1989 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Lightning, Meteorology, Atmospheric electricity, Geodesy and Communication channel. His biological study focuses on Lightning strike. In general Lightning strike, his work in Upper-atmospheric lightning is often linked to Charge density linking many areas of study.
His study in the field of Lightning channel, Runaway breakdown and Cloud to ground is also linked to topics like Environmental science. The Communication channel study combines topics in areas such as Electromagnetic compatibility, Transmission line, Frame rate, Maxwell's equations and Mechanics. His research investigates the connection between Current and topics such as Stroke that intersect with problems in Electrical engineering, Range and Current distribution.
His primary areas of investigation include Lightning, Meteorology, Electrical engineering, Optics and Atmospheric electricity. He merges Lightning with Environmental science in his research. Martin A. Uman combines subjects such as Flash and Geodesy with his study of Meteorology.
His Voltage, Lightning arrester, Ground and Electrical conductor investigations are all subjects of Electrical engineering research. His research in the fields of Amplitude overlaps with other disciplines such as Luminosity. Many of his studies on Upper-atmospheric lightning involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Atmospheric sciences.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Lightning, Meteorology, Rocket, Optics and Remote sensing. His Atmospheric electricity study, which is part of a larger body of work in Lightning, is frequently linked to Environmental science, bridging the gap between disciplines. Many of his research projects under Meteorology are closely connected to Peak current with Peak current, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.
His work deals with themes such as Time resolution and Recoil, which intersect with Rocket. Martin A. Uman works mostly in the field of Remote sensing, limiting it down to topics relating to Communication channel and, in certain cases, Frame rate. His Current research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Electric power transmission and Stroke.
Martin A. Uman spends much of his time researching Lightning, Meteorology, Rocket, Atmospheric electricity and Flash. The various areas that Martin A. Uman examines in his Lightning study include Optics, Communication channel, Gamma ray, Current and Remote sensing. His Thunderstorm, Lightning detection and Upper-atmospheric lightning study in the realm of Meteorology interacts with subjects such as Peak current.
The concepts of his Upper-atmospheric lightning study are interwoven with issues in Ball lightning and Thunder. His Rocket study incorporates themes from Computational physics and Recoil, Atomic physics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cloud to ground, Total current, Nuclear magnetic resonance and Stage.
