Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Carbon dioxide

His primary scientific interests are in Eddy covariance, Ecosystem, FluxNet, Hydrology and Ecology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Co2 exchange, Agricultural land and Carbon sink in addition to Eddy covariance. In general Ecosystem, his work in Ecosystem respiration and Terrestrial ecosystem is often linked to Business, Natural resource economics and Profit linking many areas of study.

While the research belongs to areas of Ecosystem respiration, he spends his time largely on the problem of Carbon cycle, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Carbon sequestration. As a part of the same scientific family, Alexander Knohl mostly works in the field of FluxNet, focusing on Deciduous and, on occasion, Evergreen forest, Mediterranean climate, Numerical weather prediction and Phenology. His studies deal with areas such as Primary production, Vapour Pressure Deficit, Transpiration and Vegetation as well as Hydrology.

His most cited work include:

  • Europe-wide reduction in primary productivity caused by the heat and drought in 2003 (2547 citations)
  • On the Separation of Net Ecosystem Exchange into Assimilation and Ecosystem Respiration: Review and Improved Algorithm (2050 citations)
  • On the Separation of Net Ecosystem Exchange into Assimilation and Ecosystem Respiration: Review and Improved Algorithm (2050 citations)

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

Alexander Knohl mainly investigates Atmospheric sciences, Eddy covariance, Ecosystem, Evapotranspiration and Canopy. His work carried out in the field of Atmospheric sciences brings together such families of science as Hydrology, Atmosphere, Vapour Pressure Deficit and Isotopes of carbon. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Primary production, Carbon dioxide and Deciduous.

His study with Ecosystem involves better knowledge in Ecology. His Evapotranspiration study incorporates themes from Energy balance, Water-use efficiency, Precipitation, Surface runoff and Water cycle. In his study, Laser spectrometry is strongly linked to Fagus sylvatica, which falls under the umbrella field of Canopy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Atmospheric sciences (39.30%)
  • Eddy covariance (36.68%)
  • Ecosystem (23.14%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Atmospheric sciences (39.30%)
  • Eddy covariance (36.68%)
  • Evapotranspiration (15.72%)

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

His primary areas of study are Atmospheric sciences, Eddy covariance, Evapotranspiration, Agroforestry and Ecosystem. His Atmospheric sciences research incorporates themes from Vapour Pressure Deficit, Transpiration, Climate change and FluxNet. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of FluxNet, Spatial variability is strongly linked to Leaf area index.

His Eddy covariance research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Ecosystem carbon, Energy balance and Gross primary productivity. His studies in Evapotranspiration integrate themes in fields like Latent heat, Drone and Water cycle. His Ecosystem study results in a more complete grasp of Ecology.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Trade-offs between multifunctionality and profit in tropical smallholder landscapes (359 citations)
  • The FLUXNET2015 dataset and the ONEFlux processing pipeline for eddy covariance data (67 citations)
  • Measured greenhouse gas budgets challenge emission savings from palm-oil biodiesel. (19 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Carbon dioxide

His primary areas of investigation include Evapotranspiration, Atmospheric sciences, Eddy covariance, Monoculture and Rainforest. In his research, Haze, Ecohydrology, FluxNet and Spatial variability is intimately related to Vapour Pressure Deficit, which falls under the overarching field of Evapotranspiration. Atmospheric sciences and Sensitivity are two areas of study in which he engages in interdisciplinary work.

Alexander Knohl performs integrative study on Eddy covariance and Metadata. His Monoculture research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Land use and Livelihood. His Rainforest study also includes fields such as

  • Tropics which intersects with area such as Soil retrogression and degradation,
  • Water use together with Water cycle, Interception and Canopy.
