2002 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)


What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Climate change

Remote sensing, Atmospheric sciences, Primary production, Vegetation and Ecology are his primary areas of study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Land cover, Leaf area index, Photosynthetically active radiation and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer. Steven W. Running combines subjects such as Global warming, Carbon cycle, Carbon sink, Evapotranspiration and Terrestrial ecosystem with his study of Atmospheric sciences.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Meteorology, Data assimilation, Biosphere and Biome in addition to Primary production. His work carried out in the field of Vegetation brings together such families of science as Productivity, Climatology and Growing season. Within one scientific family, Steven W. Running focuses on topics pertaining to Carbon sequestration under Ecology, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Permafrost carbon cycle.

His most cited work include:

  • A global overview of drought and heat-induced tree mortality reveals emerging climate change risks for forests (4059 citations)
  • FLUXNET: A New Tool to Study the Temporal and Spatial Variability of Ecosystem-Scale Carbon Dioxide, Water Vapor, and Energy Flux Densities (2698 citations)
  • Climate-driven increases in global terrestrial net primary production from 1982 to 1999. (2368 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Remote sensing, Primary production, Vegetation, Ecosystem and Ecology. His work deals with themes such as Land cover, Evapotranspiration, Leaf area index and Photosynthetically active radiation, which intersect with Remote sensing. Steven W. Running has included themes like Biomass, Productivity, Atmospheric sciences, Carbon cycle and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer in his Primary production study.

His Vegetation research integrates issues from Meteorology, Phenology and Growing season. His Ecosystem study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Hydrology, Climate change and Biogeochemical cycle. The various areas that Steven W. Running examines in his Climate change study include Climatology and Physical geography.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Remote sensing (23.88%)
  • Primary production (24.41%)
  • Vegetation (22.31%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2021)?

  • Primary production (24.41%)
  • Climate change (17.59%)
  • Climatology (20.47%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Primary production, Climate change, Climatology, Remote sensing and Ecology. His Primary production research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Biosphere, Atmospheric sciences, Terrestrial ecosystem and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer. His Climate change research incorporates elements of Ecosystem, Physical geography, Environmental resource management and Water resources.

As a member of one scientific family, Steven W. Running mostly works in the field of Ecosystem, focusing on Agroforestry and, on occasion, Forest ecology. His Climatology research incorporates themes from Productivity, Earth system science, Vegetation and Precipitation. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Snow and Environmental protection.

Between 2009 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A global overview of drought and heat-induced tree mortality reveals emerging climate change risks for forests (4059 citations)
  • Drought-Induced Reduction in Global Terrestrial Net Primary Production from 2000 Through 2009 (1616 citations)
  • Improvements to a MODIS global terrestrial evapotranspiration algorithm (1353 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Climate change

His primary scientific interests are in Climate change, Climatology, Ecology, Ecosystem and Vegetation. His studies deal with areas such as Earth system science, Land use, land-use change and forestry and Environmental resource management as well as Climate change. His studies in Climatology integrate themes in fields like Productivity, Primary production, Energy balance and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer.

His work on Ecosystem services as part of his general Ecosystem study is frequently connected to Natural resource economics, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Vegetation, Water cycle, Eddy covariance, Remote sensing, Algorithm and Meteorology is strongly linked to Evapotranspiration. His study looks at the relationship between Sink and topics such as Atmospheric sciences, which overlap with Atmospheric carbon cycle, Global change, Vapour Pressure Deficit, Land cover and Arid.
