- To develop general circulation models for understanding the interactive three-dimensional radiative-dynamical-chemical-hydrological structure of the climate system from the surface and troposphere to the upper stratosphere and mesosphere on various time and space scales
- To employ meteorological observations in conjunction with models for diagnostic analyses of atmospheric processes, and for evaluating and improving parameterizations employed in weather and climate models.
- To model the interactions between clouds, convection, radiation and large-scale dynamics and understand their roles in climate and climate change.
- To model the physics, chemistry and transport of atmospheric trace gases and aerosols; to investigate the impact of future emissions on regional and global air quality; and to investigate the regional and global climatic effects due to changes in natural and anthropogenic radiatively-active species
