About this book

Coupled climate system models are of central importance for climate studies. A new model known as FGOALS ( the Flexible Global Ocean-Atmosphere-Land System model), has been developed by the Sate Key Laboratory of Numerical Modeling for Atmospheric Sciences and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (LASG/IAP, CAS), a first-tier national geophysical laboratory. It serves as a powerful tool, both for deepening our understanding of fundamental mechanisms of the climate system and for making decadal prediction and scenario projections of future climate change. "Flexible Global Ocean-Atmosphere-Land System Model: A Modeling Tool for the Climate Change Research Community” is the first book to offer systematic evaluations of this model’s performance. It is comprehensive in scope, covering both developmental and application-oriented aspects of this climate system model. It also provides an outlook of future development of FGOALS and offers an overview of how to employ the model. It represents a valuable reference work for researchers and professionals working within the related areas of climate variability and change. Prof. Tianjun Zhou, Yongqiang Yu, Yimin Liu and Bin Wang work at LASG, the Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China.

About the authors

1. Prof Tianjun Zhou, Prof Yongqiang Yu, Prof. Yimin Liu and Prof. Bin Wang are all senior scientists/modelers, and  PhD advisors in the State Key Laboratory of Numerical Modeling for Atmospheric Sciences and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics (LASG), Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IAP), Chinese Academy of Sciences. They have been devoted to studies on coupled atmosphere-ocean modeling and climate dynamics, numerical modeling of climate change, air-sea interaction and Asian-Australian monsoon predictability for more than 15 years. They are also active in the international model inter-comparison and development activities. Prof. Tianjun Zhou is a lead author of IPCC WG1 AR5 and a member of GEWEX Radiation Panel (GRP), GEWEX/WCRP and Asian-Australian Monsoon Panel (AAMP), CLIVAR/WCRP. Prof. Bin Wang is a member of Working Group on Numerical Experimentation (WGNE)/WCRP.

Prof. Tianjun Zhou received his PhD degree from Peking University and did his Post Doc in Laboratoire de Meteorologie Dynamique (LMD), CNRS, France and Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences and has been working in LASG/IAP since 2001. He has been a visiting scientist at many world renowned climate research institute including Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center and Geophysical Institute of Bergen University (Norway), National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR, USA) and Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH, Switzerland).
He has published many peer-reviewed papers. Some of his recent publication is as follows:
