Yunpeng is interested in four research areas: (1) the cloud microphysics scheme developed for the mesoscale and global-scale models, (2) the observational and modeling studies of aerosol-cloud interaction, (3) model development for green energy forecast, and (4) combination between the sub-grid convective cloud scheme with the cloud microphysical scheme. Because the understanding of the fine-scale cloud evolution must begin with the fundamental microphysics of cloud and aerosol particles, Yunpeng improved parameterizations of various aerosol and cloud-related processes (e.g. cloud droplet coalescence, aerosol wet removal, and rain droplet sedimentation). Yunpeng has developed a new triple-moment cloud microphysical scheme with explicit treatment of rain droplets and an improved aerosol wet removal scheme for the convective clouds in the CAM model. Since Yunpeng joined the climate and process modeling group at BNL, he has been focused primarily on the application of cloud microphysical scheme and turbulence scheme in the mesoscale model to improve the green energy forecast.
