美国加州圣何塞州立大学Dr. Minghui Diao学术报告

报告题目:Clouds and aerosols: linking aircraft measurements, satellite observations and model simulations

报告人:Dr. Minghui Diao

报告地点:科研楼402会议室

报告时间:2018年6月22日(星期五)上午10:00

Abstract:

Clouds and aerosols are two key components in the Earth’s atmosphere. A key step towards an improved understanding of clouds and aerosols is linking observations with simulations. For the first part of this seminar, I will talk about the comparisons between in-situ aircraft observations and climate model simulations of the NCAR Community Atmosphere Model version 5 (CAM5). Specifically, I will focus on cloud microphysics and relative humidity distributions over the Southern Ocean. The second part of this seminar will showcase the applications of satellite observations of aerosol optical depth (AOD) for assisting air pollution management in the Bay Area in California. Surface-level PM2.5 concentrations will be derived from satellite AOD, which complement the existing ground-based monitor measurements.

Biography

Dr. Minghui Diao is a tenure-track Assistant Professor at the Department of Meteorology and Climate Science at San Jose State University in California, USA. She received her B.S. and Ph.D. degrees at Peking University and Princeton University, respectively. Her research interests include using in-situ and remote sensing observations of clouds and aerosols to improve model simulations on various scales. Some of the awards that she received include the NCAR ASP Postdoc Fellowship, NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship, and the Francis Upton Fellowship at Princeton University (the highest graduate fellowship given by the School of Engineering and Applied Mathematics).
