Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Sediment

His primary areas of study are Paleontology, Sedimentary depositional environment, Facies, Quaternary and Sequence stratigraphy. His study in Paleontology focuses on Progradation and Fluvial. The study incorporates disciplines such as Holocene and Alluvial plain in addition to Sedimentary depositional environment.

His Facies research incorporates themes from Coastal plain and Glacial period. His Quaternary research includes elements of Geochemistry and Alluvium, Geomorphology. His research in Sequence stratigraphy intersects with topics in Siliciclastic, Transgressive and Maturity.

His most cited work include:

  • Markers of the last interglacial sea-level high stand along the coast of Italy: Tectonic implications (349 citations)
  • Holocene relative sea-level changes and vertical movements along the Italian and Istrian coastlines (175 citations)
  • Glaucony and Sequence Stratigraphy: A Conceptual Framework of Distribution in Siliciclastic Sequences (169 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Paleontology, Holocene, Quaternary, Coastal plain and Sequence stratigraphy. Paleontology is represented through his Sedimentary depositional environment, Facies, Fluvial, Sedimentary rock and Progradation research. His work carried out in the field of Holocene brings together such families of science as Ecological succession, Transgressive and Physical geography.

His Quaternary research incorporates elements of Glacial period, Pleistocene, Alluvium, Geochemistry and Marine transgression. His Coastal plain research integrates issues from Radiocarbon dating, Alluvial plain and Geomorphology. His Sequence stratigraphy research includes themes of Stratigraphy and Last Glacial Maximum.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (49.06%)
  • Holocene (31.60%)
  • Quaternary (29.25%)

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

  • Holocene (31.60%)
  • Paleontology (49.06%)
  • Oceanography (8.96%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Holocene, Paleontology, Oceanography, Sedimentary rock and Sedimentary depositional environment. His study in Holocene is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Pleistocene, Coastal plain, Quaternary, Marine transgression and Facies. Alessandro Amorosi integrates many fields in his works, including Paleontology and Northern italy.

The Oceanography study combines topics in areas such as Flooding and Provenance. His Sedimentary depositional environment research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Taphonomy, Benthic zone and Ecological succession. His Progradation study also includes

  • Fluvial that intertwine with fields like Sea level,
  • Sediment most often made with reference to Sequence stratigraphy.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Sediment composition, provenance, and Holocene paleoenvironmental evolution of the Southern Po River coastal plain (Italy) (17 citations)
  • Three‐fold nature of coastal progradation during the Holocene eustatic highstand, Po Plain, Italy – close correspondence of stratal character with distribution patterns (11 citations)
  • Deciphering the effects of human activity on urban areas through morphostratigraphic analysis: The case of Pisa, Northwest Italy (11 citations)

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

  • Paleontology
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Sediment

Alessandro Amorosi mainly investigates Holocene, Paleontology, Facies, Sedimentary rock and Sequence stratigraphy. The study of Holocene is intertwined with the study of Coastal plain in a number of ways. Paleontology is a component of his Sedimentary depositional environment and Structural basin studies.

His work deals with themes such as Diachronous, Hydrocarbon exploration, Quaternary and Aquifer, which intersect with Sedimentary depositional environment. His Facies study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Urbanization, Marine transgression and Archaeology. His Sequence stratigraphy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Taxon, Fluvial and Progradation.
