2007 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)


What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Carbon dioxide

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Eddy covariance, Atmospheric sciences, Hydrology, Ecosystem and Ecology. His research integrates issues of Primary production, Vegetation and Growing season in his study of Eddy covariance. His study in Atmospheric sciences is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Atmosphere, Meteorology, Water vapor, Biosphere and Deciduous.

Dennis D. Baldocchi has researched Hydrology in several fields, including Soil water, Trace gas, Terrestrial ecosystem and Leaf area index. His work focuses on many connections between FluxNet and other disciplines, such as Evapotranspiration, that overlap with his field of interest in Vapour Pressure Deficit and Water balance. His study looks at the relationship between Ecosystem respiration and topics such as Flux footprint, which overlap with Wind speed.

His 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)
  • On the Separation of Net Ecosystem Exchange into Assimilation and Ecosystem Respiration: Review and Improved Algorithm (2050 citations)
  • Assessing the eddy covariance technique for evaluating carbon dioxide exchange rates of ecosystems: past, present and future (1720 citations)

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

Atmospheric sciences, Eddy covariance, Hydrology, Canopy and Ecosystem are his primary areas of study. His Atmospheric sciences research incorporates elements of Atmosphere, Meteorology, Biosphere and Deciduous. The study incorporates disciplines such as Primary production, Climatology and Carbon dioxide in addition to Eddy covariance.

His study looks at the intersection of Hydrology and topics like Soil water with Growing season. His biological study deals with issues like Leaf area index, which deal with fields such as Remote sensing. His Ecosystem study contributes to a more complete understanding of Ecology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Atmospheric sciences (37.99%)
  • Eddy covariance (33.15%)
  • Hydrology (26.63%)

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

  • Atmospheric sciences (37.99%)
  • Eddy covariance (33.15%)
  • Ecosystem (18.25%)

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

Dennis D. Baldocchi focuses on Atmospheric sciences, Eddy covariance, Ecosystem, Hydrology and Wetland. His studies deal with areas such as Photosynthesis, Canopy, Evapotranspiration, Vegetation and FluxNet as well as Atmospheric sciences. His Vegetation research integrates issues from Primary production, Deciduous and Growing season.

He combines subjects such as Climatology, Meteorology, Phenology and Water content with his study of Eddy covariance. Ecosystem is a primary field of his research addressed under Ecology. His study in the field of San Joaquin, Marsh and Hydrology also crosses realms of Biogeosciences.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Future of Evapotranspiration: Global requirements for ecosystem functioning, carbon and climate feedbacks, agricultural management, and water resources (243 citations)
  • Warm spring reduced carbon cycle impact of the 2012 US summer drought (198 citations)
  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Statistics

His main research concerns Eddy covariance, Ecosystem, Atmospheric sciences, Wetland and Hydrology. His Eddy covariance research includes themes of Climatology, Meteorology, Precipitation, Evapotranspiration and Carbon sink. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Carbon dioxide and Water content.

His Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Wetland methane emissions, Subsurface flow and Water table. His Hydrology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Primary production, Ecosystem science, Atmospheric turbulence and Conditional sampling. His Carbon cycle study also includes

  • FluxNet that intertwine with fields like Representativeness heuristic,
  • Photosynthesis which intersects with area such as Respiration and Canopy.
