    Dr. Daeho Jin is a scientist who has been working with Dr. Lazaros Oreopolous at the Climate and Radiation Laboratory (Code 613) at NASA/GSFC since September 2013. He received his B.Sc. in the Department of Atmospheric Science, Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea in February 2003, and received his Ph.D. in the Department of Climate Dynamics, George Mason University, Fairfax, VA in May 2008. He has examined climate variability including ENSO, MJO, Monsoon, etc., as well as the effect of air-sea coupling on climate system. He also has been involved in Marine Bio-Physical Interaction associated with MJO. His current research is focused on the micro-physics scheme in GEOS-5 AGCM, i.e. evaluating and improving the cloud simulation performance.

    Research Interests

    cloud-precipitation relationship

    cloud-precipitation relationship with co-located datasets

    Cloud simulation performance of GEOS-5 model

    1. Validating the model's performance by developing advanced diagnostics using COSP (CFMIP Observation Simulator Project) simulators. 
    2. Improving micropysics scheme for the better cloud simulation performance of GEOS-5 model.

    Current Projects

    Assessing and Evaluating model performance of cloud and precipitation simulation

    The first objective of the current research is to examine the observational properties of cloud and precipitation relationship, based on the concept of "Cloud Regime." The second objective is to assess the upcoming CMIP6 models based on the observations of cloud-precipitation relationship.
