Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • Agriculture
  • Statistics

Joseph Alcamo mainly investigates Environmental resource management, Climate change, Global change, Water use and Natural resource economics. His Environmental resource management research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Scenario analysis, Ecosystem and Air pollution. Joseph Alcamo interconnects Biodiversity, Discharge and Environmental planning in the investigation of issues within Climate change.

Joseph Alcamo works mostly in the field of Water use, limiting it down to topics relating to Water resources and, in certain cases, Water resource management and Surface runoff, as a part of the same area of interest. His Water resource management research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Socioeconomic development, Wastewater, Millennium Development Goals and Hydrology. His Natural resource economics research focuses on Hydrology and how it connects with Developing country, Current and Uncertainty analysis.

His most cited work include:

  • Summary for policymakers (8355 citations)
  • Special report on emissions scenarios (2870 citations)
  • Climate change 2007 : impacts, adaptation and vulnerability : Working Group II contribution to the Fourth Assessment Report of the IPCC Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2621 citations)

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

Joseph Alcamo spends much of his time researching Climate change, Environmental resource management, Global change, Environmental protection and Greenhouse gas. The various areas that he examines in his Climate change study include Air pollution, Climatology, Natural resource economics and Ecosystem. His research investigates the connection between Environmental resource management and topics such as Environmental planning that intersect with problems in Integrated water resources management.

His research integrates issues of Land cover, Water use and Water resources in his study of Global change. His Water use research integrates issues from Drainage basin, Surface runoff and Water resource management. His Greenhouse gas research incorporates elements of Atmosphere and Atmospheric sciences.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climate change (27.75%)
  • Environmental resource management (23.12%)
  • Global change (13.29%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

  • Environmental resource management (23.12%)
  • Water quality (8.67%)
  • Climate change (27.75%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Environmental resource management, Water quality, Climate change, Environmental planning and Natural resource economics. His study looks at the intersection of Environmental resource management and topics like Land use, land-use change and forestry with Agricultural productivity. His study in Water quality is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Developing country, Water pollution, Pollution and Water resource management.

Climate change is frequently linked to Climatology in his study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Integrated water resources management, Water resources, Biodiversity and Sustainable development in addition to Environmental planning. His Natural resource economics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Convention on Biological Diversity, Water use, Commerce and Harmony with nature.

Between 2010 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Climate change 2007 : impacts, adaptation and vulnerability : Working Group II contribution to the Fourth Assessment Report of the IPCC Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2621 citations)
  • Domestic and industrial water uses of the past 60 years as a mirror of socio-economic development: A global simulation study (272 citations)
  • Water scarcity assessments in the past, present, and future (178 citations)

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

  • Climate change
  • Agriculture
  • Statistics

His main research concerns Environmental resource management, Climate change, Land use, Water quality and Water pollution. The Environmental resource management study combines topics in areas such as Natural resource economics, Integrated water resources management and Environmental planning. His Economy research extends to Climate change, which is thematically connected.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Agroforestry and Deforestation. His Water pollution research includes themes of Total dissolved solids and Hydrology. His studies deal with areas such as Technological change, Water resources, Water resource management, Wastewater and Water supply as well as Water use.
