What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • Greenhouse gas
  • Global warming

Climate change, Environmental resource management, Greenhouse gas, Climate change mitigation and Global warming are his primary areas of study. His work carried out in the field of Climate change brings together such families of science as Carbon sequestration, Climatology and Adaptation. Keywan Riahi has included themes like Earth system science, Environmental economics, Baseline and Land use in his Environmental resource management study.

His Greenhouse gas research incorporates themes from Fossil fuel, Global temperature, Representative Concentration Pathways and Environmental protection. His Climate change mitigation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Food security and Land use, land-use change and forestry. Global warming and Natural resource economics are commonly linked in his work.

His most cited work include:

  • Climate Change 2007 Synthesis report (5147 citations)
  • The next generation of scenarios for climate change research and assessment (4001 citations)
  • The representative concentration pathways: an overview (3986 citations)

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

Keywan Riahi mostly deals with Greenhouse gas, Environmental resource management, Natural resource economics, Climate change and Environmental economics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Global warming, Fossil fuel, Baseline and Environmental protection. His research integrates issues of Global and Planetary Change, Sustainable development, Energy security, Risk analysis and Efficient energy use in his study of Environmental resource management.

While the research belongs to areas of Natural resource economics, he spends his time largely on the problem of Climate change mitigation, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Food security and Political economy of climate change. His Climate change research includes elements of Climatology, Adaptation and Land use. His Environmental economics study incorporates themes from Technological change, Energy supply, Software deployment and Energy intensity.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Greenhouse gas (38.63%)
  • Environmental resource management (36.49%)
  • Natural resource economics (36.97%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Sustainable development (23.46%)
  • Natural resource economics (36.97%)
  • Environmental economics (32.70%)

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

His main research concerns Sustainable development, Natural resource economics, Environmental economics, Greenhouse gas and Climate change. His Sustainable development research includes themes of Poverty, Downstream and Upstream. His Natural resource economics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Energy consumption, Climate change mitigation, Investment, Fossil fuel and Renewable energy.

His Environmental economics study also includes

  • Global warming, which have a strong connection to Land use,
  • Energy supply that connect with fields like Mass market. His research combines Climate model and Greenhouse gas. His work in Climate change addresses subjects such as Sustainability, which are connected to disciplines such as Carbon neutrality and Resilience.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Technical Summary: Global warming of 1.5°C. An IPCC Special Report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways, in the context of strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change, sustainable development, and efforts to eradicate poverty (444 citations)
  • Scenarios towards limiting global mean temperature increase below 1.5 °C (278 citations)
  • A low energy demand scenario for meeting the 1.5 °c target and sustainable development goals without negative emission technologies (246 citations)

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

  • Climate change
  • Greenhouse gas
  • Sustainability

His primary scientific interests are in Environmental economics, Sustainable development, Global warming, Climate change and Climate change mitigation. His work deals with themes such as Energy supply, Resource, Greenhouse gas and Renewable technologies, which intersect with Environmental economics. His work focuses on many connections between Resource and other disciplines, such as Climate model, that overlap with his field of interest in Radiative forcing.

Keywan Riahi combines subjects such as Forcing and Land use with his study of Global warming. The Climate change study combines topics in areas such as Habitat destruction, Scenario analysis, Natural resource economics, Public policy and Sustainability. The various areas that Keywan Riahi examines in his Climate change mitigation study include Water efficiency, Water conservation and Energy planning.
