2012 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • Statistics
  • Global warming

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ice sheet, Climatology, Ice-sheet model, Antarctic ice sheet and Ice stream. The subject of his Ice sheet research is within the realm of Oceanography. His Climatology research integrates issues from Global warming, Climate model, Paleoclimatology and Atmospheric sciences.

David Pollard combines subjects such as Tundra, Carbon cycle, Orbital forcing and Climate sensitivity with his study of Atmospheric sciences. Ice-sheet model is a primary field of his research addressed under Cryosphere. In his study, Ice core is strongly linked to Antarctic sea ice, which falls under the umbrella field of Ice stream.

His most cited work include:

  • An integrated biosphere model of land surface processes, terrestrial carbon balance, and vegetation dynamics (1023 citations)
  • Contribution of Antarctica to past and future sea-level rise (898 citations)
  • Rapid Cenozoic glaciation of Antarctica induced by declining atmospheric CO2. (804 citations)

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

His main research concerns Ice sheet, Climatology, Ice-sheet model, Antarctic ice sheet and Cryosphere. His Ice sheet research incorporates themes from Sea ice, Ice shelf, Ice stream and Antarctic sea ice. His Climatology research integrates issues from Climate change, Climate model, Paleoclimatology, Atmospheric sciences and Precipitation.

His work carried out in the field of Atmospheric sciences brings together such families of science as Snow and Global warming. David Pollard has included themes like Glacial period, Ice age, Geomorphology, Sea ice thickness and Greenland ice sheet in his Ice-sheet model study. His study looks at the relationship between Antarctic ice sheet and fields such as Sea level, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ice sheet (50.70%)
  • Climatology (46.13%)
  • Ice-sheet model (33.80%)

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

  • Antarctic ice sheet (29.93%)
  • Ice sheet (50.70%)
  • Ice-sheet model (33.80%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Antarctic ice sheet, Ice sheet, Ice-sheet model, Climatology and Sea level. His Antarctic ice sheet research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Ice stream, Future sea level, Bedrock, Paleontology and Radiative forcing. The various areas that David Pollard examines in his Ice sheet study include Ice shelf, Deglaciation, Holocene and Glacier, Physical geography.

His Ice-sheet model study incorporates themes from Glacial period, Post-glacial rebound, Geophysics, Paleoclimatology and Pleistocene. His Climatology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Meltwater, Climate change and Interglacial. His Sea level study combines topics in areas such as Greenhouse gas and Geomorphology.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • initMIP-Antarctica: an ice sheet model initialization experiment of ISMIP6 (26 citations)
  • A Coupled Ice Sheet–Sea Level Model Incorporating 3D Earth Structure: Variations in Antarctica during the Last Deglacial Retreat (25 citations)
  • Projecting Antarctica's contribution to future sea level rise from basal ice shelf melt using linear response functions of 16 ice sheet models (LARMIP-2) (20 citations)
