What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Ecology
  • Climate change

Eric F. Wood mostly deals with Climatology, Meteorology, Hydrology, Evapotranspiration and Precipitation. He combines subjects such as Global warming, Streamflow, Water content, Scale and Data assimilation with his study of Climatology. His Meteorology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Remote sensing, Atmospheric sciences, Forcing and Heat flux.

His study in Evapotranspiration is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both FluxNet, Water balance and Satellite. His research integrates issues of Atmospheric temperature and Water cycle in his study of Precipitation. His Water cycle study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Trend surface analysis and Climate change.

His most cited work include:

  • A simple hydrologically based model of land surface water and energy fluxes for general circulation models (2490 citations)
  • Recent decline in the global land evapotranspiration trend due to limited moisture supply (1225 citations)
  • Development of a 50-Year High-Resolution Global Dataset of Meteorological Forcings for Land Surface Modeling (1179 citations)

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

Eric F. Wood mainly investigates Climatology, Meteorology, Remote sensing, Precipitation and Water content. In his research, Drainage basin and Infiltration is intimately related to Surface runoff, which falls under the overarching field of Climatology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Evapotranspiration and Forcing.

His Evapotranspiration research includes themes of Scale and Water balance. His Precipitation research includes elements of Forecast skill and Scale. His Water content study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Hydrology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climatology (30.80%)
  • Meteorology (22.17%)
  • Remote sensing (19.20%)

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

  • Climatology (30.80%)
  • Meteorology (22.17%)
  • Precipitation (16.96%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Climatology, Meteorology, Precipitation, Remote sensing and Hydrology. The Climatology study combines topics in areas such as Climate change, Climate model and Streamflow. His Meteorology study deals with Evapotranspiration intersecting with Water cycle.

In his study, Vegetation is strongly linked to Atmospheric sciences, which falls under the umbrella field of Precipitation. His studies examine the connections between Remote sensing and genetics, as well as such issues in Water content, with regards to Data assimilation and Microwave. His Hydrology research is within the category of Hydrology.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Present and future Köppen-Geiger climate classification maps at 1-km resolution (576 citations)
  • Global-scale evaluation of 22 precipitation datasets using gauge observations and hydrological modeling (248 citations)
  • The Future of Evapotranspiration: Global requirements for ecosystem functioning, carbon and climate feedbacks, agricultural management, and water resources (243 citations)

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

  • Statistics
  • Ecology
  • Meteorology

His scientific interests lie mostly in Meteorology, Climatology, Remote sensing, Precipitation and Evapotranspiration. His work carried out in the field of Meteorology brings together such families of science as Eddy covariance, FluxNet, Range, Forcing and Water cycle. His studies deal with areas such as Climate change, Streamflow, Atmospheric sciences and Hydrological modelling as well as Climatology.

Eric F. Wood has included themes like Water content, Environmental data, Infiltration, Brightness temperature and Atmospheric radiative transfer codes in his Remote sensing study. Gauge is closely connected to Scale in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Precipitation. His research investigates the connection with Evapotranspiration and areas like Water storage which intersect with concerns in Earth system science, Water balance and Global Precipitation Measurement.
