Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Statistics

His main research concerns Climatology, Dendrochronology, Climate change, Dendroclimatology and Northern Hemisphere. His Climatology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Trend surface analysis, Climate model and Paleoclimatology. His studies in Paleoclimatology integrate themes in fields like Quaternary and Holocene.

His Dendrochronology study deals with Juniper intersecting with Series, Circumpolar star and Pinus . The study incorporates disciplines such as Solar irradiance, Period, Carbon cycle and Physical geography in addition to Climate change. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Larch, Trend function and Pseudoproxy.

His most cited work include:

  • Low-Frequency Signals in Long Tree-Ring Chronologies for Reconstructing Past Temperature Variability (1168 citations)
  • 2500 Years of European Climate Variability and Human Susceptibility (816 citations)
  • Persistent Positive North Atlantic Oscillation Mode Dominated the Medieval Climate Anomaly (755 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Climatology, Dendrochronology, Physical geography, Ecology and Climate change. His research in Climatology intersects with topics in Mediterranean climate, Dendroclimatology and Paleoclimatology. His Paleoclimatology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Volcano and Climate model.

His Dendrochronology research integrates issues from Period, Atmospheric sciences, Peninsula, Precipitation and Chronology. His work in Physical geography covers topics such as Holocene which are related to areas like Glacial period, Radiocarbon dating and Quaternary. His Climate sensitivity study in the realm of Climate change connects with subjects such as Context.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climatology (43.17%)
  • Dendrochronology (36.16%)
  • Physical geography (24.72%)

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

  • Climatology (43.17%)
  • Physical geography (24.72%)
  • Dendrochronology (36.16%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Climatology, Physical geography, Dendrochronology, Precipitation and Ecology. Particularly relevant to Northern Hemisphere is his body of work in Climatology. His Northern Hemisphere research includes elements of Multi proxy, Proxy and Paleoclimatology.

The concepts of his Physical geography study are interwoven with issues in Larch, Anomaly, Quercus spp and Climate sensitivity. His research integrates issues of Period, Latitude, Climate change, Atmospheric sciences and Subfossil in his study of Dendrochronology. Jan Esper focuses mostly in the field of Ecology, narrowing it down to topics relating to Tree and, in certain cases, Greenhouse effect, Ecology, Drought stress and Pinus .

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Limited capacity of tree growth to mitigate the global greenhouse effect under predicted warming. (38 citations)
  • Scientific merits and analytical challenges of tree-ring densitometry (27 citations)
  • European warm-season temperature and hydroclimate since 850 CE (23 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Statistics

Jan Esper focuses on Climatology, Dendrochronology, Physical geography, Climate change and Ecology. His Climatology research incorporates themes from Mediterranean climate and Climate model. His research in Dendrochronology tackles topics such as Period which are related to areas like Glacial period, Radiocarbon dating, Younger Dryas, Environmental change and Holocene.

His Physical geography study combines topics in areas such as Paleoclimatology, Temperate rainforest, Precipitation, Global warming and Absolute dating. Jan Esper has included themes like Trophic level, North Atlantic oscillation, Larch and Population cycle in his Climate change study. His work is dedicated to discovering how Proxy, Divergence problem are connected with Dendroclimatology and other disciplines.
