Pengfei Zhang

Senior Research Associate

My research focuses on the quantitative precipitation estimation (QPE) by using dual polarimetric radar measurements. I have involved in developing an operational QPE algorithm utilizing specific attenuation for CONUS in MRMS (Multi-Radar Multi-Sensor) system. I am also working on radar data quality control, hydrometeor classification, and radar data analysis.
