Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Climate change

His primary areas of study are Speleothem, Stalagmite, Climatology, Paleontology and Cave. His Speleothem study combines topics in areas such as Radiocarbon dating, Paleoclimatology, Trace element and Mineralogy, Calcite. His research in Stalagmite intersects with topics in Climate change, δ18O, Chronology and Stadial.

His Climatology study incorporates themes from Isotopes of oxygen and Mediterranean sea. His Paleontology course of study focuses on Carbon cycle and Stratotype, Phanerozoic, Stratigraphy and Permian. Christoph Spötl usually deals with Cave and limits it to topics linked to Hydrology and Geochemistry and Dissolved organic carbon.

His most cited work include:

  • Improvements in 230Th dating, 230Th and 234U half-life values, and U–Th isotopic measurements by multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (657 citations)
  • Modification and preservation of environmental signals in speleothems (560 citations)
  • Continuous‐flow isotope ratio mass spectrometric analysis of carbonate minerals (469 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Cave, Speleothem, Stalagmite, Paleontology and Geochemistry. His studies deal with areas such as Karst, Hydrology, δ18O and Radiocarbon dating as well as Cave. Christoph Spötl has researched Speleothem in several fields, including Glacial period, Interglacial, Trace element, Physical geography and Ice core.

Christoph Spötl interconnects Climatology, Climate change, Paleoclimatology and Precipitation in the investigation of issues within Stalagmite. His work in Pleistocene and Chronology is related to Paleontology. His work carried out in the field of Geochemistry brings together such families of science as Aquifer and Geomorphology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cave (35.56%)
  • Speleothem (31.55%)
  • Stalagmite (24.60%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Speleothem (31.55%)
  • Physical geography (16.84%)
  • Cave (35.56%)

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

Christoph Spötl mainly focuses on Speleothem, Physical geography, Cave, Glacial period and Holocene. His Speleothem study also includes fields such as

  • δ18O which intersects with area such as Marine isotope stage, Climatology, Isotope fractionation and Isotopes of oxygen,
  • Precipitation and related Mineralogy. His Physical geography research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Proxy, Younger Dryas, Interglacial, Stadial and Stalagmite.

Christoph Spötl has included themes like Period and Climate change in his Stalagmite study. The Cave study combines topics in areas such as Geochemistry and Permafrost. In Holocene, Christoph Spötl works on issues like Atmospheric circulation, which are connected to Northern Hemisphere and Monsoon.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Simulating speleothem growth in the laboratory: Determination of the stable isotope fractionation (δ13C and δ18O) between H2O, DIC and CaCO3 (25 citations)
  • Dual clumped isotope thermometry resolves kinetic biases in carbonate formation temperatures. (14 citations)
  • Persistent influence of obliquity on ice age terminations since the Middle Pleistocene transition (13 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology
  • Climate change

Christoph Spötl spends much of his time researching Speleothem, Glacial period, Mediterranean climate, Holocene and δ18O. The subject of his Speleothem research is within the realm of Cave. His studies in Glacial period integrate themes in fields like δ13C, Stalagmite and Physical geography.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Period, Trace element and Calcite. His biological study deals with issues like Atmospheric circulation, which deal with fields such as Ice rafting, North Atlantic oscillation, Storm, Global warming and Northern Hemisphere. His δ18O study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Isotopes of carbon, Marine isotope stage, Analytical chemistry, Isotopes of oxygen and Isotope fractionation.
