He advocated the concept of cryosphere science, and built the framework of cryospheric science from the aspect of interaction between cryosphere and other spheres and the adaptive strategies of cryospheric changes. He involved the third, and leaded the fourth and fifth IPCC scientific assessments, particularly the physical science basis of climate change, which made great contributions to a deeper sight into climate change science. As the administrator of China Meteorology Administration, he hosted the Strategy of Chinese Meteorological Service and Development, putting forward the three strategies: public, security and resources oriented meteorology.
