Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Ecosystem, Soil water, Primary production and Hydrology. His study involves Soil carbon, Climate change, Terrestrial ecosystem, Biomass and Growing season, a branch of Ecology. His Soil carbon research incorporates themes from Soil organic matter, Environmental chemistry and Soil respiration.

The concepts of his Ecosystem study are interwoven with issues in Atmospheric sciences and Vegetation. The Soil water study combines topics in areas such as Watershed and Agronomy. Paul J. Hanson focuses mostly in the field of Hydrology, narrowing it down to topics relating to Transpiration and, in certain cases, Canopy, Evapotranspiration and Biosphere.

His most cited work include:

  • Climate Change and Forest Disturbances (1639 citations)
  • Separating root and soil microbial contributions to soil respiration: A review of methods and observations (1601 citations)
  • CO2 balance of boreal, temperate, and tropical forests derived from a global database (718 citations)

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

Paul J. Hanson focuses on Ecology, Ecosystem, Soil water, Peat and Atmospheric sciences. His research in Ecosystem intersects with topics in Biogeochemical cycle, Boreal, Climate change and Vegetation. The study incorporates disciplines such as Hydrology and Precipitation in addition to Soil water.

Paul J. Hanson works mostly in the field of Hydrology, limiting it down to concerns involving Transpiration and, occasionally, Canopy. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Eddy covariance and Water potential. Paul J. Hanson has included themes like Growing season and Plant litter in his Soil respiration study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (24.91%)
  • Ecosystem (23.02%)
  • Soil water (20.75%)

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

  • Peat (20.00%)
  • Ecosystem (23.02%)
  • Ecology (24.91%)

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

His main research concerns Peat, Ecosystem, Ecology, Atmospheric sciences and Bog. He combines subjects such as Shrub, Carbon cycle and Agronomy with his study of Peat. The various areas that Paul J. Hanson examines in his Ecosystem study include Photosynthesis, Carbon, Boreal and Phenology.

His Ecology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Hydrology and Data assimilation. His Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Primary production, Soil water, Soil respiration, Global warming and Methane. His Soil water research includes themes of Biogeochemical cycle and Altitude.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Ecosystem warming extends vegetation activity but heightens vulnerability to cold temperatures (113 citations)
  • Comparing ecosystem and soil respiration: Review and key challenges of tower-based and soil measurements (47 citations)
  • Fine-root growth in a forested bog is seasonally dynamic, but shallowly distributed in nutrient-poor peat (26 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

His scientific interests lie mostly in Peat, Ecosystem, Atmospheric sciences, Bog and Ecology. His studies deal with areas such as Environmental chemistry, Decomposition and Carbon as well as Peat. His research on Ecosystem frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Vegetation.

His study on Atmospheric sciences also encompasses disciplines like

  • Global warming together with Carbon dioxide, Soil carbon, Methane, Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere and Soil horizon,

  • Carbon cycle which intersects with area such as Physical geography and Spatial heterogeneity. His Bog study also includes

  • Boreal that intertwine with fields like Phenology, Soil respiration, Eddy covariance, Soil science and FluxNet,

  • Sphagnum together with Moss. He studies Taiga which is a part of Ecology.
