Curriculum Vitae:

Qing Yue

Dr. Qing Yue's research focuses on understanding the interactions of cloud, atmosphere, and radiation using multi-sensor satellite observations, particularly, she is interested in cloud radiative feedbacks by cloud regimes, planetary boundary layer cloud and cirrus cloud and their relationships with the thermodynamic environment, and identifying and verifying climate processes and variability from observations and climate model simulations/assimilations. She is also interested in spectral and broadband radiative transfer modeling and the application in the satellite remote sensing of cloud. She developed a model to retrieve ice cloud from high-spectral resolution infrared measurements, which has been applied to AIRS Version 6 cloud retrieval.
