Seung-Ki Min

Research Scientist - Climate change detection and analysis

CURRENT S&T / RESEARCH - Contributing to improved understanding of observed climate changes and projection of future climate changes

  • Understand and attribute the causes of observed global and regional climate changes
  • Search for possible human Influence on climate extremes
  • Develop and apply advanced statistical approaches for climate research
  • Construct future projections of climate change and assess their uncertainties


Member - International Detection and Attribution Group (IDAG)

Associate Editor - Journal of Climate

Session co-convener - "Detection and attribution of climate change" (10th International Meeting on Statistical Climatology IMSC, Beijing 2007), "Regional-scale climate change: detection, attribution, and prediction" (AGU Joint Assembly, Toronto 2009), "Bayesian statistics for climate research" (11th IMSC, Edinburgh 2010)

Participated in the IPCC AR4 coupled climate model experiments (with the ECHO-G model)
