  • A Semiempirical Cloudiness Parameterization for Use in Climate Models (248 citations)
  • Is the Tropical Atmosphere Conditionally Unstable (241 citations)

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

Kuan-Man Xu mainly investigates Environmental science, Atmospheric sciences, Meteorology, Climatology and Convection. His Environmental science research includes elements of Precipitation, Cloud cover, Cloud height, Liquid water content and Advection. His Atmospheric sciences research includes elements of Longwave, Ensemble forecasting, Cloud albedo, Shortwave and Cloud forcing.

His study in Meteorology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Albedo, Mass flux, Cloud physics and Cloud fraction. The concepts of his Climatology study are interwoven with issues in Subsidence and Climate model. Kuan-Man Xu has included themes like Work, Troposphere and Mesoscale meteorology in his Convection study.
