He has been involved in basic and high-tech research in various fields of atmospheric science, solar-terrestrial physics, as well as earth observation and global change research. In 1960s, mainly involved in thunderstorm and atmospheric radio emission study, Since 1970s, involving in lidar atmospheric remote sensing of aerosol distribution and boundary layer structure, as well as atmospheric visibility. Since 1975, involving in microwave remote sensing with both developing ground-based MW radiometer for field observation as well as space-borne MW remote sensing retrieval method. In 1980, he firstly suggested the principle of combined active and passive microwave remote sensing for precipitation distribution and established an iterative solution for combined remote sensing equations.
