Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Ecology
  • Oceanography

Ellen Thomas focuses on Oceanography, Paleontology, Benthic zone, Eocene Thermal Maximum 2 and Deep sea. The concepts of her Paleontology study are interwoven with issues in Geochemistry, Ocean current and Paleoclimatology. Her research in Benthic zone intersects with topics in Organic matter, Species richness, Extinction and Plankton.

Within one scientific family, Ellen Thomas focuses on topics pertaining to Methane under Eocene Thermal Maximum 2, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Tonne, Weathering, Silicate, Environmental chemistry and Sedimentary rock. Her work deals with themes such as Earth science, Global change and Isotopes of carbon, which intersect with Global warming. Her Earth science research incorporates themes from Flood basalt, Quaternary, Pliocene climate, Continental margin and Global cooling.

Her most cited work include:

  • Trends, Rhythms, and Aberrations in Global Climate 65 Ma to Present (6911 citations)
  • Trends, Rhythms, and Aberrations in Global Climate 65 Ma to Present (6911 citations)
  • Rapid acidification of the ocean during the Paleocene-Eocene thermal maximum. (776 citations)

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

Ellen Thomas mostly deals with Oceanography, Benthic zone, Paleontology, Foraminifera and Deep sea. Her study in the field of Global warming is also linked to topics like Environmental science. Her studies in Benthic zone integrate themes in fields like Productivity, Abyssal zone and Fauna.

Her Paleontology research focuses on Table and how it connects with Mineralogy. She combines subjects such as Cretaceous–Paleogene boundary, Abundance, Pelagic zone and Plankton with her study of Foraminifera. Her Carbon cycle research incorporates elements of Earth science and Isotopes of carbon.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (83.70%)
  • Benthic zone (60.22%)
  • Paleontology (57.61%)

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

  • Oceanography (83.70%)
  • Benthic zone (60.22%)
  • Foraminifera (44.78%)

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

Oceanography, Benthic zone, Foraminifera, Extinction event and Paleontology are her primary areas of study. Her study in the field of Climate change, Global warming, Sea surface temperature and TEX86 also crosses realms of Environmental science. In her study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Global warming, Glacial period and Ocean deoxygenation is strongly linked to Ocean current.

Her study in Benthic zone is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Bottom water, Abyssal zone and Productivity. Her studies deal with areas such as Carbon cycle, Earth science and Paleogene as well as Extinction event. The various areas that she examines in her Paleontology study include Scale and Plot.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Late inception of a resiliently oxygenated upper ocean. (67 citations)
  • On impact and volcanism across the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary (48 citations)
  • On impact and volcanism across the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary (48 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Paleontology
  • Carbon dioxide

Ellen Thomas spends much of her time researching Extinction event, Deep sea, Earth science, Carbon cycle and Cretaceous–Paleogene boundary. Her Deep sea research integrates issues from Cenozoic, Sea surface temperature, TEX86 and Climate model, Climate sensitivity. Her Earth science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Global warming, Cretaceous, Paleogene and Marine productivity.

Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Bolide and Flood basalt. Her Carbon cycle research includes themes of Isotopes of nitrogen and Isotopes of carbon. As part of one scientific family, Ellen Thomas deals mainly with the area of Cretaceous–Paleogene boundary, narrowing it down to issues related to the Sedimentary rock, and often Weathering, Ocean current, Carbonate compensation depth and Volcano.
