Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Statistics

Martin Heimann spends much of his time researching Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Carbon cycle, Climate change and Biosphere. The study incorporates disciplines such as Seasonality, Precipitation and Advection in addition to Climatology. He interconnects Atmospheric chemistry, Meteorology and Methane, Atmospheric methane, Greenhouse gas in the investigation of issues within Atmospheric sciences.

His study in Carbon cycle is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere, Latitude, Carbon sink and Global change. Martin Heimann combines subjects such as Carbon dioxide and Biogeochemistry with his study of Climate change. The concepts of his Biosphere study are interwoven with issues in FluxNet, Remote sensing and Land use.

His most cited work include:

  • Three decades of global methane sources and sinks (1096 citations)
  • Recent patterns and mechanisms of carbon exchange by terrestrial ecosystems (1085 citations)
  • Terrestrial ecosystem carbon dynamics and climate feedbacks (977 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Atmospheric sciences, Climatology, Carbon cycle, Meteorology and Ecosystem. His Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Atmosphere, Carbon dioxide, Greenhouse gas and Methane. His research in Greenhouse gas intersects with topics in Carbon sequestration, Atmospheric carbon cycle and Environmental protection.

The various areas that Martin Heimann examines in his Climatology study include Seasonality, Precipitation, Biogeochemical cycle and Latitude. His Carbon cycle research incorporates themes from Biosphere, Climate change, Carbon sink, Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere and Terrestrial ecosystem. His Ecosystem research integrates issues from Permafrost, Soil water and Vegetation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Atmospheric sciences (45.81%)
  • Climatology (29.31%)
  • Carbon cycle (29.31%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Atmospheric sciences (45.81%)
  • Ecosystem (17.98%)
  • Carbon cycle (29.31%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Atmospheric sciences, Ecosystem, Carbon cycle, Climatology and Permafrost. He has included themes like Atmosphere, Eddy covariance, Methane, Carbon dioxide and Data assimilation in his Atmospheric sciences study. His Ecosystem study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Environmental protection, Climate change mitigation, Hydrology, Water balance and Global warming.

His research in Carbon cycle intersects with topics in Biosphere, Land use, land-use change and forestry, Climate change, Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere and Northern Hemisphere. His Climate change study incorporates themes from Latitude, Vegetation and Precipitation. The various areas that Martin Heimann examines in his Climatology study include Tower, Primary production, Observatory and Ecosystem model.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Carbon and Other Biogeochemical Cycles (892 citations)
  • Enhanced seasonal CO2 exchange caused by amplified plant productivity in northern ecosystems (192 citations)
  • A two-fold increase of carbon cycle sensitivity to tropical temperature variations (191 citations)

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

  • Climate change
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Statistics

Atmospheric sciences, Ecosystem, Carbon cycle, Climatology and Biogeochemical cycle are his primary areas of study. Martin Heimann works on Atmospheric sciences which deals in particular with Extratropical cyclone. His work deals with themes such as Permafrost and Latitude, which intersect with Ecosystem.

His study in Carbon cycle is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Biosphere and Climate change, Carbon dioxide, Carbon sink, Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere. His Climatology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Primary production, Climate model, Ecosystem model and Terrestrial ecosystem. His research investigates the connection between Biogeochemical cycle and topics such as Atmospheric chemistry that intersect with issues in Water cycle and Oceanography.
