BIOGRAPHY:

Tongren Xu current with Faculty of Geographical Sciences, Beijing Normal University. He obtained the PhD. in geography of Beijing Normal University in 2011. He developed variational data assimilation framework based on surface energy balance model and applied over several sites and regions which is important for climate change research, water resource management and planning. He developed a data assimilation framework that improves performances of CLM by assimilating MODIS and GOES satellite land surface temperature data. He also proposed the upscaling framework of evapotranspiration based on machine learning method and ground measurements which misfit the spatial resolution gap between remote sensing ET models and ground measurements. Prof. Xu proposed the verification framework of ET products over regional scale that can assess the products in a more objective way. Prof. Xu published more than 40 papers in these areas.

RESEARCH INTERESTS:
