2009 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)
Patrick Minnis spends much of his time researching Meteorology, Atmospheric sciences, Satellite, Radiative transfer and Remote sensing. His Meteorology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Climate model, Ice cloud and Cloud physics. Patrick Minnis interconnects Climatology, Radiative forcing, Aerosol and Longwave in the investigation of issues within Atmospheric sciences.
His Radiative forcing course of study focuses on Forcing and Cloud forcing. He has included themes like Shortwave and Water vapor in his Satellite study. The various areas that he examines in his Remote sensing study include Cloud top, Algorithm, Optical depth and Geostationary orbit.
Patrick Minnis focuses on Meteorology, Remote sensing, Satellite, Atmospheric sciences and Climatology. His research integrates issues of Cloud top, Cloud cover, Radiative transfer and Cloud physics in his study of Meteorology. His studies in Remote sensing integrate themes in fields like Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite, Optical depth, Geostationary orbit and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer.
His work carried out in the field of Satellite brings together such families of science as Icing, Shortwave and Calibration. As part of one scientific family, Patrick Minnis deals mainly with the area of Atmospheric sciences, narrowing it down to issues related to the Longwave, and often Earth's energy budget. His Climatology study incorporates themes from Radiative forcing, Climate model, Cloud forcing and Marine stratocumulus.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Meteorology, Remote sensing, Atmospheric sciences, Satellite and Climatology. In his research on the topic of Meteorology, Cloud forcing and Marine stratocumulus is strongly related with Cloud top. His Remote sensing study deals with Shortwave intersecting with Radiation and Albedo.
The study incorporates disciplines such as Cloud cover, Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer and Cloud condensation nuclei, Aerosol in addition to Atmospheric sciences. His Satellite research also works with subjects such as
His main research concerns Meteorology, Atmospheric sciences, Satellite, Climatology and Remote sensing. In his study, Arctic and Remote sensing is inextricably linked to Climate model, which falls within the broad field of Meteorology. His research in the fields of Troposphere overlaps with other disciplines such as Ice nucleus.
Patrick Minnis combines subjects such as Zenith and Cloud physics with his study of Satellite. His work deals with themes such as Liquid water path, Cloud cover, Cloud fraction and Cloud condensation nuclei, which intersect with Climatology. His Lidar and Radiance study in the realm of Remote sensing interacts with subjects such as Invariant and Terminator.
