Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Paleontology

Achim Brauer mainly focuses on Varve, Climatology, Glacial period, Holocene and Sediment. His Varve study incorporates themes from Younger Dryas, Sedimentary depositional environment and Maar. His study in the fields of Westerlies under the domain of Climatology overlaps with other disciplines such as Abrupt climate change.

His work is dedicated to discovering how Glacial period, Sea surface temperature are connected with Ice age, Flooding and La Niña and other disciplines. His research in Holocene intersects with topics in Atmospheric circulation, Flood myth, Erosion and Climate model. Achim Brauer works mostly in the field of Physical geography, limiting it down to topics relating to Climate change and, in certain cases, Period.

His most cited work include:

  • Rapid environmental changes in southern Europe during the last glacial period (549 citations)
  • A mid-european decadal isotope-climate record from 15,500 to 5000 years B.P (527 citations)
  • A Network of Terrestrial Environmental Observatories in Germany (308 citations)

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

Achim Brauer spends much of his time researching Varve, Physical geography, Holocene, Sediment and Paleontology. Achim Brauer combines subjects such as Climatology, Climate change, Interglacial, Maar and Chronology with his study of Varve. His studies in Physical geography integrate themes in fields like Younger Dryas, Vegetation, Ice core and Paleoclimatology.

His Holocene research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Glacial period and Period. He studies Stadial, a branch of Glacial period. Achim Brauer has included themes like Drainage basin, Hydrology and Geochemistry in his Sediment study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Varve (37.76%)
  • Physical geography (29.00%)
  • Holocene (27.79%)

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

  • Varve (37.76%)
  • Physical geography (29.00%)
  • Holocene (27.79%)

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

His main research concerns Varve, Physical geography, Holocene, Sediment and Oceanography. His Varve study contributes to a more complete understanding of Paleontology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Younger Dryas, Glacial period, Climate change, Paleoclimatology and Vegetation.

His studies deal with areas such as Volcano, Tephra, Climatology and Climate model as well as Holocene. In the subject of general Sediment, his work in Deposition is often linked to Radionuclide, thereby combining diverse domains of study. When carried out as part of a general Oceanography research project, his work on Benthic zone and North Atlantic oscillation is frequently linked to work in Dead sea, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Early anthropogenic impact on Western Central African rainforests 2,600 y ago (44 citations)
  • Interpreting historical, botanical, and geological evidence to aid preparations for future floods (43 citations)
  • A dual-biomarker approach for quantification of changes in relative humidity from sedimentary lipid D ∕ H ratios (29 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Paleontology

His scientific interests lie mostly in Varve, Physical geography, Holocene, Sediment and Climate change. Achim Brauer interconnects Geochemistry, Sedimentology, Flood myth, Facies and Maar in the investigation of issues within Varve. His Physical geography study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Radiocarbon dating, Younger Dryas, Macrofossil, Climate model and Chronology.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Sedimentary rock, Glacial period and Mediterranean climate in addition to Holocene. His Sediment research is included under the broader classification of Geomorphology. His Oceanography research incorporates themes from Atmospheric circulation and Period.
