Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Atmosphere
  • Meteorology
  • Atmosphere of Earth

His primary areas of investigation include Atmosphere, Atmospheric sciences, Thermosphere, Gravity wave and Geophysics. His Atmosphere research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Gravitational wave, Internal wave and Ionosphere. His Atmospheric sciences study which covers Atmosphere of Mars that intersects with Planet and Zonal and meridional.

His Thermosphere study frequently involves adjacent topics like Drag. In his research on the topic of Gravity wave, F region, Stratosphere, Climatology, Latitude and Solstice is strongly related with Turbopause. Erdal Yiğit interconnects Martian and Mesosphere in the investigation of issues within Geophysics.

His most cited work include:

  • Internal wave coupling processes in Earth's atmosphere (139 citations)
  • Parameterization of the effects of vertically propagating gravity waves for thermosphere general circulation models: Sensitivity study (135 citations)
  • Modeling the effects of gravity wave momentum deposition on the general circulation above the turbopause (105 citations)

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

Erdal Yiğit mostly deals with Thermosphere, Atmospheric sciences, Gravity wave, Atmosphere and Geophysics. The concepts of his Thermosphere study are interwoven with issues in Drag, Gravitational wave, Northern Hemisphere and Mars Exploration Program. The Atmospheric sciences study combines topics in areas such as Martian and Turbopause.

His work in Gravity wave covers topics such as Atmosphere of Mars which are related to areas like Dust storm and Effects of high altitude on humans. His study in the field of Mesopause is also linked to topics like Dissipation. His Geophysics research incorporates themes from Aerobraking, Breaking wave and Thermal.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Thermosphere (79.55%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (74.24%)
  • Gravity wave (55.30%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Thermosphere (79.55%)
  • Gravity wave (55.30%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (74.24%)

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

Erdal Yiğit mainly focuses on Thermosphere, Gravity wave, Atmospheric sciences, Mars Exploration Program and Ionosphere. His study with Gravity wave involves better knowledge in Gravitational wave. Erdal Yiğit has researched Atmospheric sciences in several fields, including Drag, Atmosphere and Atmospheric model.

His work on Mesosphere as part of general Atmosphere study is frequently connected to Depth sounding and Momentum, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His Mars Exploration Program research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Kelvin wave, Atmospheric circulation and Geophysics. In general Ionosphere study, his work on Ionospheric absorption often relates to the realm of Ray tracing, thereby connecting several areas of interest.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Gravity Waves in Planetary Atmospheres: Their Effects and Parameterization in Global Circulation Models (11 citations)
  • Annual Cycle of Gravity Wave Activity Derived From a High‐Resolution Martian General Circulation Model (11 citations)
  • Obscure waves in planetary atmospheres (9 citations)

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

  • Atmosphere
  • Atmosphere of Earth
  • Meteorology

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Gravity wave, Gravitational wave, Geophysics, Planet and Mars Exploration Program. His study in Gravity wave is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Variation and Ionosphere. In his works, Erdal Yiğit performs multidisciplinary study on Geophysics and Resolution.

His Planet research incorporates elements of Atmosphere and Atmospheric circulation. His work on Thermosphere as part of general Atmosphere study is frequently linked to Orographic lift, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Thermosphere study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Atmospheric sciences.
