The “Atmospheric Sciences Discipline” (ASD) is one of the seven disciplines under the“Earth Sciences, Sustainable Development and Disaster Reduction Section” under the Departmentof Natural Sciences and Sustainable Development of MOST (Ministry of Science and Technology).A researcher is invited to be the coordinator of the ASD. The responsibility of coordinator includes:1) managing the peer review process for the research project and award applications; 2) reviewingthe funding application for attending international conference meetings, short-term visit ofinternational scholars, and research positions; 3) attending the coordinators’ meeting and assistingthe planning and advancement of MOST’s missions. The focal topics of ASD include climatevariability and changes, torrential rain, typhoon, regional circulation, atmospheric environment, aswell as space and upper-atmosphere physics. Climate variability and climate changes are keycomponents of CLIVAR 、GEWEX and IPCC projects under the World MeteorologicalOrganization (WMO) and United Nation; whereas torrential rain, typhoon and regional circulationare main themes of studies on disastrous weather events for WWRP (WMO) and USWRP (UnitedStates). Atmospheric environment studies, which emphasis on air pollution and environmentalchanges, have received worldwide interests. Studies on solar, inter-planets, magnetosphere andionosphere in Taiwan continued to earn reputation internationally, and the launching ofFORMOSAT-3 constellation of satellites further stimulated international attention. All these topicsare valued by many advanced countries (USA. Japan, and Europe), and thus provide incentive forASD researchers to promote international collaboration.
