Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • World War II

Johan Rockström mainly focuses on Sustainability, Environmental resource management, Natural resource economics, Planetary boundaries and Earth system science. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Environmental planning, Natural capital, Ecosystem services, Sustainable development and Environmental impact assessment. His research in Environmental resource management intersects with topics in Positive economics and Social theory.

His Natural resource economics research integrates issues from Agriculture, Food security, Food systems and Negotiation. His Planetary boundaries study contributes to a more complete understanding of Ecology. His studies deal with areas such as Anthropocene, Climate change, Millennium Development Goals and Transformational leadership as well as Earth system science.

His most cited work include:

  • A safe operating space for humanity (5983 citations)
  • A safe operating space for humanity (5983 citations)
  • Solutions for a cultivated planet (3839 citations)

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

Johan Rockström mainly investigates Agriculture, Water resources, Environmental resource management, Planetary boundaries and Natural resource economics. He interconnects Agroforestry, Food processing and Rainwater harvesting in the investigation of issues within Agriculture. As a part of the same scientific family, Johan Rockström mostly works in the field of Water resources, focusing on Water resource management and, on occasion, Farm water.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Earth science and Earth system science in addition to Planetary boundaries. His Earth system science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Climate change, Anthropocene, Sustainability and Biosphere. His Sustainability research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ecosystem services and Sustainable development.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Agriculture (24.76%)
  • Water resources (19.87%)
  • Environmental resource management (18.89%)

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

  • Climate change (20.20%)
  • Earth system science (19.87%)
  • Sustainable development (13.03%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Climate change, Earth system science, Sustainable development, Sustainability and Natural resource economics. The Earth system science study combines topics in areas such as Biosphere, Environmental resource management, Water cycle, Anthropocene and Planetary boundaries. Johan Rockström has researched Planetary boundaries in several fields, including Astrobiology, Spaceship Earth and Global change.

He has included themes like Agriculture, Food security, Food systems, Risk analysis and Digital Revolution in his Sustainable development study. His Sustainability study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Social capital and Public relations. His research investigates the connection between Natural resource economics and topics such as Food processing that intersect with problems in Animal source foods, Consumptive water use, Land use, Incentive and Stakeholder.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Food in the Anthropocene: the EAT–Lancet Commission on healthy diets from sustainable food systems (1551 citations)
  • Food in the Anthropocene: the EAT–Lancet Commission on healthy diets from sustainable food systems (1551 citations)
  • Climate tipping points — too risky to bet against (243 citations)

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

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Law

His primary areas of study are Natural resource economics, Climate change, Sustainable development, Planetary boundaries and Agriculture. Subsidy and Financial market is closely connected to Greenhouse gas in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Climate change. Johan Rockström interconnects Grand Challenges, Sustainable agriculture and Ecosystem in the investigation of issues within Sustainable development.

His Planetary boundaries study combines topics in areas such as Global change, Gaia hypothesis, Anthropocene and Earth system science. His Earth system science study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Corporate governance, Sustainability, Boundary and Environmental resource management. In his study, Per capita and Biosphere is inextricably linked to Food processing, which falls within the broad field of Agriculture.
