  Yaoming Ma got his PhD in Atmospheric Physics from Okayama University in 2001 and in Environment Science from Wageningen University in 2006. In 2004, he joined the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research (ITP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), and worked as a professor in ITP/CAS. He is also Deputy Director of ITP/CAS and Director of the Qomolangma Station for Atmospheric and Environmental Observation and Research (QOMS), CAS. As an atmospheric boundary layer researcher, he has been actively involved in many land surface experiments in China. He has also been actively involved in the GEWEX Asia Monsoon Experiment on the Tibetan Plateau (GAME/Tibet, 1996-2000) for its entire duration. He was coordinating the participation of Chinese team in the GAME/Tibet. He is also one of the overall coordinators of Coordinated Enhanced Observing Period (CEOP) Asian-Australian Monsoon Project (CAMP) on the Tibetan Plateau (CAMP/Tibet, 2001-2010). He is still in charge of the long term atmospheric-land interaction monitoring on the Tibetan Plateau. His 50 papers have been published in the international journals. He is also the Winner of Outstanding Young Scientists for Meteorological Sciences and Technology, 2006, by China Meteorological Administration (CMA) and the Winner of Outstanding Young Scientists, 2008, by National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC). As a scientific researcher, except his domestic research work, he cooperated with the foreign scientists on atmospheric boundary layer and the application of satellite remote sensing. His cooperative institutions and universities are including Alterra (SC-DLO), Wageningen University and Research Center (WUR) and International Institute for Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) (The Netherlands), University of Tokyo, Nagoya University, Kyoto University, Tsukuba University and Okayama University (Japan) etc.
