2019 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Climate change

Permafrost, Permafrost carbon cycle, Yedoma, Climate change and Soil science are his primary areas of study. His research in Permafrost intersects with topics in Soil carbon, Tundra and Physical geography. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cryosphere and Carbon dioxide in addition to Permafrost carbon cycle.

His Climate change research incorporates elements of Climatology, Atmospheric sciences and Greenhouse gas. His Atmospheric sciences research focuses on Carbon cycle and how it connects with Ecosystem respiration. His research integrates issues of Organic matter and Total organic carbon in his study of Soil science.

His most cited work include:

  • Soil organic carbon pools in the northern circumpolar permafrost region (1686 citations)
  • Climate change and the permafrost carbon feedback (1300 citations)
  • Climate change and the permafrost carbon feedback (1300 citations)

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

Edward A. G. Schuur mainly investigates Permafrost, Tundra, Soil carbon, Ecosystem and Ecology. The various areas that Edward A. G. Schuur examines in his Permafrost study include Soil science, Soil water, Permafrost carbon cycle, Climate change and Atmospheric sciences. His Permafrost carbon cycle study incorporates themes from Carbon dioxide and Yedoma.

The Tundra study which covers Soil organic matter that intersects with Soil classification. Edward A. G. Schuur interconnects Thermokarst, Soil respiration, Global warming, Carbon cycle and Physical geography in the investigation of issues within Soil carbon. His work in Ecosystem tackles topics such as Nutrient which are related to areas like Botany.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Permafrost (61.54%)
  • Tundra (38.08%)
  • Soil carbon (30.38%)

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

  • Permafrost (61.54%)
  • Tundra (38.08%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (22.69%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Permafrost, Tundra, Atmospheric sciences, Ecosystem and Soil carbon. His Permafrost research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Soil water, Climate change, Arctic, Physical geography and Environmental chemistry. His Tundra research integrates issues from Plant community, Ecosystem respiration and Organic matter.

His Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Boreal, Wetland, Greenhouse gas and Taiga. His research in Ecosystem tackles topics such as Global warming which are related to areas like Water content, Carbon cycle and Environmental protection. As a part of the same scientific family, Edward A. G. Schuur mostly works in the field of Soil carbon, focusing on Soil respiration and, on occasion, Q10, Climate change feedback, Thermokarst and Ecosystem model.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Carbon release through abrupt permafrost thaw (87 citations)
  • Increasing wildfires threaten historic carbon sink of boreal forest soils (85 citations)
  • Large loss of CO2 in winter observed across the northern permafrost region (62 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Climate change

Edward A. G. Schuur focuses on Permafrost, Tundra, Soil water, Soil carbon and Ecosystem. His Permafrost study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Atmospheric sciences and Arctic. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Tundra, concentrating on Ecosystem respiration and frequently concerns with Soil science, Organic matter, Respiration and Animal science.

His study explores the link between Soil water and topics such as Environmental chemistry that cross with problems in Methanogenesis and Abundance. His Soil carbon research includes elements of Global warming and Soil chemistry. His research investigates the connection with Greenhouse gas and areas like Wetland which intersect with concerns in Climate change.
