Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Meteorology
  • Statistics
  • Climate change

His main research concerns Climatology, Meteorology, Atmospheric sciences, Cloud cover and Climate change. David A. Randall has researched Climatology in several fields, including Madden–Julian oscillation, General Circulation Model, Radiative transfer and Biosphere model. His Meteorology research includes elements of Global warming, Greenhouse effect, Cloud physics and Cloud fraction.

His Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere, Convection, Carbon cycle and Precipitation. His Convection research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Planetary boundary layer, Parametrization, Intensity and Mass flux. His work carried out in the field of Cloud cover brings together such families of science as Remote sensing, Solar zenith angle, Climate model, Turbulence kinetic energy and Normalized Difference Vegetation Index.

His most cited work include:

  • A Revised Land Surface Parameterization (SiB2) for Atmospheric GCMS. Part I: Model Formulation (1569 citations)
  • Climate models and their evaluation (1165 citations)
  • Modeling the Exchanges of Energy, Water, and Carbon Between Continents and the Atmosphere (1128 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Climatology, Meteorology, Atmospheric sciences, Convection and Climate model. His research integrates issues of Madden–Julian oscillation, Atmospheric model, Climate change and Precipitation in his study of Climatology. His Meteorology research includes themes of General Circulation Model, Liquid water content, Cloud physics and Cloud fraction.

His Atmospheric sciences study incorporates themes from Sea surface temperature, Cloud cover, Cloud forcing, Boundary layer and Radiative transfer. His Cloud cover research incorporates themes from Atmosphere and Earth's energy budget. David A. Randall usually deals with Convection and limits it to topics linked to Planetary boundary layer and Entrainment.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climatology (42.02%)
  • Meteorology (35.83%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (34.85%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Convection (26.71%)
  • Climatology (42.02%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (34.85%)

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

David A. Randall mainly focuses on Convection, Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Meteorology and Madden–Julian oscillation. While the research belongs to areas of Convection, David A. Randall spends his time largely on the problem of Atmospheric model, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Mode. His study in Climatology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Climate model, Community Climate System Model and Diabatic.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Remote sensing, Arctic, Baroclinity, General Circulation Model and Intertropical Convergence Zone. His studies deal with areas such as Sea surface temperature, Climate change, Work and Precipitation as well as Atmospheric sciences. The Meteorology study which covers Grid that intersects with Computational science.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Clouds and Aerosols (605 citations)
  • FIRE Arctic Clouds Experiment (224 citations)
  • Confronting Models with Data: The Gewex Cloud Systems Study (133 citations)

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

  • Meteorology
  • Statistics
  • Climate change

David A. Randall focuses on Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Madden–Julian oscillation, Convection and Climate model. His Climatology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Sensible heat, Atmospheric model, Community Climate System Model and Precipitation. His research brings together the fields of Boundary layer and Atmospheric sciences.

He interconnects Wind speed, El Niño Southern Oscillation, Climate change and Tropical convection in the investigation of issues within Madden–Julian oscillation. His study looks at the intersection of Convection and topics like Diabatic with Baroclinity. The Climate model study combines topics in areas such as Intertropical Convergence Zone and Arctic.
