Greg M. McFarquhar spends much of his time researching Atmospheric sciences, Meteorology, Ice crystals, Climatology and CLOUD experiment. The various areas that he examines in his Atmospheric sciences study include Mesoscale meteorology, Liquid water content, Arctic and Aerosol. His Arctic study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Climate model and Precipitation.

Greg M. McFarquhar is interested in Microphysics, which is a branch of Meteorology. His Ice crystals research includes themes of Radiative transfer, Ice cloud and Cirrus. His Climatology study incorporates themes from Convection and Altitude.

His most cited work include:

  • Indian Ocean Experiment: An integrated analysis of the climate forcing and effects of the great Indo-Asian haze (1143 citations)
  • Microphysical Characteristics of Three Anvils Sampled during the Central Equatorial Pacific Experiment (252 citations)
  • The Mixed-Phase Arctic Cloud Experiment. (245 citations)

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

Greg M. McFarquhar mainly investigates Atmospheric sciences, Meteorology, Ice crystals, Climatology and Remote sensing. His work deals with themes such as Convection, Arctic, Precipitation, Aerosol and Radiative transfer, which intersect with Atmospheric sciences. His Convection research integrates issues from Cyclone and Mesoscale meteorology.

His work on Microphysics as part of his general Meteorology study is frequently connected to CLOUD experiment, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His Ice crystals research focuses on Cirrus and how it connects with Ice cloud. His specific area of interest is Climatology, where he studies Tropical cyclone.

  • Atmospheric sciences (47.38%)
  • Meteorology (33.43%)
  • Ice crystals (23.55%)

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

  • Atmospheric sciences (47.38%)
  • Precipitation (14.83%)
  • Meteorology (33.43%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Atmospheric sciences, Precipitation, Meteorology, Aerosol and Remote sensing. His studies in Atmospheric sciences integrate themes in fields like Convection, Radiation, Microphysics and Cloud microphysics. His work carried out in the field of Convection brings together such families of science as Radiative transfer, Scattering and Ice crystals.

In the subject of general Precipitation, his work in Liquid water path is often linked to Effective radius, thereby combining diverse domains of study. In general Meteorology study, his work on Atmospheric research often relates to the realm of TOPS and SOCRATES, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His studies in Remote sensing integrate themes in fields like Snow and In situ.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Evaluation of Triple-Frequency Radar Retrieval of Snowfall Properties Using Coincident Airborne In Situ Observations During OLYMPEX (21 citations)
  • A Review of Ice Particle Shapes in Cirrus formed In Situ and in Anvils (19 citations)
  • Current Status and Future Challenges of Weather Radar Polarimetry: Bridging the Gap between Radar Meteorology/Hydrology/Engineering and Numerical Weather Prediction (16 citations)

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

  • Meteorology
  • Optics
  • Geometry

His primary areas of study are Ice crystals, Radiative transfer, Cloud microphysics, Remote sensing and Atmospheric sciences. His biological study deals with issues like Scattering, which deal with fields such as Position and Molecular physics.
