Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Astronomy
  • Geophysics

Donald D. Blankenship mostly deals with Ice stream, Geomorphology, Ice sheet, Antarctic ice sheet and Glacier. His research in Ice stream intersects with topics in Ice shelf, Earth science and Shear stress. His study in Geomorphology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Feature and Tectonics.

Donald D. Blankenship has included themes like Subglacial stream, Sea ice, Petrology, Physical geography and Pore water pressure in his Ice sheet study. His studies in Antarctic ice sheet integrate themes in fields like Glacial period, Paleontology and Glacier morphology, Antarctic sea ice, Ice divide. His study focuses on the intersection of Glacier and fields such as Pressure ridge with connections in the field of Perturbation and Data flow model.

His most cited work include:

  • Bedmap2: improved ice bed, surface and thickness datasets for Antarctica (1099 citations)
  • Deformation of till beneath ice stream B, West Antarctica (455 citations)
  • Till beneath ice stream B: 3. Till deformation: Evidence and implications (315 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Geomorphology, Ice sheet, Ice stream, Glacier and Antarctic ice sheet. His work deals with themes such as Depth sounding and Subglacial lake, which intersect with Geomorphology. Donald D. Blankenship works mostly in the field of Ice sheet, limiting it down to topics relating to Ice shelf and, in certain cases, Iceberg, as a part of the same area of interest.

His Ice stream research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Antarctic sea ice and Ice core. Donald D. Blankenship has researched Glacier in several fields, including Glaciology and Geodesy. His Antarctic ice sheet research integrates issues from Paleontology and Ice divide.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geomorphology (29.72%)
  • Ice sheet (24.44%)
  • Ice stream (22.50%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Geomorphology (29.72%)
  • Glacier (20.56%)
  • Ice sheet (24.44%)

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

Donald D. Blankenship spends much of his time researching Geomorphology, Glacier, Ice sheet, Ice shelf and Cryosphere. His Geomorphology study incorporates themes from Ice-sheet dynamics and Depth sounding. As part of one scientific family, Donald D. Blankenship deals mainly with the area of Glacier, narrowing it down to issues related to the Elevation, and often Altimeter.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Ice sheet, Paleontology and Glacial period is strongly linked to Antarctic ice sheet. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Canyon and Ice stream. His Antarctic sea ice research extends to the thematically linked field of Ice stream.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Deep glacial troughs and stabilizing ridges unveiled beneath the margins of the Antarctic ice sheet (90 citations)
  • Ocean heat drives rapid basal melt of the Totten Ice Shelf. (76 citations)
  • The Australo-Antarctic Columbia to Gondwana transition (71 citations)

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

  • Astronomy
  • Statistics
  • Geophysics

Donald D. Blankenship mainly investigates Ice sheet, Geomorphology, Ice stream, Antarctic ice sheet and Glacier. Ice sheet is a subfield of Oceanography that Donald D. Blankenship explores. His work in Geomorphology addresses subjects such as Paleontology, which are connected to disciplines such as Ice core and European Project for Ice Coring in Antarctica.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Ice shelf and Antarctic sea ice in addition to Ice stream. His study looks at the intersection of Antarctic ice sheet and topics like Structural basin with Sea surface temperature, Sea level rise, Elevation and Climate change. His Glacier research incorporates elements of Glaciology, Glacial period and Sea level.
