Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Statistics

Sassan Saatchi mainly investigates Climate change, Remote sensing, Amazon rainforest, Deforestation and Ecosystem. His study on Climate change is covered under Ecology. His work carried out in the field of Remote sensing brings together such families of science as Spatial ecology, Species richness, Environmental niche modelling and Vegetation.

His Amazon rainforest research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Dry season, Forestry, Physical geography and Convective storm detection. His Deforestation study incorporates themes from Agroforestry, Storm, Tropics, Greenhouse gas and Squall. His Tropics research includes elements of Matching and Atmospheric sciences.

His most cited work include:

  • Benchmark map of forest carbon stocks in tropical regions across three continents. (1257 citations)
  • Distribution of Aboveground Live Biomass in the Amazon Basin (500 citations)
  • New global observations of the terrestrial carbon cycle from GOSAT: Patterns of plant fluorescence with gross primary productivity (492 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Remote sensing, Atmospheric sciences, Biomass, Ecology and Lidar. The various areas that Sassan Saatchi examines in his Remote sensing study include Biomass and Polarimetry. He combines subjects such as Canopy, Ecosystem, Carbon cycle, Evapotranspiration and Greenhouse gas with his study of Atmospheric sciences.

His Biomass study combines topics in areas such as Tropics, Forest inventory, Forestry, Vegetation and Physical geography. His Forestry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Hydrology and Amazon rainforest. His Climate change research focuses on Deforestation and how it connects with Agroforestry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Remote sensing (30.31%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (28.22%)
  • Biomass (23.69%)

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

  • Atmospheric sciences (28.22%)
  • Ecosystem (16.03%)
  • Climate change (21.95%)

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

His primary areas of study are Atmospheric sciences, Ecosystem, Climate change, Carbon cycle and Deforestation. Sassan Saatchi interconnects Biomass, Water balance, Divergence, Water vapor and Crown in the investigation of issues within Atmospheric sciences. His work deals with themes such as Vegetation, Surface water and Water content, which intersect with Ecosystem.

Sassan Saatchi has researched Climate change in several fields, including Carbon sequestration and Agroforestry. His Carbon cycle study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Carbon sink and Water cycle. His Deforestation study frequently links to other fields, such as Greenhouse gas.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Forest management in southern China generates short term extensive carbon sequestration (36 citations)
  • Mapping carbon accumulation potential from global natural forest regrowth (28 citations)
  • Tropical forests did not recover from the strong 2015–2016 El Niño event (24 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Ecosystem

His primary areas of investigation include Greenhouse gas, Atmospheric sciences, Deforestation, Climate change and Carbon sink. His work on Greenhouse gas is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Amazonian forest. His research integrates issues of Ecology, Ecosystem, Allometry, Basal area and Atmosphere in his study of Atmospheric sciences.

His Deforestation research incorporates themes from Biomass, Tropics, Forest fragmentation and Environmental protection. His Climate change research integrates issues from Carbon sequestration, Agroforestry and Amazon rainforest. His Carbon sink study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Climate change mitigation and Carbon cycle.
