Jianglong Zhang, Ph.D
Professor Jianglong Zhang is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of North Dakota. He received his Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science and a M.S. in Computer Science at the University of Alabama in Huntsville in the spring of 2004. He also received his M.S. in Atmospheric Science from the University of Alabama in Huntsville in the fall of 2000, and his B.S. in Atmospheric Physics from Peking University, China in the spring of 1992.
During his dissertation research, he interacted extensively with scientists at US Naval Research laboratory in Monterey and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. Upon graduation, he worked as a UCAR visiting scientist at the NRL Marine Meteorology Division in the Aerosol and Radiation Section. Also while in Monterey, he served as a lecturer at California State University at Monterey Bay as well as interacted extensively with students at the Naval Postgraduate School. His recent research has focused on satellite remote sensing of atmospheric aerosols and assimilating these data in near-real time into weather forecast models.
Satellite remote sensing, data assimilation, atmospheric radiation, aerosol prediction, climate change, and aerosol and cloud physics.
