William G. Nickling mostly deals with Wind tunnel, Aeolian processes, Boundary layer, Geotechnical engineering and Sediment transport. Wind tunnel is a subfield of Mechanics that he tackles. Aeolian processes and Vegetation are two areas of study in which William G. Nickling engages in interdisciplinary research.
The concepts of his Boundary layer study are interwoven with issues in Wind speed and Wind profile power law. In his study, Saltation is strongly linked to Planetary boundary layer, which falls under the umbrella field of Wind speed. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Geotechnical engineering, Roughness length, Stress, Hydraulic roughness, Surface finish and Surface roughness is strongly linked to Shear stress.
William G. Nickling spends much of his time researching Aeolian processes, Wind tunnel, Sediment transport, Shear stress and Geomorphology. His research in Aeolian processes intersects with topics in Silt, Earth science, Soil water, Air quality index and Hydrology. His Wind tunnel study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Geotechnical engineering, Shear velocity, Saltation and Boundary layer.
His study looks at the intersection of Saltation and topics like Grain size with Particle size. His Shear stress research integrates issues from Surface roughness, Surface finish and Roughness length. His Geomorphology research incorporates themes from Crest, Wind speed and Magnitude.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Aeolian processes, Saltation, Sediment transport, Geomorphology and Atmospheric sciences. His Aeolian processes research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Earth science, Wind speed, Sediment, Hydrology and Remote sensing. His Saltation research includes themes of Mechanics, Meteorology and Grain size.
He combines subjects such as Surface finish, Shear velocity, Reynolds number and Shear stress with his study of Sediment transport. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Wind shear, Boundary layer, Entrainment, Surface roughness and Dust storm. William G. Nickling usually deals with Geomorphology and limits it to topics linked to Wind tunnel and Angle of repose, Aerodynamic drag, Geotechnical engineering, Permeability and Aerodynamics.
His main research concerns Aeolian processes, Sediment transport, Geomorphology, Saltation and Wind speed. His Aeolian processes research incorporates elements of Wavelength, Shear stress, Shear velocity, Atmospheric sciences and Wind tunnel. The various areas that William G. Nickling examines in his Shear velocity study include Earth science, Wind shear, Sediment, Boundary layer and Surface roughness.
William G. Nickling has included themes like Magnitude and Angle of repose in his Wind tunnel study. He has researched Sediment transport in several fields, including Arid, Dust storm, Landform and Entrainment. His Geomorphology study combines topics in areas such as Katabatic wind, Igneous rock and Ultramafic rock.
