Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • World War II
  • Oceanography

Denis Scholz mainly investigates Stalagmite, Mineralogy, Speleothem, Calcite and δ18O. His study with Stalagmite involves better knowledge in Cave. As a part of the same scientific family, Denis Scholz mostly works in the field of Cave, focusing on Holocene and, on occasion, North Atlantic oscillation, Interglacial, Physical geography and Quaternary.

While the research belongs to areas of Mineralogy, Denis Scholz spends his time largely on the problem of Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Silicate glass, Mc icp ms and Homogeneity. His study looks at the relationship between Speleothem and topics such as Hydrology, which overlap with Isotope fractionation. His work investigates the relationship between Calcite and topics such as Fractionation that intersect with problems in Analytical chemistry, Soil science, Microanalysis and Secular equilibrium.

His most cited work include:

  • Increased seasonality in Middle East temperatures during the last interglacial period (225 citations)
  • StalAge – An algorithm designed for construction of speleothem age models (206 citations)
  • StalAge – An algorithm designed for construction of speleothem age models (206 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Speleothem, Stalagmite, Cave, Oceanography and Holocene. His research on Speleothem also deals with topics like

  • Calcite which intersects with area such as Fractionation,
  • Glacial period that intertwine with fields like Ocean current. The concepts of his Stalagmite study are interwoven with issues in Climatology, δ18O, δ13C, Mineralogy and Physical geography.

His study explores the link between δ18O and topics such as Isotope fractionation that cross with problems in Oxygen isotope ratio cycle. Denis Scholz has included themes like Geochemistry, Paleontology, Radiocarbon dating and Permafrost in his Cave study. His Oceanography study incorporates themes from Seasonality and Interglacial.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Speleothem (34.68%)
  • Stalagmite (32.88%)
  • Cave (26.13%)

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

  • Speleothem (34.68%)
  • Cave (26.13%)
  • Holocene (23.87%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Speleothem, Cave, Holocene, Stalagmite and Physical geography. His Speleothem study combines topics in areas such as Glacial period, Trace element, Climate change, North Atlantic oscillation and Mediterranean climate. Denis Scholz interconnects Pleistocene, Paleoclimatology, Permafrost and Geochemistry, Calcite in the investigation of issues within Cave.

Calcite is a subfield of Mineralogy that Denis Scholz explores. His research on Stalagmite concerns the broader Paleontology. Δ13C, Isotope fractionation, Karst and Hydrology is closely connected to δ18O in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Physical geography.

Between 2017 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)
  • Calcium Carbonate and Phosphate Reference Materials for Monitoring Bulk and Microanalytical Determination of Sr Isotopes (24 citations)
  • Reconstruction of late Holocene autumn/winter precipitation variability in SW Romania from a high-resolution speleothem trace element record (19 citations)

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

  • Climate change
  • World War II
  • Oceanography

His primary scientific interests are in Speleothem, Cave, Physical geography, Holocene and Oceanography. His Speleothem research incorporates elements of Westerlies, Climate change, Mineralogy and North Atlantic oscillation. His work carried out in the field of Cave brings together such families of science as Radiocarbon dating, Pleistocene, Marine isotope stage, Trace element and Calcite.

The Physical geography study combines topics in areas such as Stalagmite, Paleoclimatology and Stadial. Much of his study explores Holocene relationship to Glacial period. In general Oceanography study, his work on Coral often relates to the realm of Diploria strigosa, thereby connecting several areas of interest.
