Professor Fuzhong Weng received his PhD degree in 1992 from Department of Atmospheric Sciences, Colorado State University. He is a fellow of American Meteorological Society and a professor in Chinese Academy of Meteorological Sciences, Co-chief editor of Journal of Meteorological Research and Associate Editor of Journal of IEEE Geoscience Remote Sensing. His major research areas include radiative transfer, satellite remote sensing, satellite data assimilation and instrument calibration. During 2002-2005, he was appointed as the Deputy Director and Chief Scientist of US Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation (JCSDA). From 2005-2010, he was the chief of satellite calibration and data assimilation branch at NOAA/NESDIS. From 2011-2017, he was appointed as the Chief of Satellite Meteorology and Climatology Division, Center for Satellite Applications and Research, NOAA/NESDIS. He was the Director of the Coordination Center, hosted by the Branch, of WMO’s Global Space-based Intercalibration System (GSICS). Among his many honors are NOAA’s highest award, the Department of Commerce Gold Medal, for developing techniques to assimilate advanced satellite observations into computerized models that significantly improve weather forecasting. He was also the first recipient of the NOAA’s David Johnson Award, presented annually by the National Space Club to recognize achievements of young professionals in the U.S. who have shown an outstanding innovation in the use of satellite data for operational environmental applications. He has published more than 300 peer-reviewed articles and 9 book chapters on remote sensing sciences. In 2017, he also published a book on passive microwave remote sensing of the earth for meteorological applications in Wiley Series in Atmospheric Physics and Remote Sensing.
