报告人：美国布鲁克海文国家实验室 Yangang Liu教授
报告人介绍： Yangang Liu is a Senior Scientist and Leader of the Climate and Process Modeling group. His scientific interests have been centering on atmospheric particle systems (aerosols, clouds and precipitation, associated processes and interactions with Earth’s climate. Research spans over a wide spectrum of topics, including aerosol/cloud physics, turbulence, light scattering, radiative transfer, remote sensing, and climate (change). Current research concentrates on development and evaluation of cloud-related parameterizations for models of various scales (from large eddy simulations to cloud-resolving models to numerical weather production models to climate models), and on the effects of aerosols on climate and climate change. Research activities combine development, application, and integration of theory, modeling, and observations. A related interest is to consider particle systems as special examples of broader multiscale complex systems, and seek to quantify fluctuations and explore theories as applied to such complex systems. Research has resulted in 102 peer-reviewed publications in prestigious journals like Nature, Nature-Geo, and Physical Review Letter. Work has been featured by Nature News, American Physical Society, American Institute of Physics, American Geophysical Union, DOE Office of Science, and various news media.
