Professor Jianping Huang

Areas of interest

Dr.  Jianping Huang specializes in numerical modeling study of air quality and meteorology.  His research interests include tropospheric ozone, smoggy boundary layer, vegetation-atmosphere interactions, and air quality (e.g., surface O3 and PM2.5).  He has successfully incorporated a gas-phase chemistry mechanism, CBMZ into WRF/Chem, coupled a land-surface model with a large-eddy simulation (LES) model, and applied advanced bias correction approaches to improve NOAA PM2.5 predictions for the US.
