Peter E. Thornton focuses on Atmospheric sciences, Carbon cycle, Ecology, Primary production and Climatology. His Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Atmospheric chemistry, Community Climate System Model, Deposition and Biogeochemistry. His research in Carbon cycle intersects with topics in Climate model, Global warming, Nitrogen cycle, Carbon sink and Carbon dioxide.
His work on Ecosystem, Terrestrial ecosystem, Biome and Vegetation as part of general Ecology study is frequently linked to Latitude, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. Peter E. Thornton has included themes like Carbon sequestration and Soil carbon in his Ecosystem study. He has included themes like Climate change and Precipitation in his Climatology study.
Atmospheric sciences, Climatology, Ecosystem, Carbon cycle and Ecology are his primary areas of study. The Atmospheric sciences study which covers Primary production that intersects with Eddy covariance. His Climatology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Biosphere, Land use, Climate change, Climate model and Precipitation.
His work in Ecosystem covers topics such as Vegetation which are related to areas like Hydrology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Biogeochemical cycle, Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere, Carbon dioxide and Nitrogen cycle. Soil carbon and Biome are the core of his Ecology study.
His main research concerns Atmospheric sciences, Ecosystem, Biogeosciences, Earth system science and Climatology. His work deals with themes such as Primary production, Radiative forcing and Temperate climate, which intersect with Atmospheric sciences. His research in Ecosystem intersects with topics in Biomass and Vegetation.
His Earth system science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Environmental resource management, Climate model and Land use. His study in Climatology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Scale, Predictability, Climate change, Leaf area index and Precipitation. His work on Atmospheric carbon cycle as part of general Carbon cycle study is frequently connected to Context, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Atmospheric sciences, Ecosystem, Earth system science, Carbon cycle and Biomass. Peter E. Thornton interconnects Primary production, Global warming, Climate change, Carbon sink and Forest dynamics in the investigation of issues within Atmospheric sciences. His studies in Ecosystem integrate themes in fields like Climatology and Climate model.
His study brings together the fields of Vegetation and Climatology. His Carbon cycle research incorporates elements of Earth system model and Greenhouse gas. His Biomass research includes themes of Soil carbon, Soil water and Cycling.
