ESSIC scientist Jing Wei is the winner of the Remote Sensing 2023 Young Investigator Award.
Distinguished University Professor (DUP) Zhanqing Li has received a Fulbright Specialist Program award, a prestigious honor bestowed by the U.S. Department of State and the Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board to support Dr. Li’s month-long visit of the Universite de Lille in Lille, France, where he will be collaborating on studies concerning air pollution and interactions with global climate changes by means of remote sensing and AI techniques.
Congratulations to ESSIC Scientist Can Li, the newest recipient of CMNS’ Distinguished Research Scientist Prize.
Recently, researchers from NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction (NCWCP) and University of Maryland gathered for a mini-conference to share presentations from recent conferences such as the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and American Meteorological Society (AMS) annual meetings.
Jing Wei has been appointed an Associate Editor for the journal JGR: Atmospheres of the American Geophysical Union (AGU). As an Associate Editor, Wei will maintain and improve the quality of the journal, facilitate a timely review process, and assist the editor to solicit important and thought-provoking articles. JGR: Atmospheres (IF = 5.22) publishes original research articles that advance and improve the understanding of atmospheric properties and processes, including the interaction of the atmosphere with other components of the Earth system, as well as their roles in climate variability and change.
The annual meeting of the ESSIC Aerosol/Cloud Physics/Radiation Affinity Group was held on November 16. It was led by Dr. Zhanqing Li, the group chair.
ESSIC/CISESS Scientist Lauren Zamora is first author on a new paper in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics titled “Comparisons between the distributions of dust and combustion aerosols in MERRA-2, FLEXPART, and CALIPSO and implications for deposition freezing over wintertime Siberia”.
