We are a research group, led by Prof. Yi Huang, in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at McGill University.

We mainly study physical climatology, with a focus on atmospheric radiation. We use satellite observations and numerical models to understand how radiative energy, in connection with other physical processes, drives weather and climate variations. We also develop methods that apply radiative measurements to atmospheric remote sensing and climate change monitoring.

We welcome inquiries from prospective graduate and undergraduate students and postdocs about research opportunities. Please contact Prof. Huang by e-mail and enclose your CV and transcripts.
