• Atmospheric gravity waves
• Dynamic coupling between the troposphere and stratosphere through clouds and waves
• Satellite remote sensing of cloud properties
Dr. Jie Gong received her B.S. degree from Peking University in 2005, and her Ph.D. degree in atmospheric science from State University of New York at Stony Brook in 2009. Her Ph.D. work was to study atmospheric gravity waves and their impact on general circulations. After finishing her Ph.D. work, she joined Jet Propulsion Laboratory as a postdoc, working on gravity waves and clouds observed from various satellite measurements. Her research interests range from atmospheric dynamics to satellite remote sensing. She joined GESTAR in March 2012, working on small-scale structures inside clouds and cloud ice retrieval from AMSU, MLS and AIRS.
