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

Charles T. Driscoll mainly investigates Environmental chemistry, Ecosystem, Methylmercury, Atmospheric sciences and Watershed. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Soil water, Food web and Nitrogen deposition. His research in Ecosystem intersects with topics in Experimental forest, Nitrate, Growing season and Acid neutralizing capacity.

Charles T. Driscoll has included themes like Deposition and STREAMS in his Acid neutralizing capacity study. Hydrology covers Charles T. Driscoll research in Watershed. His Hydrology research incorporates themes from Biomass, Leaching and Biogeochemical cycle.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Air pollution success stories in the United States: The value of long-term observations (50 citations)
  • Decreased atmospheric nitrogen deposition in eastern North America: Predicted responses of forest ecosystems. (46 citations)
  • Nitrogen oligotrophication in northern hardwood forests (37 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Agriculture

Ecosystem, Aquatic ecosystem, Environmental chemistry, Atmospheric sciences and Hydrology are his primary areas of study. His studies in Ecosystem integrate themes in fields like Experimental forest, Tree species and Growing season. His Experimental forest research incorporates elements of Biogeochemical cycle and Biogeochemistry.

His Environmental chemistry study incorporates themes from CMAQ, Food web and Sediment. His research on Atmospheric sciences also deals with topics like

  • Soil organic matter that connect with fields like Water content, Carbon dioxide, Transpiration, Nitrogen cycle and Stomatal conductance,
  • Deposition together with Nitrate, STREAMS, Acid neutralizing capacity, Climate change and Spatial variability. His work on Watershed as part of general Hydrology study is frequently linked to Green roof, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.
