Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Meteorology
  • Climate change
  • Statistics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Climatology, Water content, Meteorology, Precipitation and Data assimilation. The study of Climatology is intertwined with the study of Water cycle in a number of ways. His work carried out in the field of Water content brings together such families of science as Soil science, Soil water, Atmosphere, Drainage basin and Surface runoff.

His studies in Meteorology integrate themes in fields like Climate model, Remote sensing, Radiometer and Soil horizon. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Atmospheric sciences and Hydrology. His research in Data assimilation intersects with topics in Ensemble Kalman filter, Extended Kalman filter, Soil processes, Scanning multichannel microwave radiometer and Statistics.

His most cited work include:

  • MERRA: NASA’s Modern-Era Retrospective Analysis for Research and Applications (3577 citations)
  • The Modern-Era Retrospective Analysis for Research and Applications, Version 2 (MERRA-2). (1936 citations)
  • Regions of strong coupling between soil moisture and precipitation. (1872 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Climatology, Water content, Precipitation, Atmospheric sciences and Meteorology. His studies in Climatology integrate themes in fields like Atmosphere, Predictability and Water cycle. His work in Water content tackles topics such as Surface runoff which are related to areas like Water balance.

His research integrates issues of Hydrology, Streamflow, General Circulation Model, Evaporation and Atmospheric circulation in his study of Precipitation. Randal D. Koster works mostly in the field of Atmospheric sciences, limiting it down to topics relating to Snow and, in certain cases, Albedo. The study incorporates disciplines such as Remote sensing, Climate model and Data system in addition to Meteorology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climatology (52.84%)
  • Water content (34.75%)
  • Precipitation (30.14%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Water content (34.75%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (28.01%)
  • Climatology (52.84%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Water content, Atmospheric sciences, Climatology, Data assimilation and Hydrology. Randal D. Koster interconnects Soil science, Streamflow, Remote sensing and Precipitation in the investigation of issues within Water content. Randal D. Koster has researched Atmospheric sciences in several fields, including Atmosphere, Primary production, Carbon cycle, Evapotranspiration and Heat wave.

His Climatology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Madden–Julian oscillation and Predictability. His Data assimilation study deals with Earth system science intersecting with Stratosphere. Randal D. Koster combines subjects such as Errors-in-variables models and Climate model with his study of Meteorology.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Subseasonal Experiment (SubX): A Multimodel Subseasonal Prediction Experiment (52 citations)
  • Assessment of MERRA-2 Land Surface Energy Flux Estimates (35 citations)
  • Global relationships among traditional reflectance vegetation indices (NDVI and NDII), evapotranspiration (ET), and soil moisture variability on weekly timescales. (32 citations)

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

  • Climate change
  • Statistics
  • Meteorology

His primary areas of investigation include Climatology, Water content, Atmospheric sciences, Soil water and Data assimilation. His work carried out in the field of Climatology brings together such families of science as Permafrost and Atmosphere. His Water content research includes elements of Latent heat, Sea surface temperature and Hindcast.

His Soil water research integrates issues from Moisture, Streamflow, Remote sensing and Precipitation. His study in Precipitation is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Downwelling, Upwelling and Water cycle. The Data assimilation study combines topics in areas such as Assimilation, Soil science and Earth system science.
