Hailong Wang has wide-ranging research expertise in atmospheric aerosols, cloud physics and dynamics, aerosol-cloud-precipitation-climate interactions, light-absorbing impurities in snowpack and sea ice, radiative feedbacks, and high-latitude climate change and its associated impacts. His research has generated important scientific discoveries and advanced our fundamental understanding of the role of aerosols in various critical components of Earth’s climate system. This includes the diurnal evolution of shallow cumulus, mesoscale organizations of marine stratocumulus, marine boundary-layer ship-track formation and cloud brightening, cryosphere surface albedo, monsoon precipitation, and regional circulations. Dr. Wang’s recent research also made breakthroughs in the cause and impact of Arctic warming, sea ice and snow loss, and other Arctic environmental changes.
