Prof. Jingfeng Wang
Dr. Wang received undergraduate, master and doctoral degree in theoretical mechanics, fluid mechanics and hydrometeorology, respectively. One of his primary research interests is in understanding and modeling the water-energy-carbon cycles in the Earth system. He has been working for years to develop innovative theories and modeling tools for monitoring and modeling water, energy and carbon fluxes at the earth-atmosphere interface including land surfaces and oceans. He pioneered the applications of fractional calculus and maximum entropy production principle in hydrometeorology. Another major topic of his research is numerical modeling and statistical analysis of regional climate due to deforestation induced land-cover change in the Amazon using remote sensing observations. He has been doing fundamental research on turbulence in the atmospheric boundary layer, unsaturated zone hydrology, sampling network design, Bayesian probability theory, etc.
