Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Law
  • Climate change
  • Statistics

Climate change, Natural resource economics, Environmental resource management, Greenhouse gas and Tourism are his primary areas of study. His Climate change study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Economic impact analysis, Economic geography, Per capita income, Welfare and Economy. His Natural resource economics research includes themes of Environmental engineering, Computable general equilibrium, Water resources, Climate policy and Per capita.

The concepts of his Environmental resource management study are interwoven with issues in Political economy of climate change, Climate model, Adaptive capacity and Damages. He has researched Greenhouse gas in several fields, including Cost–benefit analysis, Economic growth, Inequity aversion, Equity and Income distribution. His Tourism research focuses on Simulation modeling and how it connects with Population growth.

His most cited work include:

  • Climate change 2007 : impacts, adaptation and vulnerability : Working Group II contribution to the Fourth Assessment Report of the IPCC Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2621 citations)
  • Indicators for social and economic coping capacity—moving toward a working definition of adaptive capacity (931 citations)
  • The marginal damage costs of carbon dioxide emissions: An assessment of the uncertainties (805 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Climate change, Natural resource economics, Greenhouse gas, Econometrics and Economic impact analysis. His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Per capita income, Computable general equilibrium, Environmental resource management and Tourism. His research integrates issues of Economy, Economic geography and International economics in his study of Tourism.

His study looks at the intersection of Natural resource economics and topics like Water scarcity with Water use. His Greenhouse gas course of study focuses on Equity and Income distribution. His Econometrics research focuses on Social cost and how it connects with Public economics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climate change (73.63%)
  • Natural resource economics (44.04%)
  • Greenhouse gas (22.19%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Climate change (73.63%)
  • Natural resource economics (44.04%)
  • Economic impact analysis (18.97%)

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

Richard S.J. Tol spends much of his time researching Climate change, Natural resource economics, Economic impact analysis, Econometrics and Climate policy. His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Agriculture, Greenhouse gas, Environmental resource management and Social cost. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Social cost, Discounting is strongly linked to Public economics.

His Natural resource economics study combines topics in areas such as Global warming and Climate change mitigation. The various areas that Richard S.J. Tol examines in his Economic impact analysis study include Weather and climate, Per capita income, Sea level rise, Economy and Environmental economics. His research investigates the connection between Econometrics and topics such as Climate sensitivity that intersect with issues in Income elasticity of demand and Time preference.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Climate change 2007 : impacts, adaptation and vulnerability : Working Group II contribution to the Fourth Assessment Report of the IPCC Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2621 citations)
  • Coastal flood damage and adaptation costs under 21st century sea-level rise (518 citations)
  • Coastal flood damage and adaptation costs under 21st century sea-level rise (518 citations)

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

  • Law
  • Statistics
  • China

His main research concerns Climate change, Natural resource economics, Economic impact analysis, Agriculture and Environmental resource management. His studies in Climate change integrate themes in fields like Econometrics and Social cost. His study focuses on the intersection of Natural resource economics and fields such as Greenhouse gas with connections in the field of Global warming, Radioactive waste and Negative carbon dioxide emission.

His work carried out in the field of Economic impact analysis brings together such families of science as Public economics, Natural disaster, Environmental protection, Per capita income and Environmental economics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Poverty and Water resources. His Environmental resource management research includes elements of Coastal flood, Discounting, Flood myth and Erosion.
