Fields of interest
Dr. Dong L. Wu is a research scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). His research interests include remote sensing of atmospheric dynamics and clouds, and sun-climate connection. For the sun-climate connection studies, his research has been focusing on impacts of the 11-year and 27-day variations in solar forcing on the upper and middle atmospheric dynamics and chemistry. The data analyses include uses of satellite measurements from Aura/MLS, Odin/SMR, TIMED/SABER, and GPS radio occultation, MERRA reanalysis, and simulations from WACCM.

Impacts of solar forcing and variability on Earth's atmosphere and climate. Uses of satellite data (MLS, SORCE, AIRS, GPS, AMSU/SSU) and model simulations (WACCM, GISS) to identify, characterize and understand Sun-Earth connection processes.
