Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Ecosystem

His scientific interests lie mostly in Climatology, Climate change, Dendrochronology, Ecology and Physical geography. The Climatology study combines topics in areas such as Paleoclimatology and Global change. His study in the field of Climate model is also linked to topics like Context.

His studies in Dendrochronology integrate themes in fields like Picea abies and Abies alba. His research integrates issues of Carbon sequestration, Principal component analysis and Agronomy in his study of Ecology. His study looks at the relationship between Physical geography and fields such as Meteorology, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

His most cited work include:

  • 2500 Years of European Climate Variability and Human Susceptibility (816 citations)
  • 2500 Years of European Climate Variability and Human Susceptibility (816 citations)
  • Climate extremes and the carbon cycle (804 citations)

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

David Frank focuses on Climatology, Dendrochronology, Climate change, Ecology and Dendroclimatology. David Frank interconnects Paleoclimatology and Precipitation in the investigation of issues within Climatology. The concepts of his Dendrochronology study are interwoven with issues in Growing season, Temperate climate, Picea abies, Atmospheric sciences and Physical geography.

His Physical geography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Holocene and Water cycle. David Frank has researched Climate change in several fields, including Meteorology and Vegetation. His Dendroclimatology research integrates issues from Mediterranean climate and Chronology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climatology (42.08%)
  • Dendrochronology (43.75%)
  • Climate change (29.17%)

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

  • Dendrochronology (43.75%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (19.58%)
  • Ecology (27.08%)

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

David Frank mainly focuses on Dendrochronology, Atmospheric sciences, Ecology, Climate change and Climatology. His Dendrochronology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Temperate climate, Isotopes of carbon, Forestry, Taiga and Paleoceanography. When carried out as part of a general Atmospheric sciences research project, his work on Northern Hemisphere is frequently linked to work in Stomatal conductance, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

David Frank works mostly in the field of Climate change, limiting it down to topics relating to Biomass and, in certain cases, Forest dynamics. His Climatology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Natural, Climate model and Paleoclimatology. His research in Ecosystem focuses on subjects like Physical geography, which are connected to Global change, Climate response and Precipitation.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • European summer temperatures since Roman times (164 citations)
  • No growth stimulation of Canada's boreal forest under half-century of combined warming and CO2 fertilization. (129 citations)
  • No growth stimulation of Canada's boreal forest under half-century of combined warming and CO2 fertilization. (129 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Ecosystem

His primary areas of study are Northern Hemisphere, Atmospheric sciences, Climatology, Climate change and Ecosystem. He combines subjects such as Water use, Ecology, Uncertainty analysis and Xylem, Tracheid with his study of Northern Hemisphere. His Climatology research includes themes of Natural, Dendrochronology and Paleoclimatology.

His research on Dendrochronology often connects related topics like Boreal. His Climate change study combines topics in areas such as Sample and Data integration. David Frank has included themes like Temperate climate, Meteorology, Precipitation, Global warming and Physical geography in his Ecosystem study.
