospheric phenomena, such as monsoon, extra-tropical cyclones, fronts, sea-land breeze, cumulus convection, turbulence, and so on.
There also exist influences of the global warming and urban heat island circulation caused by human activities.
In this laboratory, atmospheric circulations and transports of energy, momentum, and mass accompanied with regional and local weather and climate are examined through statistical data analysis of various meteorological observations for the last one hundred years and numerical modeling and simulations.
Atmospheric radiative transfer, turbulent mixing, and air-sea or air-land exchange of heat, momentum, and moisture, are also examined, which are important processes in the formation and evolution of local atmospheric circulations.
