Zhang - MesoLab

JING ZHANG (NCAT) is an Associate Professor of Atmospheric
Sciences at Department of Physics and Energy and Environmental
Systems at North Carolina A&T State University. Her research interests
lie in weather and climate studies by the means of numerical modeling
and data analysis. Specifically, her recent and ongoing research studies
include: mesoscale wind field study of the Arctic marginal ice zone off
Alaska Coast; data assimilation and its application for regional reanalysis;
regional climate modeling and downscaling for environmental impact
study, such as the responses of glacier mass balance to future climate and
the social vulnerability to climate change in the coastal zone; stormactivity-induced atmosphere-sea ice-ocean interactions and their upscaling contribution to
climate change; vegetation-land-air interactions and climate impacts of greening north; and the
Arctic circulation change. Dr. Zhang received her Ph.D. degree in Atmospheric Sciences from
Peking University and her M.S. and B.S. degrees in Atmospheric Sciences from Nanjing
University. Before Dr. Zhang joined NCAT she was a research assistant professor of
Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. E-mail: [email protected]
