Chun Lei Liu

I am a senior research fellow in the Department of Meteorology, University of Reading.

My research is focused on the climate change, particularly on the Earth system energy budget and the water cycle change in the warming climate. I combine the satellite and surface observations with reanalysis and climate model simulations to extract the useful information and study the mechnisms, in order to have better understanding of the climate change.

I am currently working on the SMURPHS and DEEP-C projects. My latest publications are listed below. Some earlier publications can be found from the University CENTAUR system and old publications can be found here.
