Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Geometry
  • Climate change
  • Mechanics

His primary areas of investigation include Climatology, Finite volume method, Classical mechanics, Ocean current and Geometry. His Climatology study combines topics in areas such as Atmospheric sciences, Climate model and Earth system science. His work carried out in the field of Finite volume method brings together such families of science as Grid, Mathematical analysis and Curvilinear coordinates.

His work in Mathematical analysis covers topics such as Pressure-correction method which are related to areas like MIT General Circulation Model and Navier–Stokes equations. His studies deal with areas such as Mechanics and Isopycnal as well as Classical mechanics. His study on World Ocean Circulation Experiment is often connected to Temperature salinity diagrams as part of broader study in Ocean current.

His most cited work include:

  • A finite-volume, incompressible Navier Stokes model for studies of the ocean on parallel computers (1680 citations)
  • Hydrostatic, quasi‐hydrostatic, and nonhydrostatic ocean modeling (1005 citations)
  • GFDL’s ESM2 Global Coupled Climate–Carbon Earth System Models. Part I: Physical Formulation and Baseline Simulation Characteristics (847 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary scientific interests are in Climatology, Mechanics, Ocean current, Classical mechanics and Meteorology. His Climatology research incorporates themes from Global warming, Climate model, Climate simulation and Data assimilation. His research investigates the link between Climate model and topics such as Atmospheric sciences that cross with problems in Atmosphere.

His work on Turbulence as part of his general Mechanics study is frequently connected to Spurious relationship, Langmuir Turbulence and Boundary, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. The Ocean current study combines topics in areas such as Ice shelf and Thermohaline circulation. His Classical mechanics research incorporates elements of Baroclinity, Mathematical analysis, Compressibility and Horizontal and vertical.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climatology (48.21%)
  • Mechanics (16.96%)
  • Ocean current (16.96%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2020)?

  • Climatology (48.21%)
  • Sea ice (11.61%)
  • Data assimilation (11.61%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His main research concerns Climatology, Sea ice, Data assimilation, Atmospheric sciences and Langmuir Turbulence. When carried out as part of a general Climatology research project, his work on Sea surface temperature is frequently linked to work in Spear, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Data assimilation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Ice shelf, Atmospheric models, Ocean current and Thermohaline circulation.

In his research, Forcing is intimately related to Mixed layer, which falls under the overarching field of Atmospheric sciences. Alistair Adcroft performs integrative Langmuir Turbulence and Mechanics research in his work. His work in Mechanics addresses issues such as Vertical mixing, which are connected to fields such as Applied mathematics and Boundary layer.

Between 2017 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Structure and Performance of GFDL's CM4.0 Climate Model (68 citations)
  • The GFDL Global Ocean and Sea Ice Model OM4.0: Model Description and Simulation Features (52 citations)
  • Challenges and Prospects in Ocean Circulation Models (39 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Geometry
  • Mechanics
  • Climate change

His primary areas of study are Climatology, Sea ice, Climate model, Projection and Spear. Alistair Adcroft has researched Climatology in several fields, including Mesoscale eddies and Atmospheric models. He has included themes like Ocean current, Boundary current, Data assimilation and Thermohaline circulation in his Sea ice study.

His study in Climate model is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Earth system model and Meteorology. He performs integrative study on Meteorology and Model description. His Projection study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as General Circulation Model.
