Yoo-Jeong Noh received her BSc in Atmospheric Science from Yonsei University and MS in Environmental Engineering (Environmental heat transfer/fluid mechanics) from Pohang University of Science and Technology. She had professional experiences on precipitation analysis using TRMM and surface observations, and numerical modeling (WRF and MM5) while working at the Meteorological Research Institute/Korea Meteorological Administration and the Global Environment Laboratory/Yonsei University in Korea. After receiving her PhD degree in Meteorology from Florida State University in 2006, she joined CIRA and continues to work on satellite precipitation measurements and mixed-phase clouds as a Research Scientist following her two year postdoc research. Her areas of research interest include developing precipitation algorithms using active/passive microwave satellite data and surface observations, radiative transfer modeling, and studies on mixed-phase clouds using multi-satellite and aircraft observations.
GOES-R proxy radiance data study: Generate GOES-R ABI synthetic imagery using CIRA radiative transfer model and CRTM from WRF simulations.
JPSS VIIRS CAL/VAL: Validate VIIRS cloud base height products with CloudSat for various cloud types and produce matchup data.
A snowfall retrieval algorithm development based on Bayes’ theorem using high frequency microwave satellite data: In constructing a-priori database, we used a large number of snowfall profiles observed from both satellite (CloudSat) and surface radars (NEXRAD). In the radiative transfer calculations, atmospheric sounding profiles and liquid water information in clouds are obtained from aircraft measurements during the C3VP/CLEX-10 field experiment and WRF simulations. The scattering properties of the snowflakes are used from the calculations based on realistic nonspherical shapes using discrete dipole approximation.
