Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • Statistics
  • Climatology

Climatology, Precipitation, Atmospheric sciences, Climate change and Meteorology are his primary areas of study. Kevin E. Trenberth is involved in the study of Climatology that focuses on Sea surface temperature in particular. His Precipitation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Streamflow and Surface runoff.

His Atmospheric sciences research includes elements of Atmosphere, Cloud cover and Latitude. His study looks at the relationship between Climate change and fields such as Regression analysis, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. The Meteorology study combines topics in areas such as Climate system and Ionosphere.

His most cited work include:

  • The ERA‐40 re‐analysis (6051 citations)
  • The Definition of El Niño. (2102 citations)
  • Decadal atmosphere-ocean variations in the Pacific (1934 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Climate change, Meteorology and Precipitation. His study focuses on the intersection of Climatology and fields such as Atmosphere with connections in the field of Water vapor. His work in Atmospheric sciences tackles topics such as Southern Hemisphere which are related to areas like Geopotential height.

As a member of one scientific family, Kevin E. Trenberth mostly works in the field of Climate change, focusing on Sea surface temperature and, on occasion, La Niña. His work carried out in the field of Precipitation brings together such families of science as Moisture, Storm and Diurnal cycle. His Northern Hemisphere study combines topics in areas such as Atmospheric circulation and Sea level.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climatology (72.12%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (28.18%)
  • Climate change (23.64%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Climatology (72.12%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (28.18%)
  • Climate change (23.64%)

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

His primary areas of study are Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Climate change, Precipitation and Ocean heat content. Kevin E. Trenberth has included themes like Global warming, Atmosphere, Climate model and Water cycle in his Climatology study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Kinetic energy, Sea surface temperature, Energy and Global change in addition to Atmospheric sciences.

His work in Climate change addresses subjects such as Meteorology, which are connected to disciplines such as Environmental planning. His studies in Precipitation integrate themes in fields like Sensible heat, Diurnal cycle and Intermittency. His Ocean heat content research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Argo, Zonal and meridional and El Niño Southern Oscillation.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global warming and changes in drought (1229 citations)
  • An apparent hiatus in global warming (401 citations)
  • Attribution of climate extreme events (375 citations)

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

  • Climate change
  • Statistics
  • Meteorology

Kevin E. Trenberth mainly investigates Climatology, Climate change, Ocean heat content, Global warming and Water cycle. His research integrates issues of Atmosphere, Atmospheric sciences, Global warming hiatus and Precipitation in his study of Climatology. His Climate change research includes themes of Physical geography and Natural variability.

His Ocean heat content study incorporates themes from Deep sea, Argo, Community Climate System Model and Zonal and meridional. His Global warming research integrates issues from Sea level and Climate sensitivity. He has researched Water cycle in several fields, including Latent heat, Meteorology and Radiant energy.
