Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Ecosystem

Sandy P. Harrison spends much of his time researching Climatology, Climate change, Last Glacial Maximum, Vegetation and Glacial period. Sandy P. Harrison combines subjects such as Climate model, Paleoclimatology, Paleoclimate Modelling Intercomparison Project and Holocene with his study of Climatology. His Climate change study incorporates themes from Biogeochemical cycle, Environmental resource management and Carbon cycle, Fire regime, Ecosystem.

His research in Last Glacial Maximum intersects with topics in Tundra, Temperate climate, Precipitation, Physical geography and Ice sheet. His work deals with themes such as Trait, Species richness, Functional ecology and Biome, which intersect with Vegetation. His studies examine the connections between Glacial period and genetics, as well as such issues in Ecology, with regards to Database and Biological dispersal.

His most cited work include:

  • A global biome model based on plant physiology and dominance, soil properties and climate (1723 citations)
  • Fire in the Earth System (1654 citations)
  • TRY - a global database of plant traits (1611 citations)

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

Sandy P. Harrison focuses on Climatology, Climate change, Vegetation, Physical geography and Atmospheric sciences. His work carried out in the field of Climatology brings together such families of science as Paleoclimatology, Climate model, Last Glacial Maximum, Holocene and Precipitation. The Precipitation study combines topics in areas such as Arid, Monsoon and Evapotranspiration.

His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biosphere and Biogeochemical cycle. His studies deal with areas such as Meteorology and Ecosystem, Biome as well as Vegetation. His Atmospheric sciences study which covers Carbon cycle that intersects with Dynamic global vegetation model.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climatology (59.57%)
  • Climate change (39.23%)
  • Vegetation (28.95%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Physical geography (24.40%)
  • Climate change (39.23%)
  • Climatology (59.57%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Physical geography, Climate change, Climatology, Atmospheric sciences and Vegetation. His Physical geography research includes themes of Land cover, China, Pollen and Holocene. He is interested in Climate model, which is a field of Climate change.

His Climatology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Data assimilation, Last Glacial Maximum, Precipitation and Coupled model intercomparison project. The concepts of his Atmospheric sciences study are interwoven with issues in Biomass, Primary production, Vapour Pressure Deficit, Carbon cycle and Greenhouse gas. His Vegetation research includes elements of Spatial ecology, Population density, Ecosystem and Seasonality.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • The PMIP4 contribution to CMIP6 – Part 1: Overview and over-arching analysis plan (70 citations)
  • Global energetics and local physics as drivers of past, present and future monsoons (42 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Ecosystem

His main research concerns Climate change, Physical geography, Vegetation, Climatology and Biome. Sandy P. Harrison is involved in the study of Climate change that focuses on Climate model in particular. Sandy P. Harrison works mostly in the field of Climate model, limiting it down to topics relating to Paleoclimatology and, in certain cases, Water cycle, Northern Hemisphere, Last Glacial Maximum and Interglacial.

His Physical geography research incorporates elements of Land cover and Population density. The study incorporates disciplines such as Land use, Atmospheric sciences, Frost, Ecosystem and Evergreen in addition to Vegetation. His Atmospheric circulation study in the realm of Climatology connects with subjects such as Energy flow.
