Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Paleontology
  • Sedimentary rock

Birgit Plessen focuses on Oceanography, Glacial period, Holocene, Last Glacial Maximum and Sediment. Her Oceanography research includes elements of Organic matter, Nitrate, Ice age and Interglacial. Her study in Glacial period is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Stratification and Subarctic climate.

Her study ties her expertise on Climatology together with the subject of Holocene. Her work deals with themes such as Global warming, Physical geography and Ostracod, which intersect with Climatology. As a member of one scientific family, Birgit Plessen mostly works in the field of Sediment, focusing on Flood myth and, on occasion, Varve, Deposition, Tributary, Northern Hemisphere and Drainage basin.

Her most cited work include:

  • Prolonged monsoon droughts and links to Indo-Pacific warm pool: A Holocene record from Lonar Lake, central India (120 citations)
  • Dynamics of the Laschamp geomagnetic excursion from Black Sea sediments (113 citations)
  • Evidence from diatom-bound nitrogen isotopes for subarctic Pacific stratification during the last ice age and a link to North Pacific denitrification changes (110 citations)

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

Birgit Plessen mostly deals with Holocene, Physical geography, Oceanography, Geochemistry and Varve. Her Holocene research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Westerlies, Climatology and Glacial period. Her Physical geography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Younger Dryas and Plateau.

In the subject of general Oceanography, her work in Ostracod, Diatom, Water column and Foraminifera is often linked to Environmental science, thereby combining diverse domains of study. The various areas that Birgit Plessen examines in her Geochemistry study include Geomorphology, Organic matter and Sediment core. Her Varve research incorporates themes from Climate change and Isotopes of carbon.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Holocene (21.70%)
  • Physical geography (19.81%)
  • Oceanography (19.81%)

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

  • Physical geography (19.81%)
  • Varve (14.15%)
  • Oceanography (19.81%)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Physical geography, Varve, Oceanography, Paleontology and Geochemistry. Her studies in Physical geography integrate themes in fields like Period and Younger Dryas, Climate change, Paleoclimatology, Holocene. Borrowing concepts from Siberian High, Birgit Plessen weaves in ideas under Holocene.

Her work on Ostracod and Benthic zone as part of general Oceanography study is frequently linked to Eastern mediterranean and Dead sea, bridging the gap between disciplines. Her research investigates the connection with Paleontology and areas like Plateau which intersect with concerns in Micropaleontology. In her study, Organic matter is inextricably linked to Deposition, which falls within the broad field of Geochemistry.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • New high-resolution age data from the Ediacaran-Cambrian boundary indicate rapid, ecologically driven onset of the Cambrian explosion (54 citations)
  • Site-specific sediment responses to climate change during the last 140 years in three varved lakes in Northern Poland: (14 citations)
  • Carbon and oxygen isotope fractionation in the water-calcite-aragonite system (12 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Paleontology
  • Sedimentary rock

Birgit Plessen spends much of her time researching Physical geography, Quaternary, Varve, Sediment and Paleontology. Birgit Plessen has included themes like Pleistocene, Marine isotope stage, Sedimentary rock, δ18O and Taiga in her Physical geography study. Her Quaternary study combines topics in areas such as Boreal, Period, Shore, Deciduous and Last Glacial Maximum.

Birgit Plessen interconnects Isotopes of carbon, Deposition, Climate change, Carbonate and Hydrology in the investigation of issues within Varve. The concepts of her Sediment study are interwoven with issues in Geochemistry, Proxy, Climate model and Surface runoff. Her Paleontology research includes elements of Plateau and Micropaleontology.
