2016 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)


What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climatology
  • Oceanography
  • Climate change

Shang-Ping Xie mainly focuses on Climatology, Sea surface temperature, Oceanography, Global warming and Atmospheric sciences. His Climatology research includes elements of Climate model and Precipitation. His Climate model research includes themes of Tropical cyclone and Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation.

He has included themes like Atmosphere, Thermocline, Ocean current, Atmospheric model and Intertropical Convergence Zone in his Sea surface temperature study. He interconnects La Niña and Multivariate ENSO index in the investigation of issues within Global warming. His Global warming hiatus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Greenhouse effect, Global temperature, Radiative forcing and Climate sensitivity.

His most cited work include:

  • Indian Ocean Capacitor Effect on Indo–Western Pacific Climate during the Summer following El Niño (1040 citations)
  • Recent global-warming hiatus tied to equatorial Pacific surface cooling (1021 citations)
  • Recent global-warming hiatus tied to equatorial Pacific surface cooling (1021 citations)

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

Shang-Ping Xie mainly investigates Climatology, Sea surface temperature, Oceanography, Atmospheric sciences and Climate model. The study incorporates disciplines such as Global warming and Precipitation in addition to Climatology. His Sea surface temperature research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Teleconnection, Atmosphere, Equator and Atmospheric circulation.

His work carried out in the field of Oceanography brings together such families of science as Eddy and Mode water. His studies deal with areas such as Hadley cell, Baroclinity and Coupled model intercomparison project as well as Atmospheric sciences. His studies in Climate model integrate themes in fields like Kelvin wave and Greenhouse gas.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climatology (108.52%)
  • Sea surface temperature (51.11%)
  • Oceanography (38.52%)

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

  • Climatology (108.52%)
  • Global warming (26.85%)
  • Forcing (18.33%)

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

Climatology, Global warming, Forcing, El Niño Southern Oscillation and Atmospheric sciences are his primary areas of study. His Climatology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Tropical pacific, Climate model and Intertropical Convergence Zone. His Forcing research includes themes of Northern Hemisphere, Pacific decadal oscillation, Internal variability and Aerosol.

In general El Niño Southern Oscillation study, his work on Teleconnection often relates to the realm of Oscillation, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His work deals with themes such as Radiation fog, Southern Hemisphere and Boundary layer, which intersect with Atmospheric sciences. His research integrates issues of Atmospheric circulation and Precipitation in his study of Sea surface temperature.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Pantropical Climate Interactions (183 citations)
  • Polar amplification dominated by local forcing and feedbacks (83 citations)
  • Increasing occurrence of cold and warm extremes during the recent global warming slowdown (52 citations)

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

  • Oceanography
  • Climatology
  • Meteorology

His primary areas of study are Climatology, Forcing, Climate model, Global warming and Intertropical Convergence Zone. His work in Climatology covers topics such as Surface air temperature which are related to areas like Empirical orthogonal functions. His Forcing study also includes

  • Pacific decadal oscillation and related Southern Hemisphere and Atmospheric sciences,
  • Tropical Atlantic which intersects with area such as Surface warming, Teleconnection and Atlantic Equatorial mode.

Shang-Ping Xie combines subjects such as Atmosphere, Downwelling, Kelvin wave and La Niña with his study of Climate model. When carried out as part of a general Global warming research project, his work on Global warming hiatus is frequently linked to work in Predictability, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. The Monsoon study combines topics in areas such as Atmospheric change, Sea surface temperature, Precipitation and Aerosol.
