Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • Statistics
  • Climatology

His main research concerns Climatology, Climate change, Global warming, Atmospheric sciences and Precipitation. His Climatology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Climate extremes, Storm, Extreme events and Climate model. His Climate change research incorporates themes from Meteorology and Land use.

His Global warming study incorporates themes from Range, Biodiversity, Marine ecosystem and Sea surface temperature. The concepts of his Atmospheric sciences study are interwoven with issues in Spatial ecology, Probability distribution, Wind speed and Probability density function. Markus G. Donat has included themes like Hydrology, Flooding, Hydrology, Climate commitment and Climate change mitigation in his Precipitation study.

His most cited work include:

  • Updated analyses of temperature and precipitation extreme indices since the beginning of the twentieth century: The HadEX2 dataset (723 citations)
  • More extreme precipitation in the world’s dry and wet regions (487 citations)
  • Longer and more frequent marine heatwaves over the past century (335 citations)

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

Markus G. Donat mainly focuses on Climatology, Precipitation, Climate change, Atmospheric sciences and Global warming. His research in Climatology intersects with topics in Storm, Wind speed, Meteorology, Climate model and Climate extremes. In his research, Event is intimately related to Extreme weather, which falls under the overarching field of Climate model.

Markus G. Donat focuses mostly in the field of Precipitation, narrowing it down to topics relating to Predictability and, in certain cases, North Atlantic oscillation. In his study, Teleconnection, Physical oceanography, Marine ecosystem and Sea ice is strongly linked to Sea surface temperature, which falls under the umbrella field of Climate change. His Atmospheric sciences research integrates issues from Spatial ecology and Atmosphere.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climatology (92.16%)
  • Precipitation (41.18%)
  • Climate change (28.76%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Climatology (92.16%)
  • Precipitation (41.18%)
  • Sea ice (5.23%)

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

Markus G. Donat mostly deals with Climatology, Precipitation, Sea ice, Christian ministry and Sea surface temperature. His studies in Climatology integrate themes in fields like Wind speed, Ecosystem and Global climate. His research integrates issues of Productivity, Marine biology, Marine ecosystem and Seasonality in his study of Wind speed.

His study in Precipitation is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both In situ, Heat wave, Climate model and Greenhouse gas. Markus G. Donat has researched Greenhouse gas in several fields, including Global warming, Climate change, Atmospheric sciences, Tropics and Aerosol. His Sea ice research includes elements of Climate response, Errors-in-variables models, North Atlantic oscillation and Earth system science.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Development of an Updated Global Land In Situ-Based Data Set of Temperature and Precipitation Extremes: HadEX3 (55 citations)
  • Rainfall Estimates on a Gridded Network (REGEN) – a global land-based gridded dataset of daily precipitation from 1950 to 2016 (20 citations)
  • Rainfall Estimates on a Gridded Network (REGEN) – a global land-based gridded dataset of daily precipitation from 1950 to 2016 (20 citations)

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

  • Climate change
  • Statistics
  • Global warming

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Precipitation, Climatology, Global precipitation, Standard deviation and Land based. His Precipitation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Range, Greenhouse gas and Time series. His work deals with themes such as Global warming, Climate change, Atmospheric sciences, Tropics and Aerosol, which intersect with Greenhouse gas.

His Climatology research incorporates elements of Environmental monitoring and Global climate. His Global precipitation study combines topics in areas such as Kriging and Historical climatology.
