CSC PhD project – China Scholarship Council: The causality and forecasts of East Asian extreme heatwaves: from the perspective of mid-latitude circulations
This PhD project is funded by the China Scholarship Council (CSC) with a focus on improving the predictability of mid-latitude forcings behind East Asian heatwaves. Under the backdrop of the greenhouse effect, increased extreme heatwaves over East Asia have increasingly severe influences on human health, agricultural yield, and ecosystem balance. This research aims at improving our understanding of mid-latitude circulation in bridging concurrent European, American, and East Asian heatwaves, as well as the causal effects of mid-latitude circum-global teleconnection pattern on East Asian surface temperature, thereby enhancing seasonal-to-sub seasonal heatwaves prediction over East Asia in the changing climate.
