Rosenstiel School of Marine, Atmospheric and Earth Science, University of Miami
Chong Jia is Ph.D. student in Meteorology and Physical Oceanography at the Rosenstiel School of Marine, Atmospheric and Earth Science, University of Miami. Chong holds a Bachelor of Science from Ocean University of China and a Master of Science from the Rosenstiel School of Marine, Atmospheric and Earth Science, Univeristy of Miami. His professional background centres around physical oceanography, satellite remote sensing and air-sea interaction. Chong’s expertise and research interests lie within satellite SST retrievals (error budget analysis, algorithm improvement) at high latitudes, ocean skin effect and diurnal warming studies at high latitudes.
Chong is currently participating in the Multi-sensor Improved Sea-Surface Temperature (MISST) project and using the SST and other meteorological data from Saildrone vehicles to study the upper ocean thermal stratifications and validate the satellite SST retrievals at high latitudes.
The first time Chong became involved with GHRSST was in 2019. His advisor, fellow GHRSST Science Team member, Peter Minnett, presented their research work at the 20th GHRSST International Science Team Meeting held in Frascati, Italy. For Chong, the best thing about being part of the GHRSST Science Team is to communicate with and learn from other members, widening his research experience. At the same time, the community gives him more opportunities to share his research to the GHRSST Community and disseminate it more widely. Chong himself is an early-career scientist and is still learning a lot. For other early-career scientists, his advice would be to have determination and always keep an open mind.
