Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Meteorology
  • Optics
  • Infrared

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.

His most cited work include:

  • Cloud-radiative forcing and climate: results from the Earth radiation budget experiment. (1305 citations)
  • Efficacy of climate forcings (1009 citations)
  • Seasonal variation of cloud radiative forcing derived from the Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (538 citations)

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

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.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Meteorology (56.90%)
  • Remote sensing (46.08%)
  • Satellite (36.19%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Meteorology (56.90%)
  • Remote sensing (46.08%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (30.22%)

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

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

  • Weather Research and Forecasting Model which connect with Data assimilation,
  • Spectroradiometer which is related to area like Daytime. He has researched Climatology in several fields, including Storm and Cloud fraction.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Dust and Biological Aerosols from the Sahara and Asia Influence Precipitation in the Western U.S. (361 citations)
  • Assessment of Global Cloud Datasets from Satellites: Project and Database Initiated by the GEWEX Radiation Panel (335 citations)
  • FIRE Arctic Clouds Experiment (224 citations)

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

  • Meteorology
  • Optics
  • Infrared

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.
