Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • World War II
  • Climate change
  • Meteorology

His primary areas of investigation include Atmospheric sciences, Climatology, Aerosol, Radiative forcing and Climate change. His work carried out in the field of Atmospheric sciences brings together such families of science as Air pollution and Atmosphere. His work deals with themes such as Mineral dust, Radiative transfer, Climate model and Greenhouse gas, which intersect with Climatology.

He interconnects Atmospheric temperature, Precipitation and Water cycle in the investigation of issues within Aerosol. His Radiative forcing research incorporates elements of Chemical transport model and Optical depth. His Climate change study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Tropospheric ozone, Planet, Carbon dioxide and Biosphere.

His most cited work include:

  • Planetary boundaries: Guiding human development on a changing planet (3752 citations)
  • Planetary boundaries: Guiding human development on a changing planet (3752 citations)
  • Aerosols, climate, and the hydrological cycle (2662 citations)

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

Veerabhadran Ramanathan spends much of his time researching Atmospheric sciences, Climatology, Aerosol, Climate change and Radiative forcing. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Atmosphere, Meteorology, Cloud forcing and Radiative transfer. As a part of the same scientific study, Veerabhadran Ramanathan usually deals with the Climatology, concentrating on Albedo and frequently concerns with Cloud albedo.

In the field of Aerosol, his study on Optical depth, Single-scattering albedo and AERONET overlaps with subjects such as Soot. Global warming is the focus of his Climate change research. In Global warming, Veerabhadran Ramanathan works on issues like Greenhouse gas, which are connected to Greenhouse effect.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Atmospheric sciences (49.08%)
  • Climatology (40.80%)
  • Aerosol (24.85%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Climate change (21.78%)
  • Global warming (16.56%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (49.08%)

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

Veerabhadran Ramanathan mostly deals with Climate change, Global warming, Atmospheric sciences, Climatology and Environmental protection. His Climate change study incorporates themes from Environmental planning, Natural resource economics, Planet, Air pollution and Earth system science. His research integrates issues of Data science, Biosphere, Human development and Underpinning in his study of Planet.

His study in the field of Global dimming is also linked to topics like Political science. His Atmospheric sciences research includes themes of Arctic ice pack, Absorption and Radiative forcing, Aerosol. When carried out as part of a general Climatology research project, his work on Cryosphere is frequently linked to work in Ice-albedo feedback and Arctic geoengineering, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Planetary boundaries: Guiding human development on a changing planet (3752 citations)
  • Planetary boundaries: Guiding human development on a changing planet (3752 citations)
  • Brown carbon: a significant atmospheric absorber of solar radiation? (322 citations)

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

  • World War II
  • Climate change
  • Meteorology

His primary areas of investigation include Climate change, Atmospheric sciences, Global warming, Environmental protection and Radiative forcing. His Climate change research integrates issues from Natural resource economics, Planet and Earth system science. His Earth system science research incorporates themes from Biosphere, Human development, Underpinning, Planetary boundaries and Data science.

The Atmospheric sciences study combines topics in areas such as Climatology, Meteorology, Aerosol and Climate model. The various areas that Veerabhadran Ramanathan examines in his Environmental protection study include Greenhouse effect, Global temperature, Carbon sink, Greenhouse gas and Air pollution. Veerabhadran Ramanathan works mostly in the field of Radiative forcing, limiting it down to concerns involving Absorption and, occasionally, Atmospheric radiative transfer codes, Optical depth, Atmosphere, Chemical transport model and Chemical composition.
