Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Meteorology
  • Aerosol
  • Atmospheric sciences

His main research concerns Aerosol, Atmospheric sciences, Climatology, Monsoon and Forcing. His research in the fields of Radiative forcing overlaps with other disciplines such as Mass concentration. K. Krishna Moorthy interconnects Planetary boundary layer, Optical depth, Radiometer and Altitude in the investigation of issues within Atmospheric sciences.

His Climatology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Mineral dust and Bay. The various areas that K. Krishna Moorthy examines in his Monsoon study include Angstrom exponent and Air mass. His research in Forcing intersects with topics in Climate change and Global climate.

His most cited work include:

  • Radiative effects of natural aerosols: A review (350 citations)
  • Wintertime aerosol characteristics over the Indo‐Gangetic Plain (IGP): Impacts of local boundary layer processes and long‐range transport (238 citations)
  • Aerosol radiative forcing due to enhanced black carbon at an urban site in India (208 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Aerosol, Atmospheric sciences, Climatology, Monsoon and Mass concentration. His work carried out in the field of Aerosol brings together such families of science as Planetary boundary layer, Atmosphere and Radiative transfer. His Troposphere study in the realm of Atmospheric sciences connects with subjects such as Seasonality.

His Climatology study combines topics in areas such as Air mass, Bay, Indian ocean and Intertropical Convergence Zone. His Monsoon research includes elements of Angstrom exponent, Synoptic scale meteorology and Mixing ratio. He combines subjects such as Shortwave, Forcing and Earth's energy budget with his study of Radiative forcing.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Aerosol (77.27%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (61.19%)
  • Climatology (42.31%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Aerosol (77.27%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (61.19%)
  • Climatology (42.31%)

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

His primary areas of study are Aerosol, Atmospheric sciences, Climatology, Monsoon and Altitude. His study in Aerosol is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Radiative transfer and Absorption. In general Atmospheric sciences, his work in Troposphere is often linked to Seasonality linking many areas of study.

His studies deal with areas such as Optical depth and Convection as well as Climatology. His Monsoon research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ceilometer, Atmospheric models, Anticyclone and Cruise. The concepts of his Altitude study are interwoven with issues in Humidity and Cloud condensation nuclei.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Investigations of aerosol black carbon from a semi-urban site in the Indo-Gangetic Plain region (42 citations)
  • Sources of black carbon aerosols in South Asia and surrounding regions during the Integrated Campaign for Aerosols, Gases and Radiation Budget (ICARB) (36 citations)
  • Seasonal variation of vertical distribution of aerosol single scattering albedo over Indian sub-continent: RAWEX aircraft observations (27 citations)

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

  • Meteorology
  • Atmosphere of Earth
  • Infrared
