Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • Meteorology
  • Climatology

L. Ruby Leung mainly investigates Climatology, Precipitation, Atmospheric sciences, Climate change and Aerosol. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Snowpack and Climate model. In his study, Snow is strongly linked to Weather Research and Forecasting Model, which falls under the umbrella field of Climate model.

His work deals with themes such as Free convective layer and Mesoscale meteorology, which intersect with Precipitation. The Atmospheric sciences study combines topics in areas such as Moisture, Planetary boundary layer, Convection and Cold-core low. His work in the fields of Radiative forcing and Cloud condensation nuclei overlaps with other areas such as Coalescence.

His most cited work include:

  • Regional climate modeling: Progress, challenges, and prospects (369 citations)
  • Mid-Century Ensemble Regional Climate Change Scenarios for the Western United States (341 citations)
  • High Resolution Model Intercomparison Project (HighResMIP v1.0) for CMIP6 (271 citations)

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

L. Ruby Leung mainly focuses on Climatology, Precipitation, Atmospheric sciences, Climate model and Climate change. His research combines Convection and Climatology. The concepts of his Precipitation study are interwoven with issues in Moisture, Atmospheric circulation, Global warming and Mesoscale meteorology.

L. Ruby Leung combines subjects such as Water cycle, Radiative forcing, Aerosol and Atmospheric model with his study of Atmospheric sciences. His Aerosol study focuses on Cloud condensation nuclei in particular. His Climate model study combines topics in areas such as Snowpack and Downscaling.

  • Precipitation (33.65%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (29.56%)

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

L. Ruby Leung mostly deals with Climatology, Precipitation, Atmospheric sciences, Meteorology and Climate change. His study in the field of Tropical cyclone is also linked to topics like Thesaurus. His Precipitation research incorporates themes from Sea surface temperature, Troposphere and Earth system science.

His Atmospheric sciences research integrates issues from Atmosphere and Aerosol. His Meteorology research includes themes of Design flood, Tracking and Climate model. His research in Climate change intersects with topics in Thermoelectric effect, River regulation and Environmental protection.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Responses and impacts of atmospheric rivers to climate change (38 citations)
  • Aerosols in the E3SM Version 1: New Developments and Their Impacts on Radiative Forcing (14 citations)
  • Dust dominates high-altitude snow darkening and melt over high-mountain Asia (12 citations)

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

  • Climate change
  • Meteorology
  • Statistics

L. Ruby Leung focuses on Climatology, Precipitation, Hydrology, Climate change and Thesaurus. His research in Climatology focuses on subjects like Climate sensitivity, which are connected to Forcing. The various areas that L. Ruby Leung examines in his Precipitation study include Moisture, Atmospheric moisture and Sea surface temperature.

His Sea surface temperature research integrates issues from Convection, Atmospheric river and Troposphere. His research integrates issues of Fully coupled and Earth system model in his study of Hydrology. L. Ruby Leung combines subjects such as Thermoelectric effect, River regulation and Environmental protection with his study of Climate change.
