Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oceanography
  • Partial differential equation
  • Meteorology

Kwok Fai Cheung mostly deals with Meteorology, Seismology, Hindcast, Wind wave and Wind wave model. Kwok Fai Cheung studied Meteorology and Buoy that intersect with Altimeter. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Inverse problem and Seismology.

Kwok Fai Cheung has researched Hindcast in several fields, including Storm, Tropical cyclone and Wave model. Kwok Fai Cheung usually deals with Wave model and limits it to topics linked to Turbulence modeling and Nonlinear system and Breaking wave. His research in Wind wave tackles topics such as Swell which are related to areas like Weather Research and Forecasting Model.

His most cited work include:

  • HOMOTOPY ANALYSIS OF NONLINEAR PROGRESSIVE WAVES IN DEEP WATER (229 citations)
  • Depth‐integrated, non‐hydrostatic model for wave breaking and run‐up (201 citations)
  • Multiquadric Solution for Shallow Water Equations (199 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Seismology, Mechanics, Meteorology, Nonlinear system and Mathematical analysis. His research investigates the link between Seismology and topics such as Seafloor spreading that cross with problems in Seismic wave. His Mechanics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Wave propagation, Boundary element method, Boundary value problem and Classical mechanics.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Buoy, Climatology and Wind wave. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Climatology, Wave height is strongly linked to Wind speed. His research in Hindcast intersects with topics in Wind wave model, Wave model and Swell.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Seismology (28.30%)
  • Mechanics (20.13%)
  • Meteorology (17.61%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Seismology (28.30%)
  • Climatology (11.32%)
  • Tsunami earthquake (10.69%)

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

Kwok Fai Cheung mainly focuses on Seismology, Climatology, Tsunami earthquake, Meteorology and Subduction. Kwok Fai Cheung has included themes like Tide gauge, Seafloor spreading and Submarine pipeline in his Seismology study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Storm and Wind speed in addition to Climatology.

His Tsunami earthquake research incorporates themes from Aftershock, Hypocenter and Geodesy. Hindcast is closely connected to Buoy in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Meteorology. His Subduction study combines topics in areas such as Fringing reef, Induced seismicity and Intraplate earthquake.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Intercomparison of wind and wave data from the ECMWF Reanalysis Interim and the NCEP Climate Forecast System Reanalysis (185 citations)
  • The 16 April 2016, MW 7.8 (MS 7.5) Ecuador earthquake: A quasi-repeat of the 1942 MS 7.5 earthquake and partial re-rupture of the 1906 MS 8.6 Colombia–Ecuador earthquake (51 citations)
  • Two regions of seafloor deformation generated the tsunami for the 13 November 2016, Kaikoura, New Zealand earthquake (49 citations)

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

  • Oceanography
  • Partial differential equation
  • Meteorology

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Seismology, Climatology, Tide gauge, Subduction and Tsunami earthquake. Many of his research projects under Seismology are closely connected to Self consistent with Self consistent, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His Climatology research includes elements of Storm, Wind speed and Meteorology.

His Storm research incorporates elements of Wave model and Surf zone. His Wind wave research extends to the thematically linked field of Meteorology. In his work, Geodetic datum is strongly intertwined with Hypocenter, which is a subfield of Tsunami earthquake.
