Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • Global warming
  • Oceanography

His scientific interests lie mostly in Oceanography, Climate change, Ice core, Climatology and Glacial period. His research investigates the connection between Oceanography and topics such as Carbon cycle that intersect with issues in Isotopes of carbon, Atmosphere, Measure and Surface water. Thomas F. Stocker interconnects Atmospheric sciences and Greenhouse gas in the investigation of issues within Climate change.

His work carried out in the field of Ice core brings together such families of science as Ice age, Ice sheet, Holocene, Interglacial and Ice-sheet model. Within one scientific family, Thomas F. Stocker focuses on topics pertaining to Intertropical Convergence Zone under Climatology, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Monsoon and Orbital forcing. His Glacial period study incorporates themes from Climate state and Physical geography.

His most cited work include:

  • Climate Change 2013: The Physical Science Basis (6478 citations)
  • Global climate projections (3400 citations)
  • Managing the risks of extreme events and disasters to advance climate change adaptation. Special report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. (3043 citations)

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

Climatology, Ice core, Oceanography, Atmospheric sciences and Climate change are his primary areas of study. His Climatology research focuses on Climate model and how it relates to Climate state. His studies in Ice core integrate themes in fields like Glacial period, Interglacial, European Project for Ice Coring in Antarctica, Ice sheet and Dome.

His study in Oceanography is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ice age and Carbon cycle. The study incorporates disciplines such as Atmosphere and Greenhouse gas in addition to Atmospheric sciences. His Climate change study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Meteorology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climatology (60.87%)
  • Ice core (33.51%)
  • Oceanography (29.89%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Climatology (60.87%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (26.09%)
  • Greenhouse gas (11.41%)

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

His main research concerns Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Greenhouse gas, Glacial period and Climate model. The concepts of his Climatology study are interwoven with issues in Precipitation, Climate change and Interglacial. His study looks at the intersection of Climate change and topics like Arid with Global change.

His studies deal with areas such as Atmosphere and Sea ice as well as Atmospheric sciences. His Glacial period research includes themes of Sediment and Ice core. His work investigates the relationship between Ice core and topics such as Volcano that intersect with problems in Abrupt climate change and δ18O.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Projected drought risk in 1.5°C and 2°C warmer climates (114 citations)
  • Projected drought risk in 1.5°C and 2°C warmer climates (114 citations)
  • Palaeoclimate constraints on the impact of 2 °C anthropogenic warming and beyond (75 citations)

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

  • Climate change
  • Global warming
  • Statistics

Thomas F. Stocker spends much of his time researching Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Climate model, Atmosphere and Sea ice. His research in Climatology intersects with topics in Glacial period, Climate system and Radiative forcing. His Glacial period research includes elements of Intertropical Convergence Zone, Land ice, Ice core and Before Present.

His work on Zonal and meridional and Atmospheric circulation as part of general Atmospheric sciences research is frequently linked to Heat flux, bridging the gap between disciplines. Climate model is a subfield of Climate change that Thomas F. Stocker tackles. His Climate change study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Arid and Impact assessment.
