2014 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)


What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Statistics

Her primary areas of investigation include Eddy covariance, Ecosystem, Atmospheric sciences, Primary production and Carbon cycle. Her Eddy covariance research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Climatology, Photosynthetically active radiation, Latent heat, Biome and Data assimilation. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Soil water and Forestry.

Her Atmospheric sciences research incorporates elements of Atmosphere, Meteorology, Convection, Climate model and FluxNet. Her studies in FluxNet integrate themes in fields like Hydrology, Evapotranspiration, Climate change and Terrestrial ecosystem. Her work deals with themes such as Carbon sequestration, Soil organic matter and Forest ecology, which intersect with Carbon cycle.

Her most cited work include:

  • FLUXNET: A New Tool to Study the Temporal and Spatial Variability of Ecosystem-Scale Carbon Dioxide, Water Vapor, and Energy Flux Densities (2698 citations)
  • Energy balance closure at FLUXNET sites (1621 citations)
  • Gap filling strategies for defensible annual sums of net ecosystem exchange (1352 citations)

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

Beverly E. Law spends much of her time researching Ecosystem, Atmospheric sciences, Eddy covariance, Ecology and Carbon cycle. Her studies deal with areas such as Soil water and Climatology as well as Ecosystem. The various areas that Beverly E. Law examines in her Atmospheric sciences study include Latent heat, Canopy, Biosphere and Vegetation.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Hydrology, Meteorology and Terrestrial ecosystem in addition to Eddy covariance. Her Carbon cycle study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Carbon sequestration and Soil organic matter. Her FluxNet research includes themes of Deciduous and Biome.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecosystem (32.88%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (30.85%)
  • Eddy covariance (28.14%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Ecosystem (32.88%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (30.85%)
  • Climate change (10.17%)

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

Beverly E. Law mostly deals with Ecosystem, Atmospheric sciences, Climate change, Eddy covariance and Ecology. Her Ecosystem study incorporates themes from Biodiversity and Greenhouse gas. Her Atmospheric sciences research includes elements of Primary production, Ecosystem respiration, Canopy, Land cover and Vegetation.

The concepts of her Ecosystem respiration study are interwoven with issues in FluxNet and Deciduous. As a part of the same scientific study, she usually deals with the Eddy covariance, concentrating on Biosphere and frequently concerns with Data assimilation. Her research in the fields of Evapotranspiration and Biomass overlaps with other disciplines such as Trait and Extensive data.

Between 2014 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Warm spring reduced carbon cycle impact of the 2012 US summer drought (198 citations)
  • Within-species patterns challenge our understanding of the leaf economics spectrum. (80 citations)
  • Land use strategies to mitigate climate change in carbon dense temperate forests (71 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Statistics

Her primary areas of investigation include Ecosystem, Primary production, Ecology, Spatial variability and Eddy covariance. Her studies in Ecosystem integrate themes in fields like Carbon sequestration, Climate change and Greenhouse gas. Primary production is closely attributed to Atmospheric sciences in her work.

Her Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Mediterranean climate and Evergreen. Her research integrates issues of Hydrology, Evapotranspiration and Remote sensing, Remote sensing in her study of Spatial variability. Eddy covariance is closely attributed to Biosphere in her study.
