Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Meteorology
  • Atmosphere of Earth
  • Infrared

His scientific interests lie mostly in Atmospheric sciences, Climatology, Meteorology, Climate change and Cloud feedback. Robert D. Cess interconnects Atmosphere, Cloud forcing, Radiative forcing and Satellite in the investigation of issues within Atmospheric sciences. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Shortwave, International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project and Earth's energy budget.

His research integrates issues of General Circulation Model, Climate model and Latitude in his study of Climatology. He focuses mostly in the field of Meteorology, narrowing it down to topics relating to Remote sensing and, in certain cases, Radiation budget and Radiative flux. His research in Climate change is mostly concerned with Global warming.

His most cited work include:

  • Climate Forcing by Anthropogenic Aerosols (2835 citations)
  • Seasonal variation of cloud radiative forcing derived from the Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (538 citations)
  • Absorption of solar radiation by clouds: observations versus models. (366 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Atmospheric sciences, Climatology, Meteorology, Radiative transfer and Climate model. Robert D. Cess combines subjects such as Cloud cover, Cloud forcing and Atmosphere with his study of Atmospheric sciences. Robert D. Cess has included themes like Western Hemisphere Warm Pool, Forcing, Greenhouse gas and Cloud height in his Cloud forcing study.

His studies in Climatology integrate themes in fields like General Circulation Model, Climate change, Radiative forcing and Longwave. His work deals with themes such as Absorption, Satellite and Remote sensing, which intersect with Meteorology. His Earth's energy budget research includes themes of Shortwave, Atmosphere of Earth and Cloud physics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Atmospheric sciences (50.82%)
  • Climatology (35.25%)
  • Meteorology (31.15%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1998-2016)?

  • Atmospheric sciences (50.82%)
  • Climatology (35.25%)
  • Climate model (23.77%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Atmospheric sciences, Climatology, Climate model, Cloud forcing and Earth's energy budget. His Atmospheric sciences study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Meteorology, Radiative cooling and Satellite. His Climatology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Global warming and Atmospheric model.

His study in Climate model is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Atmosphere, Sea surface temperature, Forcing and Radiative transfer. His research in Cloud forcing tackles topics such as Shortwave which are related to areas like Shortwave radiation and Absorption. Earth's energy budget is frequently linked to Greenhouse gas in his study.

Between 1998 and 2016, his most popular works were:

  • The Influence of the 1998 El Niño upon Cloud-Radiative Forcing over the Pacific Warm Pool. (77 citations)
  • Cloud cover variations over the United States: An influence of cosmic rays or solar variability? (72 citations)
  • Testing the impact of clouds on the radiation budgets of 19 atmospheric general circulation models (61 citations)

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

  • Infrared
  • Atmosphere of Earth
  • Meteorology

His main research concerns Cloud forcing, Atmospheric sciences, Earth's energy budget, Shortwave and Climatology. His research in Cloud forcing intersects with topics in Shortwave radiation, Satellite, Radiative cooling and Tropopause. His Atmospheric sciences research incorporates elements of Western Hemisphere Warm Pool and Longwave.

The various areas that he examines in his Earth's energy budget study include Outgoing longwave radiation, Climate change, Anomaly and Atmospheric temperature. His Shortwave research integrates issues from Cirrus, Liquid water content, Cloud fraction, Atmospheric model and Cloud height. His Climatology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Global change, Climate model and Cloud physics.
