His primary scientific interests are in Climatology, Tropical wave, Monsoon, Tropical cyclone and Meteorology. His Climatology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Storm and Convection. His work deals with themes such as Potential vorticity, Vorticity and African easterly jet, which intersect with Tropical wave.
The concepts of his Monsoon study are interwoven with issues in Annual cycle, Atmospheric circulation and Field campaign. His Tropical cyclone study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Synoptic scale meteorology and Storm track. His work investigates the relationship between Meteorology and topics such as Cyclogenesis that intersect with problems in Mesoscale convective system.
Chris D. Thorncroft mainly focuses on Climatology, Tropical wave, Atmospheric sciences, Tropical cyclone and African easterly jet. Chris D. Thorncroft works in the field of Climatology, namely Monsoon. The Tropical wave study combines topics in areas such as Trough, Intertropical Convergence Zone, Troposphere and Vorticity.
His Atmospheric sciences research incorporates themes from Planetary boundary layer, Atmosphere and Kelvin wave. His work in Tropical cyclone tackles topics such as Atlantic multidecadal oscillation which are related to areas like Teleconnection. His work in African easterly jet addresses subjects such as Dropsonde, which are connected to disciplines such as Mixed layer.
His main research concerns Climatology, Tropical wave, Atmospheric sciences, Tropical cyclone and Convection. His study in Climatology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Climate change and Inflow. Chris D. Thorncroft combines subjects such as Trough, Three dimensional flow, Coupled model intercomparison project, African easterly jet and Troposphere with his study of Tropical wave.
His studies in African easterly jet integrate themes in fields like Tropical rainfall and Tropical Atlantic. His Tropical cyclone research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Climate model, Diurnal cycle, Tropical convection and Model output statistics. His Convection study incorporates themes from Empirical orthogonal functions and Synoptic climatology.
