Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecosystem
  • Climate change
  • Remote sensing

Sander Veraverbeke focuses on Vegetation, Remote sensing, Satellite imagery, Climatology and Normalized Difference Vegetation Index. Sander Veraverbeke studies Vegetation, focusing on Fire regime in particular. While the research belongs to areas of Fire regime, he spends his time largely on the problem of Boreal, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Taiga.

His work carried out in the field of Remote sensing brings together such families of science as Calluna and Woodland. Sander Veraverbeke has included themes like Thematic Mapper and Standard deviation in his Satellite imagery study. His Climatology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Global warming, Carbon dioxide, Arctic and Ecosystem.

His most cited work include:

  • Lightning as a major driver of recent large fire years in North American boreal forests (120 citations)
  • Lightning as a major driver of recent large fire years in North American boreal forests (120 citations)
  • The temporal dimension of differenced Normalized Burn Ratio (dNBR) fire/burn severity studies: the case of the large 2007 Peloponnese wildfires in Greece. (87 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Remote sensing, Vegetation, Boreal, Taiga and Climatology. His research brings together the fields of Normalized burn ratio and Remote sensing. His Vegetation study incorporates themes from Linear regression, Physical geography, Earth system science and Scale.

The Boreal study combines topics in areas such as Climate change, Atmospheric sciences, Meteorology, Greenhouse gas and Fire regime. His Taiga research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Lightning and Albedo. His research on Climatology also deals with topics like

  • Arctic that intertwine with fields like Ecosystem,
  • Fire ecology which intersects with area such as Biome and Forest ecology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Remote sensing (53.92%)
  • Vegetation (34.31%)
  • Boreal (27.45%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Taiga (18.63%)
  • Boreal (27.45%)
  • Greenhouse gas (16.67%)

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

Sander Veraverbeke mainly investigates Taiga, Boreal, Greenhouse gas, Forestry and Climate change. Sander Veraverbeke has researched Taiga in several fields, including Global warming and Physical geography. His work deals with themes such as Soil water, Logging, Vegetation, Carbon sink and Ecozone, which intersect with Physical geography.

His study in Boreal is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Lightning and Atmospheric sciences. His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Climatology and Forcing. His Boreal zone research extends to Climatology, which is thematically connected.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Wildfire combustion and carbon stocks in the southern Canadian boreal forest: Implications for a warming world (6 citations)
  • Fuel availability not fire weather controls boreal wildfire severity and carbon emissions (5 citations)
  • Mapping species at an individual-tree scale in a temperate forest, using sentinel-2 images, airborne laser scanning data, and random forest classification (3 citations)

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

  • Climate change
  • Ecosystem
  • Remote sensing

Sander Veraverbeke spends much of his time researching Taiga, Boreal, Climate change, Global warming and Atmospheric sciences. His Taiga research incorporates themes from Lightning, Arctic and Greenhouse gas. Sander Veraverbeke interconnects Ecozone, Vegetation, Logging and Carbon sink in the investigation of issues within Greenhouse gas.

The various areas that Sander Veraverbeke examines in his Climate change study include Permafrost, Climatology, Tundra and Physical geography. His Physical geography research incorporates elements of Ecosystem and Black spruce. His Global warming study combines topics in areas such as Fire weather, Fire regime, Edaphic, Ecoregion and Tree species.
