Curriculum Vitae:

Qing Yue

  • Ph.D, Atmospheric Sciences, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), USA (2009)
  • M.S., Atmospheric Sciences, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) (2005)
  • B.S., Atmospheric Sciences, Peking University, Beijing, China (2003)

Research Interests
  • Satellite remote sensing of clouds: Study the properties of different cloud types by using collocated and coincident satellite data from multiple sensors.
  • Broadband and spectral radiative transfer: Theoretical radiative transfer in the cloudy atmosphere and gaseous absorption.
  • Interaction of radiation, clouds, and atmospheric water vapor: Study the responses of radiation field to cloud micro- and macro-physical properties in a changing climate; the characteristics of ambient atmosphere especially water vapor associated with different cloud scenarios; the sensitivity of cloud properties to radiation. Maritime boundary layer cloud from satellite and reanalysis data and satellite observation bias.
  • Radiative properties of cirrus clouds: from satellite and field campaigns and their application in regional and global climate modeling.
  • The effect of clouds on the energy balance of earth-atmosphere system: Globally and regionally.
