Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Agriculture

Greenhouse gas, Climate change, Land use, Food security and Agriculture are his primary areas of study. His Greenhouse gas study incorporates themes from Land use, land-use change and forestry, Environmental protection, Environmental resource management, Carbon sequestration and Natural resource economics. He has included themes like Baseline and Sustainable development in his Environmental resource management study.

Michael Obersteiner mostly deals with Carbon price in his studies of Climate change. His study explores the link between Land use and topics such as Deforestation that cross with problems in Ecosystem services. His Agriculture research incorporates themes from Productivity, Soil carbon, Biomass and Agricultural economics.

His most cited work include:

  • The Shared Socioeconomic Pathways and their energy, land use, and greenhouse gas emissions implications: An overview (927 citations)
  • Human-induced nitrogen–phosphorus imbalances alter natural and managed ecosystems across the globe (568 citations)
  • Biophysical and economic limits to negative CO2 emissions (550 citations)

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

Michael Obersteiner spends much of his time researching Natural resource economics, Environmental resource management, Climate change, Greenhouse gas and Agriculture. His study in Natural resource economics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Climate change mitigation, Deforestation, Sustainability and Carbon price. His Environmental resource management research includes themes of Biodiversity, Environmental economics, Land use and Environmental planning.

His research combines Environmental protection and Climate change. His Greenhouse gas research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Carbon sequestration, Bioenergy, Global warming and Land use, land-use change and forestry. His work in Agriculture is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Agricultural economics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Natural resource economics (19.27%)
  • Environmental resource management (17.53%)
  • Climate change (17.53%)

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

  • Agriculture (16.49%)
  • Climate change (17.53%)
  • Biodiversity (6.42%)

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

Michael Obersteiner mostly deals with Agriculture, Climate change, Biodiversity, Natural resource economics and Sustainable development. His Agriculture study combines topics in areas such as Food processing, Sustainability and Yield. His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Soil carbon, Greenhouse gas and Environmental protection.

His studies in Biodiversity integrate themes in fields like Land use, Environmental planning, Ecosystem services, Environmental resource management and Biome. His research in Land use is mostly concerned with Land cover. His work deals with themes such as Climate change mitigation, Consumption, Agricultural land and Natural resource, which intersect with Natural resource economics.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Citizen science and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (99 citations)
  • Contribution of the land sector to a 1.5 °C world (66 citations)
  • How to spend a dwindling greenhouse gas budget (65 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Agriculture

Michael Obersteiner mainly investigates Biodiversity, Agriculture, Natural resource economics, Climate change and Greenhouse gas. His Agriculture research integrates issues from Productivity, Land use and Sustainable development. His biological study deals with issues like Food processing, which deal with fields such as Agricultural land.

His Natural resource economics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Climate change mitigation and Sustainability. His study in the field of Global warming is also linked to topics like Nutritional status. His work in Greenhouse gas covers topics such as Agroforestry which are related to areas like Carbon sequestration, Fertilizer, Biodiversity hotspot and Crop yield.
