This week's seminar is the second panel discussion in the HAS Parade of Stars series. Our panelists will discuss the current knowledge gaps in the Aerosols, Clouds, and Precipitation fields and introduce their efforts to fill these knowledge gaps. In detail, Dr. Dong will introduce his innovative research in aerosols, clouds, radiation, precipitation, and their interactions from ground-based and satellite remote sensing. Dr. Sorooshian will introduce his research in air quality and aerosol-cloud-precipitation-meteorology interactions and discuss his innovative exploration of integrating aerosols research into medical research. Dr. Behrangi will discuss using diverse data sets, including satellite, airborne, in situ, reanalysis, and climate models, to estimate and analyze high latitude precipitation and the water cycle. Finally, our panelists will discuss potential opportunities of applying deep learning in advancing study in Aerosols, Clouds, and Precipitation.
