Awards & Achievements

2013 - Max Planck Research Award Research into the influence of climate change on ecosystems


What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Ecosystem

Markus Reichstein mostly deals with Atmospheric sciences, Ecosystem, FluxNet, Ecology and Eddy covariance. In his work, Field capacity and Water content is strongly intertwined with Respiration, which is a subfield of Atmospheric sciences. The Ecosystem study combines topics in areas such as Climate change and Water-use efficiency.

His FluxNet research includes elements of Primary production, Meteorology, Evapotranspiration and Remote sensing. He has included themes like Biosphere, Biosphere model and Temporal scales in his Eddy covariance study. The concepts of his Ecosystem respiration study are interwoven with issues in Productivity and Soil water.

His most cited work include:

  • Europe-wide reduction in primary productivity caused by the heat and drought in 2003 (2547 citations)
  • On the Separation of Net Ecosystem Exchange into Assimilation and Ecosystem Respiration: Review and Improved Algorithm (2050 citations)
  • TRY - a global database of plant traits (1611 citations)

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

His main research concerns Atmospheric sciences, Ecosystem, Eddy covariance, Ecology and Climatology. His studies examine the connections between Atmospheric sciences and genetics, as well as such issues in Hydrology, with regards to Soil respiration. His Ecosystem research includes themes of Productivity, Mediterranean climate and Climate change.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Primary production, Evapotranspiration and Latent heat. His Climatology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Climate model and Precipitation. Markus Reichstein has researched FluxNet in several fields, including Remote sensing and Water cycle.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Atmospheric sciences (32.64%)
  • Ecosystem (27.32%)
  • Eddy covariance (21.82%)

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

  • Atmospheric sciences (32.64%)
  • Ecosystem (27.32%)
  • Eddy covariance (21.82%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Atmospheric sciences, Ecosystem, Eddy covariance, Vegetation and Biosphere. His work carried out in the field of Atmospheric sciences brings together such families of science as Atmosphere, Evapotranspiration, Water content, Terrestrial ecosystem and Transpiration. His Terrestrial ecosystem study combines topics in areas such as Climate change and Water cycle.

His Ecosystem research is under the purview of Ecology. His study of FluxNet is a part of Eddy covariance. His studies in Vegetation integrate themes in fields like Land cover, Biodiversity, Remote sensing and Scale.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Deep learning and process understanding for data-driven Earth system science (556 citations)
  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • Basic and extensible post-processing of eddy covariance flux data with REddyProc (166 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Ecosystem

His primary areas of study are Atmospheric sciences, Ecosystem, Eddy covariance, Vegetation and FluxNet. His research integrates issues of Water content, Evapotranspiration, Scale, Terrestrial ecosystem and Transpiration in his study of Atmospheric sciences. Markus Reichstein is interested in Carbon cycle, which is a field of Ecosystem.

His research investigates the connection between Carbon cycle and topics such as Ecosystem respiration that intersect with issues in Daytime, Respiration and Soil respiration. His research in Eddy covariance intersects with topics in Latent heat and Spatial variability. His Vegetation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Productivity and Biodiversity.
