Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

His scientific interests lie mostly in Eddy covariance, Ecosystem, Atmospheric sciences, Ecology and Botany. His research in Eddy covariance intersects with topics in Sensible heat, Climatology, Hydrology, Carbon sequestration and Biome. As part of the same scientific family, Russell K. Monson usually focuses on Hydrology, concentrating on Ecosystem respiration and intersecting with Evapotranspiration.

The various areas that Russell K. Monson examines in his Ecosystem study include Biomass, Carbon dioxide and Seasonality. His Atmospheric sciences study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Snow, Meteorology and Carbon cycle. His work in the fields of Botany, such as Photosynthesis, overlaps with other areas such as Isoprene synthase and Phylogenetic Pattern.

His most cited work include:

  • Energy balance closure at FLUXNET sites (1621 citations)
  • Isoprene and monoterpene emission rate variability: Model evaluations and sensitivity analyses (1286 citations)
  • Environmental controls over carbon dioxide and water vapor exchange of terrestrial vegetation (947 citations)

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

Russell K. Monson mainly focuses on Atmospheric sciences, Botany, Ecology, Photosynthesis and Eddy covariance. His research in Atmospheric sciences focuses on subjects like Subalpine forest, which are connected to Evapotranspiration. His Botany research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Environmental chemistry, Carbon dioxide and Horticulture.

His Ecology research focuses on Ecosystem in particular. His Ecosystem study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Carbon sequestration and Soil water. His research investigates the connection with Eddy covariance and areas like Hydrology which intersect with concerns in Snow.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Atmospheric sciences (30.11%)
  • Botany (27.96%)
  • Ecology (23.12%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Atmospheric sciences (30.11%)
  • Eddy covariance (21.24%)
  • Dendrochronology (2.15%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Atmospheric sciences, Eddy covariance, Dendrochronology, Vapour Pressure Deficit and Photosynthesis. The Atmospheric sciences study combines topics in areas such as Leaf base, Partial least squares regression, Carbon cycle, Pinus contorta and Climate sensitivity. His work on FluxNet as part of general Eddy covariance study is frequently connected to Pipeline, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His Vapour Pressure Deficit study incorporates themes from δ13C, Precipitation, Ecosystem, Physical geography and Arid. His studies deal with areas such as Growing season, Seasonality, Phenology, Biomass and Monsoon as well as Photosynthesis. As a part of the same scientific family, Russell K. Monson mostly works in the field of Subalpine forest, focusing on Evapotranspiration and, on occasion, Latent heat and Sensible heat.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Greenness indices from digital cameras predict the timing and seasonal dynamics of canopy-scale photosynthesis. (97 citations)
  • The FLUXNET2015 dataset and the ONEFlux processing pipeline for eddy covariance data (67 citations)
  • Partitioning controls on Amazon forest photosynthesis between environmental and biotic factors at hourly to interannual timescales (55 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

Russell K. Monson focuses on Atmospheric sciences, Ecology, Eddy covariance, Isotopes of oxygen and Dendrochronology. His Atmospheric sciences research incorporates elements of Photosynthetic capacity, Primary production, Ecosystem, Carbon cycle and Vapour Pressure Deficit. The Carbon cycle study combines topics in areas such as Soil science and Ecosystem respiration.

His work on Climate sensitivity and Evergreen as part of general Ecology research is frequently linked to General interest and Serendipity, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His research in Evergreen tackles topics such as Deciduous which are related to areas like Photosynthesis. His Eddy covariance study combines topics in areas such as Sensible heat, Subalpine forest, Latent heat, Evapotranspiration and Remote sensing.
