Dr. Chung-Lin Shie received B.S. in Atmospheric Sciences from National Taiwan University, and M.S. and Ph.D. in Meteorology from PSU and FSU, respectively. He started working at NASA/GSFC since early 1993, first as a Research Meteorologist at SSAI. He later joined UMBC/GEST in 2001 as an Associate Research Scientist. Still actively associated with GSFC, Dr. Shie is currently affiliated with UMBC/JCET. During his early career, Dr. Shie had played a crucial role in assisting his late mentor Dr. S.-H. Chou successfully establishing their pioneering project in producing GSSTF (Goddard Satellite-based Surface Turbulent Fluxes) datasets. The GSSTF1 and GSSTF2 datasets were thus distributed by NASA GES DISC in 2000 and 2001, respectively. Dr. Shie has resumed the GSSTF project since early 2008 by winning a NASA MEaSUREs proposal. He and his collaborators have thus successfully developed and issued a series of improved air-sea turbulent fluxes datasets, i.e., GSSTF2b, GSSTF2c, and GSSTF3 in Oct 2010, Oct 2011, and June 2012, respectively. Dr. Shie has also involved in diverse research interests and projects (mainly funded by the NASA Programs) in recent years. He once involved in research projects performing numerical simulations (using the GCE model) and scientific analysis for studying radiative-convective systems and their interactions with large-scale environment. Other NASA projects involved include (i) TCSP and EOS: investigating the Saharan Air Layer (SAL) impacts on Atlantic hurricane formation and intensification; (ii) NAMMA: focusing on the SAL's dust impact, yet more on regional storm systems; (iii) NEWS: using GCE model simulations to build up look-up tables for improving satellite latent heating profile retrieval.
