Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Meteorology
  • Climate change
  • Geometry

Kun Yang spends much of his time researching Climatology, Precipitation, Hydrology, Water cycle and Water content. The various areas that Kun Yang examines in his Climatology study include Global warming, Climate change and Wind speed. His Precipitation research incorporates themes from Water balance, Shortwave radiation, Surface runoff and Evapotranspiration.

His Hydrology research incorporates themes from Soil water and Atmospheric sciences. His Water cycle research incorporates elements of Glacier and Surface water. The concepts of his Water content study are interwoven with issues in Moisture and Soil science.

His most cited work include:

  • Recent climate changes over the Tibetan Plateau and their impacts on energy and water cycle: A review (460 citations)
  • Improving land surface temperature modeling for dry land of China (333 citations)
  • On downward shortwave and longwave radiations over high altitude regions: Observation and modeling in the Tibetan Plateau (274 citations)

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

Kun Yang mainly focuses on Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Precipitation, Meteorology and Water content. Kun Yang usually deals with Climatology and limits it to topics linked to Climate change and Physical geography. The study incorporates disciplines such as Planetary boundary layer, Water vapor, Seasonality and Aerosol in addition to Atmospheric sciences.

His research on Precipitation also deals with topics like

  • Glacier together with Snow and Permafrost,
  • Water cycle together with Surface water. His Meteorology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Radiative transfer, Remote sensing and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer. His studies in Water content integrate themes in fields like Moisture, Soil science, Data assimilation and Radiometer.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climatology (52.59%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (31.32%)
  • Precipitation (34.48%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Climatology (52.59%)
  • Precipitation (34.48%)
  • Remote sensing (22.13%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Climatology, Precipitation, Remote sensing, Physical geography and Atmospheric sciences. His work on Weather Research and Forecasting Model as part of general Climatology study is frequently connected to Elevation, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. The Precipitation study combines topics in areas such as Image resolution, Wind speed, Terrain and Common spatial pattern.

His work carried out in the field of Remote sensing brings together such families of science as Arid, Radiation, Streamflow and Geostationary orbit. His work deals with themes such as Global warming, Climate change, Monsoon and Water level, which intersect with Physical geography. Kun Yang combines subjects such as Thermal, Seasonality and Water content with his study of Atmospheric sciences.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Recent third pole's rapid warming accompanies cryospheric melt and water cycle intensification and interactions between monsoon and environment : Multidisciplinary approach with observations, modeling, and analysis (118 citations)
  • The first high-resolution meteorological forcing dataset for land process studies over China (104 citations)
  • The first high-resolution meteorological forcing dataset for land process studies over China (104 citations)

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

  • Meteorology
  • Climate change
  • Global warming

Kun Yang focuses on Climatology, Precipitation, Global warming, Albedo and Weather Research and Forecasting Model. His research in Climatology intersects with topics in Depth conversion, Data assimilation and Water resources. His Precipitation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Wind speed and Spatial distribution.

His Global warming research integrates issues from Remote sensing, Physical geography and Satellite data. The various areas that Kun Yang examines in his Physical geography study include Arid and Climate change. As a member of one scientific family, Kun Yang mostly works in the field of Snow, focusing on Hydrology and, on occasion, Atmospheric sciences.
