Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Climate change

His main research concerns Ecosystem, Ecology, Tundra, Eddy covariance and Atmospheric sciences. His Tundra study is focused on Arctic in general. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Permafrost, Climatology and Climate change.

His Eddy covariance study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Enhanced vegetation index, Primary production, Biome, Terrestrial ecosystem and Remote sensing. His Atmospheric sciences study combines topics in areas such as Hydrology, Meteorology, Carbon cycle and Growing season. Walter C. Oechel interconnects Ecosystem respiration and FluxNet in the investigation of issues within Hydrology.

His most cited work include:

  • FLUXNET: A New Tool to Study the Temporal and Spatial Variability of Ecosystem-Scale Carbon Dioxide, Water Vapor, and Energy Flux Densities (2698 citations)
  • OBSERVATIONAL EVIDENCE OF RECENT CHANGE IN THE NORTHERN HIGH-LATITUDE ENVIRONMENT (1719 citations)
  • Energy balance closure at FLUXNET sites (1621 citations)

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

Walter C. Oechel focuses on Tundra, Ecosystem, Eddy covariance, Atmospheric sciences and Ecology. His research in Tundra intersects with topics in Climatology, Vegetation and Growing season. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Soil water, Climate change, Carbon dioxide and Sink.

His work deals with themes such as Hydrology, Evapotranspiration, Primary production and Remote sensing, which intersect with Eddy covariance. His Atmospheric sciences study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Ecosystem respiration, Carbon cycle, Methane and Spatial variability. The Arctic study combines topics in areas such as Global warming, Permafrost, Physical geography and Greenhouse gas.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Tundra (45.11%)
  • Ecosystem (38.22%)
  • Eddy covariance (36.21%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Atmospheric sciences (34.77%)
  • Ecosystem (38.22%)
  • Tundra (45.11%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Atmospheric sciences, Ecosystem, Tundra, Eddy covariance and Arctic. His study in Atmospheric sciences is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Boreal, Spatial variability, Terrestrial ecosystem, Remote sensing and Wetland. In general Ecosystem study, his work on Ecosystem respiration and FluxNet often relates to the realm of Sensitivity, thereby connecting several areas of interest.

His Tundra research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Methane emissions, Enhanced vegetation index, Snow, Physical geography and Vegetation. His Eddy covariance research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biosphere, Downscaling and Methane. Walter C. Oechel interconnects Climatology, Spatial heterogeneity, Carbon dioxide and Growing season in the investigation of issues within Arctic.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • CO2 exchange and evapotranspiration across dryland ecosystems of southwestern North America. (73 citations)
  • The FLUXNET2015 dataset and the ONEFlux processing pipeline for eddy covariance data (67 citations)
  • Large loss of CO2 in winter observed across the northern permafrost region (62 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Climate change

His primary areas of investigation include Ecosystem, Atmospheric sciences, Eddy covariance, Arctic and Climatology. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Permafrost and Spatial heterogeneity. His research in Atmospheric sciences intersects with topics in Boreal, Inversion, Climate change, Spatial variability and Wetland methane emissions.

His study in Eddy covariance focuses on Ecosystem respiration in particular. He is interested in Tundra, which is a field of Arctic. His research investigates the link between Tundra and topics such as Carbon cycle that cross with problems in Enhanced vegetation index, Arctic vegetation, Chlorophyll fluorescence, Chlorophyll and Photosynthesis.
