Welcome to Dr. Zong-Liang Yang's Land Environment and Atmospheric Dynamics Group at UT-Austin. The LEAD group consists of graduate research assistants, postdoctoral fellows, research scientists and visiting scholars. We view the earth system in a holistic way, linking the atmosphere, ocean, biosphere, cryosphere, and solid earth as an integrated system. We use powerful methodologies such as satellite remote sensing and supercomputing simulations which are now profoundly changing research in earth system sciences. We place a strong emphasis on the societal impact of the research in earth system sciences. See Dr. Yang's talk entitled "Why IS Land at the Central Stage for Weather and Climate?" Specifically, we are working to answer a wide variety of earth science questions below.
