Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Climatology

His primary scientific interests are in Plateau, Climatology, Glacier, Snow and Atmospheric sciences. He has researched Plateau in several fields, including Atmosphere, Climate change, Precipitation, Aerosol and Far East. His Climatology research incorporates elements of Global warming, Elevation and Radiative forcing.

His Glacier study combines topics in areas such as Hydrology, Monsoon of South Asia and Ice core. His Snow study also includes

  • Albedo together with Mineral dust,
  • Particulates that intertwine with fields like Snowmelt. His Atmospheric sciences study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Firn, Air mass and Altitude.

His most cited work include:

  • Review of climate and cryospheric change in the Tibetan Plateau (526 citations)
  • Changes in daily climate extremes in China and their connection to the large scale atmospheric circulation during 1961–2003 (353 citations)
  • Monitoring lake level changes on the Tibetan Plateau using ICESat altimetry data (2003-2009) (314 citations)

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

Shichang Kang focuses on Plateau, Glacier, Atmospheric sciences, Snow and Climatology. The various areas that Shichang Kang examines in his Plateau study include Precipitation, Aerosol, Hydrology, Environmental chemistry and Monsoon. His Glacier research incorporates themes from Glacial period, Ice core and Deposition.

His work in Atmospheric sciences addresses subjects such as Pollution, which are connected to disciplines such as Air pollution. The Snow study which covers Albedo that intersects with Cryoconite. The concepts of his Climatology study are interwoven with issues in Global warming, Climate change and Elevation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Plateau (64.45%)
  • Glacier (47.95%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (40.54%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Plateau (64.45%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (40.54%)
  • Glacier (47.95%)

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

Shichang Kang mainly focuses on Plateau, Atmospheric sciences, Glacier, Environmental chemistry and Snow. His research integrates issues of Climatology, Deposition, Global warming, Climate change and Precipitation in his study of Plateau. His Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Atmospheric mercury, Atmosphere, Particulates and Radiative forcing.

His work deals with themes such as Cryosphere and Glacial period, which intersect with Glacier. Shichang Kang combines subjects such as Pollutant, Seasonality and Aerosol with his study of Environmental chemistry. His Snow research integrates issues from Albedo, Elevation and Lapse rate.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Atmospheric microplastics: A review on current status and perspectives (98 citations)
  • Aerosol characteristics and impacts on weather and climate over the Tibetan Plateau (31 citations)
  • PM2.5 and O3 pollution during 2015-2019 over 367 Chinese cities: Spatiotemporal variations, meteorological and topographical impacts. (24 citations)
