Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Ecosystem

Joshua B. Fisher spends much of his time researching Evapotranspiration, Atmospheric sciences, Vegetation, Ecosystem and Meteorology. His Evapotranspiration study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Latent heat, Eddy covariance, FluxNet and Remote sensing. His Atmospheric sciences study deals with Water cycle intersecting with Interception, Surface water, Evaporation and Spatial variability.

His Vegetation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Benchmarking and Forcing. The Ecosystem study combines topics in areas such as Woody plant, Botany and Agronomy. His work deals with themes such as Primary production and Climate change, which intersect with Meteorology.

His most cited work include:

  • Drought sensitivity of the Amazon rainforest. (1175 citations)
  • Mapping forest canopy height globally with spaceborne lidar (593 citations)
  • Global estimates of the land–atmosphere water flux based on monthly AVHRR and ISLSCP-II data, validated at 16 FLUXNET sites (500 citations)

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

Joshua B. Fisher mainly focuses on Evapotranspiration, Atmospheric sciences, Remote sensing, Ecosystem and Climatology. His study looks at the intersection of Evapotranspiration and topics like Eddy covariance with Latent heat. His studies in Atmospheric sciences integrate themes in fields like Primary production, Carbon cycle, Vegetation, Carbon sink and Transpiration.

His Remote sensing study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Water content and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer. His Ecosystem study incorporates themes from Biomass, Canopy and Nutrient. His study brings together the fields of Climate change and Climatology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Evapotranspiration (25.15%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (24.24%)
  • Remote sensing (21.21%)

  • Atmospheric sciences (24.24%)
  • Ecosystem (20.61%)
  • Evapotranspiration (25.15%)

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

His primary areas of study are Atmospheric sciences, Ecosystem, Evapotranspiration, Agronomy and Primary production. His Atmospheric sciences research integrates issues from Carbon cycle, Arctic, Water content and Water cycle. The study incorporates disciplines such as Biomass and Canopy in addition to Ecosystem.

His Evapotranspiration research includes elements of Eddy covariance, Hydrology, Remote sensing and Meteorology. He has included themes like Biomass, Soil carbon and Nutrient in his Agronomy study. Physical geography is closely connected to Precipitation in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Primary production.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Community Land Model Version 5: Description of New Features, Benchmarking, and Impact of Forcing Uncertainty (144 citations)
  • The Community Land Model Version 5: Description of New Features, Benchmarking, and Impact of Forcing Uncertainty (144 citations)
  • Nitrogen and phosphorus constrain the CO2 fertilization of global plant biomass (62 citations)
