Environmental science, Meteorology, Lightning, Thunderstorm and Climatology are his primary areas of study. His work on Storm and Lightning detection as part of general Meteorology research is often related to Monte Carlo method, Curvature and Spacetime, thus linking different fields of science. His research integrates issues of Noise and Remote sensing in his study of Lightning.
His studies in Remote sensing integrate themes in fields like Image sensor, Detector and Latitude. When carried out as part of a general Thunderstorm research project, his work on Terrestrial gamma-ray flash is frequently linked to work in Relativistic runaway electron avalanche, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His research investigates the connection between Climatology and topics such as Atmospheric electricity that intersect with problems in Air mass.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Lightning, Meteorology, Thunderstorm, Environmental science and Remote sensing. The study incorporates disciplines such as Flash, Gamma ray and Geostationary orbit in addition to Lightning. In his study, Radiance is inextricably linked to Satellite, which falls within the broad field of Meteorology.
His Thunderstorm research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Extreme weather, Graupel, Ice crystals, Tornado and Lightning strike. His research on Remote sensing also deals with topics like
Hugh J. Christian mainly focuses on Lightning, Gamma ray, Environmental science, Thunderstorm and Remote sensing. His Lightning study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Meteorology. His Meteorology study combines topics in areas such as Global change and Latitude.
His Gamma ray study also includes fields such as
His primary areas of study are Lightning, Remote sensing, Environmental science, Spectroscopy and High-speed camera. Hugh J. Christian merges many fields, such as Lightning and Pathology, in his writings. His work deals with themes such as Image sensor and Lightning detection, which intersect with Remote sensing.
His Image sensor research includes elements of Radio frequency, Detector and Wideband. His Environmental science study spans across into fields like Thunderstorm, Structural basin, Climatology and Tropical rainfall. Hugh J. Christian performs multidisciplinary study on Thunderstorm and Subtropics in his works.
