Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Meteorology
  • Tropical cyclone
  • Climate change

His primary scientific interests are in Tropical cyclone, Meteorology, Climatology, Atmospheric sciences and Climate change. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Wind shear, Sea surface temperature, Intensity, Carnot cycle and Tropical cyclogenesis. In his research on the topic of Meteorology, Extratropical cyclone and Dissipation is strongly related with Mechanics.

His Climatology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Global warming, Tropical cyclone rainfall forecasting, Downscaling and Cyclogenesis. The concepts of his Atmospheric sciences study are interwoven with issues in Convection and Precipitation. The various areas that he examines in his Climate change study include Atlantic Equatorial mode, Megacity and Environmental resource management.

His most cited work include:

  • Increasing destructiveness of tropical cyclones over the past 30 years (2643 citations)
  • Tropical cyclones and climate change (1964 citations)
  • An Air-Sea Interaction Theory for Tropical Cyclones. Part I: Steady-State Maintenance (1295 citations)

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

Climatology, Tropical cyclone, Meteorology, Atmospheric sciences and Storm are his primary areas of study. His study looks at the relationship between Climatology and fields such as Climate change, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. Kerry Emanuel has researched Tropical cyclone in several fields, including Tropical cyclone rainfall forecasting, Wind shear, Sea surface temperature, Intensity and Tropical cyclogenesis.

His Meteorology study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Predictability. His work in Atmospheric sciences tackles topics such as Convection which are related to areas like Atmosphere, Troposphere and Water vapor. In the subject of general Storm, his work in Storm surge is often linked to Damages, thereby combining diverse domains of study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climatology (47.78%)
  • Tropical cyclone (45.43%)
  • Meteorology (30.44%)

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

  • Climatology (47.78%)
  • Tropical cyclone (45.43%)
  • Convection (18.50%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Climatology, Tropical cyclone, Convection, Meteorology and Climate change. Kerry Emanuel interconnects Storm, Climate change assessment, Climate model, Centennial and Downscaling in the investigation of issues within Climatology. Tropical cyclone is a subfield of Oceanography that Kerry Emanuel explores.

The Convection study combines topics in areas such as Field campaign, Atmospheric sciences and Instability. His research integrates issues of Fully coupled and Earth system science in his study of Meteorology. His work in Climate change covers topics such as Precipitation which are related to areas like Extreme weather, Climate change mitigation and Geoengineering.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Broad threat to humanity from cumulative climate hazards intensified by greenhouse gas emissions (106 citations)
  • Tropical Cyclones and Climate Change Assessment: Part II: Projected Response to Anthropogenic Warming (105 citations)
  • Tropical Cyclones and Climate Change Assessment: Part I: Detection and Attribution (102 citations)

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

  • Meteorology
  • Climate change
  • Tropical cyclone

Kerry Emanuel focuses on Climatology, Tropical cyclone, Convection, Climate change and Precipitation. A large part of his Climatology studies is devoted to Troposphere. His work deals with themes such as Indian ocean, Hazard, Tropics, Intensity and Flood myth, which intersect with Tropical cyclone.

His Convection research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Instability and Water vapor. His Climate change research incorporates themes from Environmental protection, Humidity, Forcing, Greenhouse gas and Temporal scales. His studies in Precipitation integrate themes in fields like Land cover, Estimation and Risk assessment.
