Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Climate change

Margaret S. Torn mostly deals with Soil water, Soil carbon, Soil organic matter, Ecosystem and Ecology. Margaret S. Torn has researched Soil water in several fields, including Global warming, Carbon cycle, Sink and Agronomy. Margaret S. Torn has included themes like Soil biology, Ultisol and Oxisol in her Soil carbon study.

Her Soil organic matter research integrates issues from Organic matter and Total organic carbon. Her Ecosystem study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Steppe and Environmental resource management. A large part of her Ecology studies is devoted to Climate change.

Her most cited work include:

  • Persistence of soil organic matter as an ecosystem property (2867 citations)
  • Persistence of soil organic matter as an ecosystem property (2867 citations)
  • Mineral control of soil organic carbon storage and turnover (1013 citations)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Atmospheric sciences, Soil water, Soil carbon, Ecosystem and Soil organic matter. The various areas that Margaret S. Torn examines in her Atmospheric sciences study include Climatology, Eddy covariance, Climate change, Hydrology and Carbon cycle. The study incorporates disciplines such as Environmental chemistry and Cycling in addition to Soil water.

The concepts of her Soil carbon study are interwoven with issues in Carbon sequestration, Radiocarbon dating, Soil chemistry and Soil respiration. Her work deals with themes such as Organic matter and Agronomy, which intersect with Soil organic matter. Her work in Agronomy addresses subjects such as Water content, which are connected to disciplines such as Precipitation.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Atmospheric sciences (31.50%)
  • Soil water (29.77%)
  • Soil carbon (26.30%)

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

  • Atmospheric sciences (31.50%)
  • Soil carbon (26.30%)
  • Soil water (29.77%)

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

Margaret S. Torn mainly investigates Atmospheric sciences, Soil carbon, Soil water, Environmental chemistry and Climate change. Margaret S. Torn interconnects Primary production, Eddy covariance, Ecosystem, Global change and Greenhouse gas in the investigation of issues within Atmospheric sciences. Her Soil carbon study combines topics in areas such as Radiocarbon dating, Soil microbiology and Soil horizon.

Soil science covers Margaret S. Torn research in Soil water. Her Climate change study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Soil organic matter and Carbon neutrality. Her Soil organic matter research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Temperate forest and Agronomy.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • The FLUXNET2015 dataset and the ONEFlux processing pipeline for eddy covariance data (67 citations)
  • The Millennial model: in search of measurable pools and transformations for modeling soil carbon in the new century (56 citations)
  • Landscape topography structures the soil microbiome in arctic polygonal tundra. (45 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Ecosystem

Her primary areas of study are Soil carbon, Atmospheric sciences, Soil water, Climate change and Ecosystem. Her Soil carbon study incorporates themes from Data management, Earth science, Arctic, Global change and Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere. While the research belongs to areas of Atmospheric sciences, she spends her time largely on the problem of Greenhouse gas, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Water vapor, Methane, Forcing and Radiative forcing.

Her Soil water research incorporates themes from Organic matter, Geospatial analysis, Relational database, Database and Cycling. Her study in Climate change is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Soil organic matter and Water cycle. Ecosystem is the subject of her research, which falls under Ecology.
