Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Meteorology
  • Aerosol
  • Atmosphere of Earth

His primary areas of study are Environmental science, Aerosol, Atmospheric sciences, Climatology and Atmosphere. His Environmental science research spans across into subjects like Radiative forcing, Forcing, Albedo, Optical depth and Seasonality. His research on Aerosol frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Spatial distribution.

The various areas that S. K. Satheesh examines in his Atmospheric sciences study include Indian ocean and Cloud forcing. S. K. Satheesh interconnects Angstrom exponent, Bay, Earth's energy budget and Sea salt aerosol in the investigation of issues within Climatology. S. K. Satheesh studied Atmosphere and Atmospheric radiative transfer codes that intersect with Lidar, Radiant energy and Diffuse sky radiation.

His most cited work include:

  • Indian Ocean Experiment: An integrated analysis of the climate forcing and effects of the great Indo-Asian haze (1143 citations)
  • Clouds and Aerosols (605 citations)
  • Large differences in tropical aerosol forcing at the top of the atmosphere and Earth's surface (480 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Aerosol, Environmental science, Atmospheric sciences, Climatology and Radiative forcing. His Aerosol research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Albedo, Atmosphere, Forcing and Monsoon. His Atmosphere research integrates issues from Wind speed and Atmospheric radiative transfer codes.

S. K. Satheesh works mostly in the field of Atmospheric sciences, limiting it down to topics relating to Altitude and, in certain cases, Backscatter. His work on Troposphere as part of general Climatology research is often related to Mass concentration, Mass fraction and Advection, thus linking different fields of science. His Radiative forcing research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Mineral dust, Longwave and Haze.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Aerosol (99.24%)
  • Environmental science (88.55%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (64.12%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2015)?

  • Aerosol (99.24%)
  • Environmental science (88.55%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (64.12%)

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

Aerosol, Environmental science, Atmospheric sciences, Climatology and Meteorology are his primary areas of study. His work on Single-scattering albedo is typically connected to Planetary boundary layer as part of general Aerosol study, connecting several disciplines of science. His Environmental science investigation overlaps with other areas such as Altitude, Troposphere, Atmosphere, Mass fraction and Radiative forcing.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Atmospheric composition, Sea salt, Spatial distribution and Wind speed in addition to Atmospheric sciences. His work deals with themes such as Air mass, Climate change and Precipitation, which intersect with Climatology. When carried out as part of a general Meteorology research project, his work on Mineral dust is frequently linked to work in Arid, Fraction and Ground level, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

Between 2009 and 2015, his most popular works were:

  • Clouds and Aerosols (605 citations)
  • Trends in aerosol optical depth over Indian region: Potential causes and impact indicators (137 citations)
  • Buildup of aerosols over the Indian Region (117 citations)

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

  • Meteorology
  • Atmosphere of Earth
  • Climate change

S. K. Satheesh mainly focuses on Environmental science, Aerosol, Climatology, Atmospheric sciences and Monsoon. He integrates Environmental science with Radiative forcing in his research. He combines subjects such as Air mass, Radiative flux and Radiometer with his study of Radiative forcing.

His Forcing and Troposphere study, which is part of a larger body of work in Climatology, is frequently linked to Mass fraction, bridging the gap between disciplines. S. K. Satheesh has included themes like Atmosphere, Single-scattering albedo, Lapse rate and Altitude in his Troposphere study. His Atmospheric sciences study combines topics in areas such as Atmospheric radiative transfer codes and Earth's energy budget.
