Research interests and objects

Dr. Haibo Bi has been mainly engaged in the research of Arctic sea ice variability using a wide variety of remote sensing observations from multiple satellite platforms. The coupling mechanism between atmospheric activity and Arctic sea ice variability is identified. To be specific, he examined the relative role of different large-scale atmospheric circulation, including Arctic Oscillation (AO), North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), and the Arctic Diploe (AD), on sea ice export via Fram Strait. Also, he conducted the study of Baffin Bay sea ice export and assessed the modulation mechanism due to synoptic weather forcing such as cyclones. For the first time, the coupling association between winter clouds and summer sea ice in Antarctic was outlined. Recently, Dr. Bi made an attempt to investigate the annual cycles of multiyear sea ice coverage in Arctic Ocean from spaceborne scatterometer observations, with a further aim to identify the linkage with large-scale atmospheric circulations and cyclones. Besides, the influences of different PDO phases on the variability in recent popular Arctic summer anticyclones and the satellite-observed sea ice extent in the Pacific side of the Arctic Ocean are explored.

In past five years (2016-2020), more than 20 papers related to the study of Dr. Bi were published in peer-reviewed international journals, including Cryosphere, Journal of Geophysical Research-Atmosphere, IEEE JSTARS, et al. Meanwhile, Dr. Bi serves as one of the reviewers for some international journals (such as Journal of Climate, Journal of Geophysical Research-Oceans, Remote Sensing, Geophysical Research Letters, et al.). Additionally, Dr. Bi leads the international cooperation with Prof. Jinlun Zhang from the Polar Science Center, University of Washington.
