Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Climate change
  • Microeconomics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Greenhouse gas, Climate change, Carbon sequestration, Environmental protection and Natural resource economics. His Greenhouse gas research includes themes of Agriculture, Environmental engineering and Land use. Brent Sohngen studies Land use, focusing on Land use, land-use change and forestry in particular.

His Climate change study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Ecological systems theory, Agricultural land, Scale and Environmental resource management. He interconnects Forest management, Agroforestry, Economic impact analysis and Forest ecology in the investigation of issues within Carbon sequestration. The study incorporates disciplines such as Kyoto Protocol and Carbon price in addition to Natural resource economics.

His most cited work include:

  • Global cost estimates of reducing carbon emissions through avoided deforestation (437 citations)
  • An Optimal Control Model of Forest Carbon Sequestration (284 citations)
  • Forest Management, Conservation, and Global Timber Markets (222 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Natural resource economics, Climate change, Greenhouse gas, Land use and Carbon sequestration. His studies in Natural resource economics integrate themes in fields like Production, Additionality, Climate change mitigation and Carbon credit. His study explores the link between Climate change and topics such as Environmental resource management that cross with problems in Global warming, Environmental planning and Ecosystem services.

Brent Sohngen focuses mostly in the field of Greenhouse gas, narrowing it down to matters related to Incentive and, in some cases, Nonpoint source pollution. His studies deal with areas such as Agriculture and General equilibrium theory as well as Land use. Brent Sohngen has researched Carbon sequestration in several fields, including Forest management, Marginal cost, Carbon offset and Environmental protection.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Natural resource economics (36.68%)
  • Climate change (29.26%)
  • Greenhouse gas (26.20%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Climate change (29.26%)
  • Natural resource economics (36.68%)
  • Carbon sequestration (25.76%)

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

Brent Sohngen focuses on Climate change, Natural resource economics, Carbon sequestration, Agroforestry and Environmental resource management. The concepts of his Climate change study are interwoven with issues in Carbon storage and Environmental protection. He has included themes like Climate change mitigation and Logging in his Natural resource economics study.

His study in Carbon sequestration is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Biomass, Bioenergy, Greenhouse gas, Forest product and Property rights. His Agroforestry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Deforestation and Land use. His Environmental resource management research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Temperate forest, Ecosystem, Ecosystem services and Summit.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global solutions to regional problems: Collecting global expertise to address the problem of harmful cyanobacterial blooms. A Lake Erie case study. (122 citations)
  • Global climate change impacts on forests and markets (31 citations)
  • Ecosystem services in the Great Lakes. (28 citations)

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

  • Agriculture
  • Microeconomics
  • Climate change

Brent Sohngen mostly deals with Natural resource economics, Environmental resource management, Carbon sequestration, Climate change and Greenhouse gas. The Natural resource economics study combines topics in areas such as Climate change mitigation, Deforestation, Sustainable management, Overexploitation and Sustainable forest management. His Environmental resource management research incorporates elements of Resource, Ecosystem health, Ecosystem services, Summit and Variety.

His Carbon sequestration research includes elements of Biomass and Bioenergy. The various areas that Brent Sohngen examines in his Climate change study include Carbon flux, Land management and Environmental protection. His Greenhouse gas study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Dynamic global vegetation model and Primary production.
