What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • Global warming
  • Carbon dioxide

Fortunat Joos mostly deals with Climatology, Carbon cycle, Climate change, Global warming and Greenhouse gas. The study incorporates disciplines such as Global temperature, Carbon sink and Ice sheet in addition to Climatology. His work deals with themes such as Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere, Carbon dioxide and Oceanography, Ice core, which intersect with Carbon cycle.

His Climate change research incorporates elements of Atmospheric sciences and Forcing. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Global warming, Atmospheric temperature is strongly linked to Global change. His studies deal with areas such as Runaway climate change, Greenhouse effect and Northern Hemisphere as well as Greenhouse gas.

His most cited work include:

  • The Physical Science Basis (3670 citations)
  • Changes in Atmospheric Constituents and in Radiative Forcing (3610 citations)
  • Anthropogenic ocean acidification over the twenty-first century and its impact on calcifying organisms (3173 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Carbon cycle, Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Climate change and Oceanography. His Carbon cycle study incorporates themes from Glacial period, Ocean current, Carbon sink and Holocene. His Climatology course of study focuses on Radiative forcing and Ice sheet.

His research in Atmospheric sciences intersects with topics in Biosphere, Hydrology, Meteorology, Greenhouse gas and Last Glacial Maximum. His research integrates issues of Forcing and Earth system science in his study of Climate change. His Global warming study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Ecosystem and Global change.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Carbon cycle (50.98%)
  • Climatology (48.77%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (42.65%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Atmospheric sciences (42.65%)
  • Carbon cycle (50.98%)
  • Greenhouse gas (23.77%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Atmospheric sciences, Carbon cycle, Greenhouse gas, Climate change and Climatology. His Atmospheric sciences research includes themes of Thermocline, Biosphere, Carbon sink and Methane. His Carbon cycle research includes elements of Glacial period, Last Glacial Maximum, Interglacial, Peat and Weathering.

His studies in Greenhouse gas integrate themes in fields like Global warming, Dynamic global vegetation model, Ecosystem and Spatial ecology. His Climate change study combines topics in areas such as Nitrous oxide and Earth system science. His Climatology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Carbon dioxide, Climate model and Before Present.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The global methane budget 2000–2017 (119 citations)
  • Towards real-time verification of CO2 emissions (83 citations)
  • Palaeoclimate constraints on the impact of 2 °C anthropogenic warming and beyond (75 citations)

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

  • Climate change
  • Ecology
  • Carbon dioxide

Fortunat Joos mainly focuses on Atmospheric sciences, Greenhouse gas, Climate change, Carbon cycle and Vegetation. His Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Atmospheric methane, Methane and Biosphere. His Greenhouse gas research includes themes of Global warming, Ecosystem and Radiative forcing.

His work investigates the relationship between Radiative forcing and topics such as Polar amplification that intersect with problems in Climatology. His Climate change research includes elements of Land cover, Nitrous oxide, Wetland and Ozone depletion. His research in Carbon cycle intersects with topics in Carbon dioxide, Terrestrial ecosystem, Carbon sink and Last Glacial Maximum.
