Jing Zhang is a Professor of Atmospheric Sciences at Department of Physics, North Carolina A&T State University.

Research Interests

Jing Zhang's research focus on regional climate and weather studies. Recent and ongoing research projects include: dynamic downscaling for glacier/ice-sheet impact studies, regional reanalysis for the Arctic coast, mesoscale wind flows over complex terrain, Arctic circulation, cyclones, and poleward moisture transport, land/ice/snow surface processes and interactions with the atmosphere including the development of a snow/ice enhanced WRF-ice model, and real-time weather forecast.
