Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Meteorology
  • Climatology
  • Climate change

Rachel T. Pinker spends much of her time researching Climatology, Meteorology, Atmospheric sciences, Data assimilation and Atmosphere. Her Climatology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Moisture, Radiative forcing and Water content. Her studies in Meteorology integrate themes in fields like Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment, Water cycle, Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite and Surface runoff.

She interconnects Trend surface analysis, Cloud cover, Earth's energy budget and Aerosol in the investigation of issues within Atmospheric sciences. Rachel T. Pinker combines subjects such as Precipitation, Mesonet, Snow, Streamflow and Forcing with her study of Data assimilation. Her research on Atmosphere often connects related topics like Remote sensing.

Her most cited work include:

  • An emerging ground-based aerosol climatology: Aerosol optical depth from AERONET (1507 citations)
  • The multi‐institution North American Land Data Assimilation System (NLDAS): Utilizing multiple GCIP products and partners in a continental distributed hydrological modeling system (916 citations)
  • Baseline surface radiation network (BSRN/WCRP) New precision radiometry for climate research (691 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Atmospheric sciences, Meteorology, Climatology, Remote sensing and Aerosol. Her research integrates issues of Atmospheric radiative transfer codes, Atmosphere, Shortwave and Monsoon in her study of Atmospheric sciences. Her specific area of interest is Meteorology, where Rachel T. Pinker studies Data assimilation.

Her study looks at the intersection of Climatology and topics like Radiative forcing with Vegetation. Many of her research projects under Remote sensing are closely connected to Surface and Scale with Surface and Scale, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. Her research in Aerosol intersects with topics in Precipitable water, Harmattan and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Atmospheric sciences (36.80%)
  • Meteorology (36.80%)
  • Climatology (32.90%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Climatology (32.90%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (36.80%)
  • Aerosol (19.05%)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Aerosol, Surface and Meteorology. The Sea surface temperature research Rachel T. Pinker does as part of her general Climatology study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Magnitude, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. Her Atmospheric sciences research includes elements of Convection, Shortwave radiation, Radiative forcing and Precipitation.

Her Aerosol research includes themes of Atmosphere, Pollution and Sky. Rachel T. Pinker works mostly in the field of Meteorology, limiting it down to topics relating to Remote sensing and, in certain cases, Water vapor. The concepts of her Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer study are interwoven with issues in Sea ice and Shortwave.

Between 2013 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Evaluation of AERONET Precipitable Water Vapor Versus Microwave Radiometry, GPS, and Radiosondes at ARM Sites (67 citations)
  • Review and assessment of latent and sensible heat flux accuracy over the global oceans (37 citations)
  • A Climate Data Record (CDR) for the global terrestrial water budget: 1984–2010 (33 citations)

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

  • Meteorology
  • Climatology
  • Climate change

Her primary areas of study are Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Buoy, Latent heat and Heat flux. The Climatology study combines topics in areas such as Cloud cover, Shortwave and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer. Rachel T. Pinker has included themes like Convection, Precipitation, Aerosol and Sea ice thickness, Arctic geoengineering in her Atmospheric sciences study.

Her Latent heat study combines topics in areas such as Sensible heat, Atmosphere and Sea state, Remote sensing. Rachel T. Pinker conducts interdisciplinary study in the fields of Correlation coefficient and Meteorology through her works. Her work carried out in the field of Meteorology brings together such families of science as Evapotranspiration, Surface runoff and Water cycle.
