What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • Ecology
  • Carbon dioxide

Pierre Friedlingstein spends much of his time researching Climate change, Carbon cycle, Atmospheric sciences, Carbon dioxide and Climatology. In the field of Climate change, his study on Global warming overlaps with subjects such as Physical science and Engineering ethics. Pierre Friedlingstein has researched Carbon cycle in several fields, including Biosphere, Vegetation and Terrestrial ecosystem.

In general Atmospheric sciences study, his work on Atmospheric circulation often relates to the realm of Latitude, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His research in Carbon dioxide intersects with topics in Radiative forcing, Carbon sink and Biogeochemistry. His Climatology research incorporates elements of Climate model, Coupled model intercomparison project, Biogeochemical cycle, Land cover and Earth system science.

His most cited work include:

  • Climate Change 2013: The Physical Science Basis (6478 citations)
  • Global climate projections (3400 citations)
  • Europe-wide reduction in primary productivity caused by the heat and drought in 2003 (2547 citations)

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

Pierre Friedlingstein mostly deals with Carbon cycle, Atmospheric sciences, Climate change, Climatology and Global warming. His Carbon cycle research includes elements of Biosphere, Primary production, Terrestrial ecosystem, Carbon sink and Carbon dioxide. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Atmosphere, Sink, Ecosystem, Vegetation and Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere.

The various areas that Pierre Friedlingstein examines in his Climate change study include Meteorology and Greenhouse gas. His Greenhouse gas research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Global temperature and Natural resource economics. His research integrates issues of Land use, land-use change and forestry, Climate model, Coupled model intercomparison project, Biogeochemical cycle and Earth system science in his study of Climatology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Carbon cycle (43.82%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (40.73%)
  • Climate change (39.33%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Atmospheric sciences (40.73%)
  • Carbon cycle (43.82%)
  • Vegetation (16.29%)

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

Pierre Friedlingstein focuses on Atmospheric sciences, Carbon cycle, Vegetation, Ecosystem and Global warming. The study incorporates disciplines such as Biosphere, Precipitation, Nitrogen cycle and Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere, Carbon dioxide in addition to Atmospheric sciences. His study in Carbon cycle is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Atmosphere, Land use, land-use change and forestry and Earth system science.

His work deals with themes such as Greening, Climate change, Nutrient and Water content, which intersect with Ecosystem. Pierre Friedlingstein interconnects Physical geography and Growing season in the investigation of issues within Climate change. His research investigates the link between Global warming and topics such as Soil carbon that cross with problems in Litter.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Temporary reduction in daily global CO2 emissions during the COVID-19 forced confinement (441 citations)
  • Temporary reduction in daily global CO2 emissions during the COVID-19 forced confinement (441 citations)
  • Global Carbon Budget 2019 (405 citations)

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

  • Climate change
  • Ecology
  • Global warming

Pierre Friedlingstein mainly focuses on Atmospheric sciences, Carbon dioxide, Carbon cycle, Global warming and Fossil fuel. His studies deal with areas such as Sink, Ecosystem, Vegetation, Plant functional type and Convective Boundary Layer as well as Atmospheric sciences. His Carbon dioxide study deals with Biosphere intersecting with Greenhouse gas, Atmosphere, Land use, land-use change and forestry and Land use.

His research in Carbon cycle intersects with topics in Nitrogen cycle and Coupled model intercomparison project. His work deals with themes such as Carbon capture and storage, Natural gas prices, Natural gas and Agricultural economics, which intersect with Global warming. In Terrestrial ecosystem, he works on issues like Ozone, which are connected to Climate change.
