2023 - Research.com Earth Science in United States Leader Award
2014 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Climatology, Oceanography, Sea surface temperature, La Niña and Equator. His Climatology research incorporates themes from Buoy and Tropical instability waves. His work in Oceanography addresses issues such as High-Nutrient, low-chlorophyll, which are connected to fields such as Carbon dioxide, Algal bloom and Productivity.
In the subject of general Sea surface temperature, his work in Ocean heat content is often linked to Advection, thereby combining diverse domains of study. The various areas that Michael J. McPhaden examines in his La Niña study include Climate change, Climate model, Global change and Extreme weather. His Equator study incorporates themes from Wind stress, Zonal and meridional, Seasonality, Southern oscillation and Ocean current.
Michael J. McPhaden spends much of his time researching Climatology, Oceanography, Sea surface temperature, Thermocline and Equator. He focuses mostly in the field of Climatology, narrowing it down to matters related to Buoy and, in some cases, Meteorology. His study in Ocean current, Upwelling, Tropical Atlantic, Indian ocean and Salinity are all subfields of Oceanography.
In general Sea surface temperature study, his work on Indian Ocean Dipole, Atlantic multidecadal oscillation and Pacific decadal oscillation often relates to the realm of Advection, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His Equator study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Current, Atmospheric sciences, Zonal and meridional and Kelvin wave. His Kelvin wave study combines topics in areas such as Rossby wave and Wind wave.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Climatology, El Niño Southern Oscillation, Oceanography, Indian ocean and Forcing. His study in Climatology concentrates on Sea surface temperature and La Niña. Michael J. McPhaden has researched Sea surface temperature in several fields, including Thermocline, Madden–Julian oscillation and Greenhouse gas.
The study incorporates disciplines such as Tropical climate, Climate change and Earth system science in addition to El Niño Southern Oscillation. He usually deals with Oceanography and limits it to topics linked to Indo-Pacific and Northern australia and Tropics. His research in Indian ocean tackles topics such as Geophysics which are related to areas like Equatorial waves.
Michael J. McPhaden focuses on Climatology, Forcing, Oceanography, Indian ocean and Sea surface temperature. His Climatology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Greenhouse warming and Intertropical Convergence Zone, Precipitation. In the field of Oceanography, his study on Argo, Indian Ocean Dipole and Biogeochemistry overlaps with subjects such as Indonesian.
The concepts of his Indian ocean study are interwoven with issues in Atmosphere, Ekman transport and Boreal summer. Sea surface temperature and Thermocline are frequently intertwined in his study. His El Niño Southern Oscillation study also includes fields such as
