Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Climate change
  • Ecology

Climate change, Agriculture, Agronomy, Crop yield and Yield are his primary areas of study. His Climate change research incorporates themes from Natural resource economics, Environmental resource management and Environmental protection. His Agriculture research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Agroforestry, Agricultural economics and Global change.

His study in the fields of Crop and Sowing under the domain of Agronomy overlaps with other disciplines such as Senescence. His Crop yield research includes elements of Hay, Meteorology, Precipitation and Agricultural science. His research in Yield tackles topics such as Growing season which are related to areas like Food availability.

His most cited work include:

  • Prioritizing Climate Change Adaptation Needs for Food Security in 2030 (2012 citations)
  • Prioritizing Climate Change Adaptation Needs for Food Security in 2030 (2012 citations)
  • Climate Trends and Global Crop Production Since 1980 (1986 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Climate change, Agriculture, Crop yield, Yield and Agronomy. His Climate change research includes themes of Climatology, Agricultural productivity and Food security. While the research belongs to areas of Agriculture, he spends his time largely on the problem of Natural resource economics, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Poverty.

In his research on the topic of Crop yield, Vegetation is strongly related with Remote sensing. David B. Lobell has included themes like Agricultural engineering, Statistics and Growing season in his Yield study. His is involved in several facets of Agronomy study, as is seen by his studies on Crop, Sowing and Irrigation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climate change (34.78%)
  • Agriculture (30.43%)
  • Crop yield (25.51%)

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

  • Artificial intelligence (8.12%)
  • Satellite imagery (9.28%)
  • Agriculture (30.43%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Artificial intelligence, Satellite imagery, Agriculture, Yield and Remote sensing. His Artificial intelligence study incorporates themes from Land cover and Machine learning. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Natural resource economics, Climate change and Growing season.

David B. Lobell combines topics linked to Irrigation with his work on Climate change. His Yield study results in a more complete grasp of Agronomy. His Remote sensing research incorporates elements of Yield mapping, Crop yield, Vegetation, Ground truth and Random forest.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Integrating satellite and climate data to predict wheat yield in Australia using machine learning approaches (65 citations)
  • Smallholder maize area and yield mapping at national scales with Google Earth Engine (64 citations)
  • Crop type mapping without field-level labels: Random forest transfer and unsupervised clustering techniques (63 citations)

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

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Climate change

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Artificial intelligence, Remote sensing, Satellite imagery, Random forest and Crop. David B. Lobell combines subjects such as Statistics and Cluster analysis with his study of Remote sensing. His Random forest study combines topics in areas such as Crop yield and Support vector machine.

His study looks at the relationship between Crop yield and fields such as Spatial heterogeneity, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His work in Agriculture addresses subjects such as Climate change, which are connected to disciplines such as Natural resource economics. His Crop study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Productivity, Environmental resource management and Yield.
