Zhibo Zhang's primary research interest is in cloud and aerosol remote sensing, which aims to quantify global cloud and aerosol optical and microphysical properties using remote sensing technologies, and thereby establish observational-based correlations between the properties of clouds and environmental factors, such as aerosol, water vapor and precipitation. His research is motivated by the fact that the current understanding of clouds, especially with regard to how clouds are connected to the environment and how clouds change with global warming, is highly limited, which has become the major obstacle hampering climate change predictions.
