Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • Ecosystem
  • Carbon dioxide

James T. Randerson mostly deals with Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Carbon cycle, Climate change and Primary production. His research in Climatology is mostly concerned with Northern Hemisphere. His study in Atmospheric sciences is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Deforestation, La Niña, Carbon sink, Greenhouse gas and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer.

His research investigates the link between Carbon cycle and topics such as Biome that cross with problems in Spatial distribution. His work carried out in the field of Climate change brings together such families of science as Carbon sequestration and Soil carbon. His Primary production research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Tropics, Terrestrial ecosystem, Photosynthetically active radiation and Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere.

His most cited work include:

  • Primary Production of the Biosphere: Integrating Terrestrial and Oceanic Components (3389 citations)
  • Global fire emissions and the contribution of deforestation, savanna, forest, agricultural, and peat fires (1997-2009) (1861 citations)
  • Terrestrial ecosystem production: A process model based on global satellite and surface data (1852 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Climate change, Carbon cycle and Ecosystem. His study on Climatology also encompasses disciplines like

  • Greenhouse gas that connect with fields like Deforestation,
  • Boreal, which have a strong connection to Vegetation. James T. Randerson combines subjects such as Atmosphere, Meteorology, Atmospheric model and Taiga with his study of Atmospheric sciences.

A large part of his Climate change studies is devoted to Global warming. His Carbon cycle study also includes

  • Primary production and related Terrestrial ecosystem,
  • Carbon sink and related Sink. The Ecosystem study combines topics in areas such as Hydrology, Biomass and Soil water.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climatology (37.11%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (33.01%)
  • Climate change (16.63%)

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

  • Climatology (37.11%)
  • Climate change (16.63%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (33.01%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Climatology, Climate change, Atmospheric sciences, Precipitation and Global warming. His Climatology research incorporates elements of Boreal, Land use, land-use change and forestry, Climate model, Amazon rainforest and Intertropical Convergence Zone. His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Permafrost, Greenhouse gas and Environmental resource management.

As a part of the same scientific study, James T. Randerson usually deals with the Atmospheric sciences, concentrating on Global change and frequently concerns with Hydrology. His Precipitation research includes themes of Tropics, Physical geography and Stomatal conductance. His study explores the link between Carbon sink and topics such as Carbon cycle that cross with problems in Soil carbon.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global fire emissions estimates during 1997–2016 (446 citations)
  • A human-driven decline in global burned area (295 citations)
  • Iterative near-term ecological forecasting: Needs, opportunities, and challenges (181 citations)

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

  • Climate change
  • Ecosystem
  • Carbon dioxide

Climate change, Precipitation, Climatology, Atmospheric sciences and Ecosystem are his primary areas of study. The various areas that James T. Randerson examines in his Climate change study include Ecosystem management and Environmental resource management. His Precipitation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Amazon rainforest, Northern Hemisphere, Physical geography and Stomatal conductance.

He has included themes like Boreal, Geopotential height and Land use in his Climatology study. His studies in Atmospheric sciences integrate themes in fields like Soil carbon, Carbon cycle and Nitrogen cycle. James T. Randerson is interested in Primary production, which is a branch of Ecosystem.
