Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Meteorology
  • Tropical cyclone
  • Precipitation

Wei-Kuo Tao spends much of his time researching Meteorology, Atmospheric sciences, Convection, Precipitation and Climatology. As part of the same scientific family, Wei-Kuo Tao usually focuses on Meteorology, concentrating on Remote sensing and intersecting with Global Precipitation Measurement and Rain rate. His Atmospheric sciences study which covers Cloud physics that intersects with Cloud cover.

His Squall line, Squall and Free convective layer study in the realm of Convection interacts with subjects such as Phase. The concepts of his Precipitation study are interwoven with issues in Microwave radiometer, Latent heat and Longwave. His research in Climatology intersects with topics in Climate model and Water cycle.

His most cited work include:

  • Goddard Cumulus Ensemble Model. Part I: Model Description (621 citations)
  • Impact of aerosols on convective clouds and precipitation (480 citations)
  • An Ice-Water Saturation Adjustment (365 citations)

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

Wei-Kuo Tao focuses on Meteorology, Atmospheric sciences, Climatology, Convection and Precipitation. The various areas that he examines in his Meteorology study include Remote sensing and Cloud physics. He has researched Atmospheric sciences in several fields, including Water vapor, Microphysics, Squall line and Aerosol.

The Climatology study combines topics in areas such as Atmosphere and Climate model. His Convection research includes themes of Wind shear, Middle latitudes, Mixing ratio and Radiative cooling. His research investigates the connection between Precipitation and topics such as Latent heat that intersect with issues in Sensible heat and Atmospheric circulation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Meteorology (50.88%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (46.46%)
  • Climatology (45.58%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2020)?

  • Climatology (45.58%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (46.46%)
  • Meteorology (50.88%)

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

His main research concerns Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Meteorology, Precipitation and Convection. In the subject of general Climatology, his work in Mesoscale meteorology and Monsoon is often linked to Population and Scale model, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Atmospheric models, Microphysics, Bin and Aerosol.

His study in Meteorology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Grid, Climate model and Cloud physics. His Precipitation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Remote sensing, Radiance, Water content and Weather Research and Forecasting Model. His studies in Convection integrate themes in fields like Range, Water vapor, Algorithm, Evaporation and Global Precipitation Measurement.

Between 2012 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • The Influence of Soil Moisture, Coastline Curvature, and Land-Breeze Circulations on Sea-Breeze Initiated Precipitation (86 citations)
  • Integrated modeling of aerosol, cloud, precipitation and land processes at satellite-resolved scales (68 citations)
  • Global precipitation measurements for validating climate models (62 citations)
