Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • Hydrology
  • Global warming

Guoqing Zhang mainly investigates Plateau, Glacier, Climate change, Hydrology and Global warming. Guoqing Zhang combines subjects such as Water balance, Physical geography and Water cycle with his study of Plateau. As part of his studies on Glacier, he frequently links adjacent subjects like Water level.

His study in Water level is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Snow and Altimeter. His Climate change research focuses on Climatology and how it connects with Precipitation. His work is dedicated to discovering how Hydrology, Water mass are connected with Water content, Permafrost and Endorheic basin and other disciplines.

His most cited work include:

  • Rapid and highly variable warming of lake surface waters around the globe (535 citations)
  • Monitoring lake level changes on the Tibetan Plateau using ICESat altimetry data (2003-2009) (314 citations)
  • Monitoring lake level changes on the Tibetan Plateau using ICESat altimetry data (2003-2009) (314 citations)

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

Guoqing Zhang mostly deals with Plateau, Physical geography, Glacier, Climate change and Climatology. His Plateau study incorporates themes from Precipitation, Hydrology, Water balance, Snow and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer. His Precipitation course of study focuses on Surface runoff and Aridity index.

Guoqing Zhang has researched Physical geography in several fields, including Global warming, Glacial period and Drainage basin. His Glacier study combines topics in areas such as Structural basin, Water mass, Water level and Water cycle. When carried out as part of a general Climate change research project, his work on Environmental change and Global change is frequently linked to work in Atlantic multidecadal oscillation, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Plateau (103.37%)
  • Physical geography (76.40%)
  • Glacier (59.55%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Physical geography (76.40%)
  • Plateau (103.37%)
  • Glacier (59.55%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Physical geography, Plateau, Glacier, Climate change and Precipitation. His studies deal with areas such as Glacial period and Surface water as well as Physical geography. Guoqing Zhang has included themes like Snow and Atmospheric circulation, Climatology in his Plateau study.

His studies in Glacier integrate themes in fields like Global warming, Water balance and Water cycle. Guoqing Zhang integrates Climate change and Atlantic multidecadal oscillation in his studies. His Precipitation research includes themes of Topographic map and Qinghai tibet plateau.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Response of Tibetan Plateau lakes to climate change: Trends, patterns, and mechanisms (23 citations)
  • Response of Tibetan Plateau lakes to climate change: Trends, patterns, and mechanisms (23 citations)
  • Lake water and glacier mass gains in the northwestern Tibetan Plateau observed from multi-sensor remote sensing data: Implication of an enhanced hydrological cycle (10 citations)
