2020 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
2007 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)
His primary scientific interests are in Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Monsoon, East Asian Monsoon and Climate change. William K. M. Lau works on Climatology which deals in particular with Sea surface temperature. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cloud condensation nuclei and Precipitation in addition to Atmospheric sciences.
His study looks at the relationship between Monsoon and topics such as Intertropical Convergence Zone, which overlap with Westerlies, Monsoon of South Asia, Monsoon trough and Subtropical ridge. His work focuses on many connections between Climate change and other disciplines, such as Water cycle, that overlap with his field of interest in Cryosphere, Albedo, Snowpack and Arctic. His Global warming course of study focuses on Aerosol and Sensible heat, Meltwater and Snowmelt.
William K. M. Lau mainly investigates Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Precipitation, Aerosol and Monsoon. His Climatology research incorporates themes from Snow, Meteorology and Climate model. His work is dedicated to discovering how Atmospheric sciences, Atmosphere are connected with Oceanic climate and other disciplines.
In the subject of general Precipitation, his work in Intertropical Convergence Zone is often linked to Atmospheric instability, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His work in Aerosol covers topics such as Smoke which are related to areas like Southern Hemisphere. His work on East Asian Monsoon and Monsoon of South Asia as part of general Monsoon study is frequently linked to South asia and Period, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.
William K. M. Lau mainly focuses on Climatology, Precipitation, Monsoon, Atmospheric sciences and Snow. The concepts of his Climatology study are interwoven with issues in Climate model and Intertropical Convergence Zone. His Precipitation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Sea surface temperature, Troposphere and Coupled model intercomparison project.
William K. M. Lau interconnects Mineral dust, Aerosol and Climate change, Global change in the investigation of issues within Monsoon. The Atmospheric sciences study combines topics in areas such as East Asian Monsoon, Heat wave and Orographic lift. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Albedo and Rossby wave.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Precipitation, Atmospheric sciences, Monsoon, Snow and Climatology. His studies in Precipitation integrate themes in fields like Weather and climate and Troposphere. His research on Atmospheric sciences focuses in particular on Anticyclone.
His work in Monsoon tackles topics such as Water cycle which are related to areas like Asian summer monsoon, Climate change and Orographic lift. The various areas that William K. M. Lau examines in his Snow study include Boreal spring, Heat wave and Anabatic wind. William K. M. Lau has researched Climatology in several fields, including Common spatial pattern and Climate model, Coupled model intercomparison project.
