High-impact Weather Prediction Laboratory


관련기사 바로가기

The High Impact Weather Prediction Laboratory is researching and predicting various natural disasters, in particular, high-impact weather (HIW) such as typhoon, heavy snowfall, severe rain storm, heat wave, cold wave and etc. We study not only theoretical basis and mechanism of HIW but also numerical modeling of them.
In particular, our researches focus on the real-time forecast of high-impact weather (HIW) and the investigation of its dynamical and physical processes with observations as well as model results. In addition, future changes in HIW related to climate change are also estimated through dynamical downscaling of climate change scenarios.
