Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oceanography
  • Mechanics
  • Mathematical analysis

His primary areas of investigation include Mathematical analysis, Wave propagation, Primitive equations, Geotechnical engineering and Meteorology. His work in Mathematical analysis addresses subjects such as Breaking wave, which are connected to disciplines such as Conical surface, Finite difference method, Turbulence modeling and Extrapolation. His studies deal with areas such as Dispersion, Turbulence, Inviscid flow, Numerical analysis and Finite volume method as well as Wave propagation.

Patrick J. Lynett has included themes like Motion, Independent equation and Piecewise in his Primitive equations study. His Geotechnical engineering research integrates issues from Nonlinear Schrödinger equation, Mechanics, Continuity equation and Displacement. His Meteorology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Elevation, Bar and Physical geography.

His most cited work include:

  • Modeling wave runup with depth-integrated equations (319 citations)
  • Laboratory and numerical studies of wave damping by emergent and near-emergent wetland vegetation (226 citations)
  • Observations by the International Tsunami Survey Team in Sri Lanka (219 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Seismology, Mechanics, Meteorology, Landslide and Oceanography. His studies in Seismology integrate themes in fields like Submarine pipeline and Bathymetry. He combines subjects such as Breaking wave, Waves and shallow water and Optics with his study of Mechanics.

His work deals with themes such as Wave propagation, Geotechnical engineering and Free surface, which intersect with Waves and shallow water. His research integrates issues of Elevation, Scale, Shallow water equations and Tsunami hazard in his study of Meteorology. His study in the field of Archipelago, Storm and Natural hazard is also linked to topics like West coast.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Seismology (20.44%)
  • Mechanics (17.68%)
  • Meteorology (14.36%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Seismology (20.44%)
  • Shore (8.84%)
  • Landslide (11.60%)

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

His main research concerns Seismology, Shore, Landslide, Mechanics and Coastal engineering. His work carried out in the field of Seismology brings together such families of science as Hydrogeology and Natural hazard. The concepts of his Shore study are interwoven with issues in Geotechnical engineering, Meteorology and Extrapolation.

His Landslide research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Climate change, Glacier, Physical geography, Flood myth and Fjord. His Mechanics research incorporates themes from Surface wave, Finite amplitude and Variable. His study in Turbulence is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Vortex and Waves and shallow water.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Inter-model analysis of tsunami-induced coastal currents (46 citations)
  • The 2015 landslide and tsunami in Taan Fiord, Alaska (35 citations)
  • Celeris: A GPU-accelerated open source software with a Boussinesq-type wave solver for real-time interactive simulation and visualization (21 citations)

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

  • Oceanography
  • Mechanics
  • Mathematical analysis

Patrick J. Lynett mainly investigates Shore, Mechanics, Meteorology, Landslide and Marine engineering. His Shore research includes themes of Atmospheric sciences, Water level, Amplitude, Flow and Coastal flood. He is involved in the study of Mechanics that focuses on Turbulence in particular.

Patrick J. Lynett interconnects Energy method, Tsunami hazard and Extrapolation in the investigation of issues within Meteorology. His Landslide study incorporates themes from Volcano, Wave model, Climate change and Glacier, Physical geography. His Natural hazard research includes elements of Seismology and Hydrogeology.
