2019 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • Global warming
  • Greenhouse gas

His main research concerns Atmospheric sciences, Climatology, Radiative forcing, Climate change and Climate model. His Atmospheric sciences research includes themes of Cloud albedo, Radiative transfer, Water vapor and Aerosol. Piers M. Forster is studying Troposphere, which is a component of Climatology.

He has researched Radiative forcing in several fields, including Atmospheric radiative transfer codes, Forcing and Greenhouse gas. His Climate change research focuses on subjects like Environmental protection, which are linked to Representative Concentration Pathways, Air quality index, Concentrated solar power and HadGEM1. His research in the fields of Climate sensitivity overlaps with other disciplines such as Energy budget and Present day.

His most cited work include:

  • Changes in Atmospheric Constituents and in Radiative Forcing (3610 citations)
  • Bounding the role of black carbon in the climate system: A scientific assessment (2916 citations)
  • Aviation and global climate change in the 21st century. (627 citations)

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

Piers M. Forster focuses on Atmospheric sciences, Climatology, Radiative forcing, Climate change and Climate model. Piers M. Forster works in the field of Atmospheric sciences, focusing on Forcing in particular. The concepts of his Climatology study are interwoven with issues in Precipitation and Climate sensitivity.

Piers M. Forster studies Cloud forcing, a branch of Radiative forcing. His studies in Cloud forcing integrate themes in fields like Cloud feedback and Climate commitment. Piers M. Forster studies Climate change, namely Global warming.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Atmospheric sciences (55.92%)
  • Climatology (38.82%)
  • Radiative forcing (39.80%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Atmospheric sciences (55.92%)
  • Radiative forcing (39.80%)
  • Forcing (20.07%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Atmospheric sciences, Radiative forcing, Forcing, Greenhouse gas and Aerosol. The Atmospheric sciences study combines topics in areas such as Atmosphere, Global warming, Climate change, Precipitation and Radiative transfer. His research on Climate change focuses in particular on Climate model.

His studies examine the connections between Radiative forcing and genetics, as well as such issues in Ozone, with regards to Land surface temperature. Forcing is the subject of his research, which falls under Climatology. His Climatology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Climate change mitigation and Polar amplification.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Estimating and tracking the remaining carbon budget for stringent climate targets. (81 citations)
  • Bounding global aerosol radiative forcing of climate change (80 citations)
  • An assessment of Earth's climate sensitivity using multiple lines of evidence (70 citations)

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

  • Climate change
  • Global warming
  • Greenhouse gas

His scientific interests lie mostly in Atmospheric sciences, Greenhouse gas, Aerosol, Radiative forcing and Climate change. His Atmospheric sciences study combines topics in areas such as Global warming, Atmosphere and Precipitation. His study looks at the relationship between Greenhouse gas and fields such as Troposphere, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

As part of his studies on Radiative forcing, Piers M. Forster often connects relevant areas like Forcing. His Forcing research integrates issues from Radiative transfer and Climate sensitivity. His study explores the link between Climate change and topics such as Cloud cover that cross with problems in Cirrus, Environmental impact of aviation, Sulfate aerosol and Lead.
