Areas of interest
Wei Xiao’s research concerns the interaction between terrestrial biosphere and atmosphere. Her areas of interest include biometeorology, boundary-layer meteorology, stable isotopic ecology and hydrology. Current projects focus on the greenhouse gases exchange between lake and atmosphere, and the isotopic tracing in carbon and water cycles.
