The State Key Laboratory of Numerical Modeling for Atmospheric Sciences and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics (LASG) was founded in 1985 and was opened to the public in September of the same year. In 1989, LASG was promoted to a State Key Laboratory. Thanks to the leadership of previous LASG directors, Professors Qingcun Zeng, Guoxiong Wu, Bin Wang and Riyu Lu, and a large collaborative effort of all LASG members, LASG has become an internationally renowned laboratory of atmospheric sciences. LASG was rated a “Top-ranking State Key Laboratory” in seven consecutive national assessments of 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2005, 2010 and 2015. Dr. Ziniu Xiao is the current director of LASG, Professor Chongyin Li is the director of LASG Academic Committee and Prof. Mu Mu is the director of LASG Academic Advisory Committee.

In pursuit of its mission, LASG has identified the following priority research areas: (I) earth system model development and application, (II) weather and climate dynamics, mechanisms of climate changes and anomalies (III) the predictability of weather and climate, advanced theories and methods of climate prediction and (IV) macro evolution and mechanism of geophysical fluid. Consequently, four research groups have been established, with each group in charge of a specific research area.
 
Over the 30 years' persistent and diligent efforts, LASG will advance with times and innovate constantly. It is committed to becoming the world-class research center for the Atmospheric Sciences and training base for the talents. In the future, LASG will keep realizing self-transcendence and work hard for ranking among the international front.
