1983 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)
Klaus Wyrtki mainly focuses on Oceanography, Climatology, Ocean gyre, Indian ocean and Monsoon. His research related to Thermocline, Ocean heat content, Wind stress, Pacific ocean and Current might be considered part of Oceanography. His Current research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Jet, Equator, Subtropical Indian Ocean Dipole and Thermohaline circulation.
His work carried out in the field of Climatology brings together such families of science as Tropical pacific, Flow, Sea level and Dynamic height. His research integrates issues of Shear flow, Boundary current and Anticyclone in his study of Ocean gyre. His study looks at the relationship between Monsoon and topics such as Physical oceanography, which overlap with Deep sea, Circumpolar star and Agulhas current.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Oceanography, Climatology, Sea level, Pacific ocean and Ocean current. His work in Oceanography addresses issues such as Ocean gyre, which are connected to fields such as Boundary current. In general Climatology study, his work on Ocean surface topography, Sea surface temperature, Ocean heat content and Thermocline often relates to the realm of Environmental science, thereby connecting several areas of interest.
In his work, Bathythermograph is strongly intertwined with Dynamic height, which is a subfield of Sea level. His Ocean current study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Mooring, Hydrography, Archipelago and Geophysics. His study on Current also encompasses disciplines like
Klaus Wyrtki mostly deals with Climatology, Oceanography, Sea level, Environmental science and Pacific ocean. Thermocline is the focus of his Climatology research. Klaus Wyrtki combines Oceanography and El Niño in his studies.
His studies in Sea level integrate themes in fields like Altimeter, Sea surface temperature, Ocean heat content and Ocean surface topography. His Pacific ocean study combines topics in areas such as Sea level anomaly, Geostrophic wind and Scale. His study looks at the intersection of Current and topics like Circulation with Water mass.
