Lin Lin

Lin Lin, PhD, is an Assistant Research Scientist at the Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center (ESSIC) of the University of Maryland. She received her B.S. degree from the Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology (NUIST), Nanjing, China, in 2002, and her Masters and Ph.D. degrees in meteorology from Florida State University (FSU), Tallahassee, FL, USA, in 2005 and 2009, respectively. Her research interests include: Calibration ofspaceborne microwave radiometers, i.e., the advanced technology microwave sounder (ATMS); Intercalibration of the ATMS TDR/SDR data using both the Global Positioning System (GPS) Radio Occultation (RO) data and Department of Energy (DOE) Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) radiosonde data at Southern Great Plains (SGP) site; Simulation of ATMS brightness temperatures using Community Radiative Transfer Model (CRTM) and Monochromatic Radiative Transfer Model (MonoRTM); Implementation of direct assimilation of microwave radiometers (e.g., ATMS, SSMIS, AMSR2, and et al) into the hurricane weather research and forecast (HWRF) model and analysis of the impact of direct microwave radiances assimilation on the hurricane forecast; Development of cloud detection algorithms using Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (SNPP) Cross-track Infrared Sounder (CrIS) double CO2 bands; Modification of quality control techniques for improving the use of satellite microwave and infrared data in HWRF; Evaluation of impact of direct assimilation of microwave radiances on hurricane forecast; and Comparison of simulation of cloudy radiances simulations with different scattering lookup tables (LUTs) using collocated GMIDPR dataset, etc.
