Likun Wang received a B.S. degree in Atmospheric Sciences in 1996 and an M.S. degree in Meteorology from Peking University, Beijing, China in 1999, and a Ph.D. degree in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, in 2004. From 2004 to 2005, he worked on lidar/radar remote sensing of clouds as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Maryland, College Park. He is currently an Assistant Research Scientist with Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center/Cooperative Institute for Climate and Satellites (ESSIC/CICS) in support of satellite sensor calibration and validation program for National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). His current research interests are improving accuracy and preciseness of satellite measurements and products through calibration and validation efforts and recalibrating NOAA’s historic satellite data records to create consistent homogeneous long-term satellite measurements for climate studies.
