Assistant Professor, Department of Watershed Sciences
Utah State University, USA
Jiming Jin received a B.S in meteorology from Nanjing University of Information Science & Technology, P. R. China, and an M.S and Ph.D. in atmospheric sciences from Chinese Academy of Sciences. He also received a Ph.D. in hydrology and water resources with a minor in remote sensing and spatial analysis from the University of Arizona in 2002. Then he worked for the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory first as a postdoctoral researcher and then as a scientist before joining the Departments of Watershed Sciences and Plants, Soils and Climate, Utah State University. He still holds a guest scientist position at the Berkeley Laboratory. Jin’s research is focused on numerical modeling and analysis for surface hydrology, irrigation and land use change, regional weather and climate.
Surface hydrology modeling
The impact of climate on agricultural irrigation practices and how irrigation affects local climate
Regional weather and climate modeling and prediction
The interactions between the land surface and atmosphere
