Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Meteorology
  • Astronomy
  • Optics

His primary scientific interests are in Environmental science, Atmospheric sciences, Meteorology, Astrophysics and Brown dwarf. Along with Environmental science, other disciplines of study including Cloud cover, Cloud physics, Radiative transfer, Convection and Cloud albedo are integrated into his research. His Cloud physics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cloud condensation nuclei and Marine stratocumulus.

He has included themes like Microphysics, Drizzle, Precipitation, Cloud fraction and Aerosol in his Atmospheric sciences study. His Meteorology research incorporates themes from Cloud top, Liquid water content and Boundary layer. Andrew S. Ackerman usually deals with Astrophysics and limits it to topics linked to Astronomy and Opacity.

His most cited work include:

  • Reduction of Tropical Cloudiness by Soot (982 citations)
  • Precipitating Condensation Clouds in Substellar Atmospheres (658 citations)
  • The Impact of humidity above stratiform clouds on indirect aerosol climate forcing (468 citations)

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

Andrew S. Ackerman focuses on Atmospheric sciences, Environmental science, Meteorology, Remote sensing and Aerosol. His work carried out in the field of Atmospheric sciences brings together such families of science as Climatology, Microphysics, Convection, Drizzle and Ice crystals. His work focuses on many connections between Convection and other disciplines, such as Troposphere, that overlap with his field of interest in Cirrus.

His Environmental science study spans across into subjects like Precipitation, Cloud cover, Boundary layer, Radiative forcing and Cloud top. His research integrates issues of Radiative transfer, Liquid water content and Cloud physics in his study of Meteorology. His Remote sensing research includes elements of Polarimeter, Polarization and Satellite, Ice cloud, Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Atmospheric sciences (51.46%)
  • Environmental science (49.03%)
  • Meteorology (30.10%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Environmental science (49.03%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (51.46%)
  • Microphysics (18.45%)

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

Andrew S. Ackerman mostly deals with Environmental science, Atmospheric sciences, Microphysics, Turbulence and Aerosol. His research integrates issues of Cloud top, Supercooling, Ice crystals, Mesoscale meteorology and Moisture in his study of Atmospheric sciences. His Microphysics study incorporates themes from Drizzle and Boundary layer.

In his research on the topic of Boundary layer, Cloud cover, Water vapor, Overcast and Breakup is strongly related with Liquid water path. When carried out as part of a general Aerosol research project, his work on Aerosol cloud is frequently linked to work in Marine ecosystem, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His research in Precipitation tackles topics such as Cloud condensation nuclei which are related to areas like Cloud base.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Remote Sensing of Droplet Number Concentration in Warm Clouds: A Review of the Current State of Knowledge and Perspectives (83 citations)
  • Sedimentation Efficiency of Condensation Clouds in Substellar Atmospheres (45 citations)
  • GISS-E2.1: Configurations and Climatology. (34 citations)
