What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • World War II
  • Law
  • Climate change

His primary areas of study are Climatology, Climate change, Mesoscale meteorology, Meteorology and Atmospheric sciences. He studies Climatology, namely Regional Atmospheric Modeling System. The various areas that Roger A. Pielke examines in his Climate change study include Natural resource economics, Environmental resource management, Weather and climate and Greenhouse gas.

His research investigates the link between Mesoscale meteorology and topics such as Diurnal cycle that cross with problems in Spatial ecology. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Grid and Meteorology. As a part of the same scientific family, Roger A. Pielke mostly works in the field of Atmospheric sciences, focusing on Aerosol and, on occasion, Cloud cover.

His most cited work include:

  • A comprehensive meteorological modeling system?RAMS (1512 citations)
  • Mesoscale meteorological modeling (1118 citations)
  • Abrupt climate change (1052 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Climatology, Meteorology, Atmospheric sciences, Mesoscale meteorology and Climate change. His Climatology study combines topics in areas such as Land cover, Climate model and Precipitation. Roger A. Pielke regularly links together related areas like Computer simulation in his Meteorology studies.

His work carried out in the field of Atmospheric sciences brings together such families of science as Planetary boundary layer, Boundary layer and Atmosphere. His studies deal with areas such as Atmospheric dispersion modeling, Terrain, Atmospheric models, Sea breeze and Mechanics as well as Mesoscale meteorology. The Climate change study combines topics in areas such as Natural resource economics, Greenhouse gas and Environmental resource management.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climatology (31.48%)
  • Meteorology (25.24%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (19.14%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

  • Climatology (31.48%)
  • Climate change (11.93%)
  • Precipitation (8.18%)

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

His main research concerns Climatology, Climate change, Precipitation, Environmental resource management and Atmospheric sciences. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Land cover, Meteorology and Climate model. The concepts of his Climate change study are interwoven with issues in Natural resource economics, Natural disaster, Greenhouse gas and Environmental planning.

His Precipitation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Hydrology and Vegetation. His Environmental resource management research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Political economy of climate change and Water resources. Roger A. Pielke interconnects Humidity and Radiative forcing in the investigation of issues within Atmospheric sciences.

Between 2010 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Land use/land cover changes and climate: modeling analysis and observational evidence (458 citations)
  • Land cover changes and their biogeophysical effects on climate (365 citations)
  • Regional climate downscaling: What's the point? (137 citations)

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

  • World War II
  • Law
  • Climate change

His primary scientific interests are in Climatology, Climate change, Land cover, Precipitation and Hydrology. His studies in Climatology integrate themes in fields like Meteorology, Climate model, Radiative forcing and Historical climatology. His Meteorology research includes elements of Development, Economic impact analysis and Surface.

His Climate change research incorporates elements of Reinsurance, Economy, Environmental resource management and Greenhouse gas. Roger A. Pielke has researched Precipitation in several fields, including Steppe, Terrain, Energy balance, Semi-arid climate and Vegetation. His Hydrology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Shore and Regional Atmospheric Modeling System.
