Chinese Academy of Meteorological Sciences has made progresses in five key fields



On April 28, the China Meteorological Administration (CMA) held an assessment meeting on the Chinese Academy of Meteorological Sciences (CAMS) in the period of 2008-2011. In the last four years, great progresses have been made in five key fields: monitor and forecast research for disastrous weather; research for Global/Regional Assimilation and Prediction System (GRAPES); East Asia monsoon variation mechanism and the effect to China climate; atmosphere composition, its effect to weather & climate and chemical weather numerical system research; and applied meteorological research. 


During the 11th five-year plan period, the national key research programs and sector founded programs have achieved great progresses. In 2008-2011, the researchers of CAMS published 1203 thesises, among which 387 thesises came from SCI/EI. Theory and Method Research for Monitor and Prediction of Floods induced by Heavy Rain in Southern China, a national key research program, was checked and accepted by the Ministry of Science and Technology with an Excellent rate and was listed as the national major science & technology achievement. China Atmospheric Aerosol and its Climate Effects, one of the national key research programs entered the national major science & technology achievements exhibition as the third place of the resources and environment category.


To promote the meteorological science & technology innovation, CMA carries out assessment of CAMS in every four years. (May 3)
