The current major focus of my research is in the understanding of the meteorology and air pollution problems in urban and coastal areas like Hong Kong and Pearl River Delta. The techniques used include geophysical data analyses, numerical weather prediction, prognostic flow models, diagnostic models, statistical and case study methods. I am also interested in computational fluid dynamics and turbulence research.

This NWP system, based initially on the MM5 system and subsequently upgraded to WRF, has been in continuous operation at HKUST since 1997. This mesoscale modeling system has been used extensively in our educational and research programs, including the study of wind fields associated with the large-scale monsoon circulation, pre-summer severe rainstorms, typhoons, the regional thermally forced land-sea breeze circulation, the local topographically forced circulation and impact of regional urban built form. It is clear that their team has extensive experience in simulating the wind fields for different meteorological conditions, and at different temporal and spatial scales. Prof. Fung also has extensive experience in applying advanced atmospheric chemistry models (including CMAQ and CAMx) to study air quality over HK and PRD regions.
