Mr TAN Wee Leng

Mr Tan Wee Leng is part of the team that works on seasonal and subseasonal climate prediction. His work in CCRS is on the development of platforms and products on seasonal and subseasonal climate prediction to Singapore and the region, with focus on the usage of the prediction outcome for potentially new area of applications. He is also involved in the usage of remote sensing products, with interest in satellite-based estimates of rainfall for weather and climate extremes.
