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

Robert E. Dickinson spends much of his time researching Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Evapotranspiration, Precipitation and Climate model. His work deals with themes such as Latent heat, Cloud cover, Climate change and Diurnal temperature variation, which intersect with Climatology. His Atmospheric sciences study combines topics in areas such as Hydrology, Canopy, Carbon dioxide and Greenhouse gas.

His Evapotranspiration study also includes

  • Water content and related Anomaly and Spring,
  • Remote sensing most often made with reference to Vegetation. He has researched Precipitation in several fields, including Atmosphere, Troposphere and Anticyclone. His Climate model research includes elements of Global warming and Meteorology.

Between 2009 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • A REVIEW OF GLOBAL TERRESTRIAL EVAPOTRANSPIRATION: OBSERVATION, MODELING, CLIMATOLOGY, AND CLIMATIC VARIABILITY (650 citations)
  • Technical Description of version 4.0 of the Community Land Model (CLM) (594 citations)
  • Modeling Evapotranspiration for Three‐Dimensional Global Climate Models (428 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Meteorology

Robert E. Dickinson mainly focuses on Climatology, Evapotranspiration, Atmospheric sciences, Photosynthesis and Precipitation. His research integrates issues of Diurnal temperature variation, Cloud cover, Greenhouse gas, General Circulation Model and Radiation in his study of Climatology. His Evapotranspiration research incorporates elements of Wet season, Land cover, Water cycle, Arid and Dry season.

Robert E. Dickinson integrates Atmospheric sciences and Standard deviation in his research. His Precipitation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Latent heat and Bowen ratio. His research investigates the connection with Subtropics and areas like Climate change which intersect with concerns in Meteorology.
