Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Meteorology
  • Optics
  • Remote sensing

Ewan J. O'Connor mainly investigates Meteorology, Lidar, Remote sensing, Environmental science and Anemometer. His research links Liquid water content with Meteorology. His Liquid water content research includes themes of Focus, Radiative transfer, Climate model and Overcast.

His Lidar course of study focuses on Cloud fraction and Quantitative precipitation forecast and Forecast skill. He usually deals with Remote sensing and limits it to topics linked to Ice cloud and Cloud radar. His Boundary layer research incorporates themes from Daytime, Atmospheric sciences, Convection and Aerosol.

His most cited work include:

  • The CloudSat mission and the A-train: a new dimension of space-based observations of clouds and precipitation (1565 citations)
  • Cloudnet: Continuous Evaluation of Cloud Profiles in Seven Operational Models Using Ground-Based Observations (361 citations)
  • Toward understanding of differences in current cloud retrievals of ARM ground‐based measurements (191 citations)

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

His main research concerns Environmental science, Lidar, Meteorology, Remote sensing and Atmospheric sciences. His Lidar study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Wavelength, Drizzle and Turbulence, Turbulence kinetic energy, Anemometer. His Meteorology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cloud base, Liquid water content and Cloud fraction.

In his work, Climate model is strongly intertwined with Radiative transfer, which is a subfield of Liquid water content. His work carried out in the field of Remote sensing brings together such families of science as Focus, Wind speed and Standard deviation. The concepts of his Atmospheric sciences study are interwoven with issues in Wind shear and Boundary layer.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental science (107.53%)
  • Lidar (79.45%)
  • Meteorology (71.92%)

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

  • Environmental science (107.53%)
  • Lidar (79.45%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (41.78%)

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

His primary areas of study are Environmental science, Lidar, Atmospheric sciences, Aerosol and Ceilometer. Environmental science is connected with Meteorology, Remote sensing, Air quality index, Cloud base and Particulates in his research. In general Remote sensing, his work in Backscatter is often linked to Heterodyne linking many areas of study.

His Lidar research integrates issues from Turbulence and Ground based radar. The Atmospheric sciences study combines topics in areas such as Plume and AERONET. His study in Aerosol is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Monsoon and Climatology.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Statistics on clouds and their relation to thermodynamic conditions at Ny-Ålesund using ground-based sensor synergy (14 citations)
  • How Can Existing Ground-Based Profiling Instruments Improve European Weather Forecasts? (13 citations)
  • Evaluating solar radiation forecast uncertainty (8 citations)

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

  • Meteorology
  • Optics
  • Precipitation

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Environmental science, Planetary boundary layer, Ceilometer, Boundary layer and Lidar. His Environmental science studies intersect with other subjects such as Meteorology, Air quality index, Profiling, Relative humidity and Polar. His Meteorology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cloud cover and Cloud base.

His studies in Ceilometer integrate themes in fields like Microwave radiometer and Integrated Forecast System. In his research on the topic of Boundary layer, Atmosphere and Wavelength is strongly related with Aerosol. His work deals with themes such as Turbulence and Cirrus, which intersect with Lidar.
