Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecosystem
  • Climate change
  • Meteorology

His main research concerns Climatology, Taiga, Climate change, Fire season and Fire regime. The concepts of his Taiga study are interwoven with issues in Boreal and Greenhouse gas. He interconnects Biometeorology, Lightning, Meteorology and Forestry in the investigation of issues within Boreal.

His study ties his expertise on Precipitation together with the subject of Climate change. His Fire season research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Ecozone, General Circulation Model and Ecosystem, Disturbance. His work focuses on many connections between Fire regime and other disciplines, such as Global warming, that overlap with his field of interest in Climate model, Northern Hemisphere and Global change.

His most cited work include:

  • Large forest fires in Canada, 1959–1997 (708 citations)
  • Climate change and forest fires (606 citations)
  • Climate Change and Forest Fire Potential in Russian and Canadian Boreal Forests (542 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Boreal, Fire regime, Climatology, Taiga and Forestry. His Boreal research includes themes of Peat, Bog, Ecozone and Debris. His Fire regime research incorporates elements of Global warming, Environmental resource management and Environmental protection.

His Climatology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Moisture, Atmosphere, Climate change and Precipitation. His research integrates issues of Lightning and Climate model in his study of Taiga. His Forestry research incorporates themes from Crown Fire, Crown, Meteorology and Fire ecology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Boreal (45.61%)
  • Fire regime (42.11%)
  • Climatology (42.11%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Boreal (45.61%)
  • Peat (28.07%)
  • Hydrology (28.07%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Boreal, Peat, Hydrology, Smouldering and Water content. His biological study deals with issues like Debris, which deal with fields such as Ombrotrophic and Minerotrophic. His Peat study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Drainage and Black spruce.

His study focuses on the intersection of Hydrology and fields such as Fire regime with connections in the field of Environmental resource management. The various areas that B. M. Wotton examines in his Water content study include Moisture, Climatology and Soil water. His work on Taiga expands to the thematically related General Circulation Model.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Fuel moisture sensitivity to temperature and precipitation: climate change implications (102 citations)
  • Fuel moisture sensitivity to temperature and precipitation: climate change implications (102 citations)
  • Potential climate change impacts on fire intensity and key wildfire suppression thresholds in Canada (90 citations)

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

  • Ecosystem
  • Climate change
  • Meteorology

Hydrology, Peat, Fire regime, Drop and Vegetation composition are his primary areas of study. His research in Hydrology intersects with topics in Soil classification, Soil carbon, Soil organic matter and Bulk density. His Peat study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Boreal.

His Fire regime research integrates issues from General Circulation Model and Taiga. His studies in Drop integrate themes in fields like Ecosystem and Drainage.
