Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oceanography
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Erosion

Frank Niessen mostly deals with Oceanography, Glacial period, Holocene, Paleontology and Ice sheet. Oceanography is a component of his Arctic, Last Glacial Maximum and Seafloor spreading studies. Frank Niessen has included themes like Glacier and Radiocarbon dating in his Glacial period study.

His Holocene study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Physical geography, Sediment and Pleistocene. Frank Niessen combines subjects such as Arctic ice pack and Ice-sheet model with his study of Ice sheet. His work carried out in the field of Antarctic sea ice brings together such families of science as Ice core and Antarctic ice sheet.

His most cited work include:

  • Late quaternary ice sheet history of northern Eurasia (1086 citations)
  • Obliquity-paced Pliocene West Antarctic ice sheet oscillations (438 citations)
  • Lake Qinghai, China: closed-basin like levels and the oxygen isotope record for ostracoda since the latest Pleistocene (404 citations)

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

Frank Niessen spends much of his time researching Oceanography, Sediment core, Paleontology, Geomorphology and Glacial period. His research investigates the connection between Oceanography and topics such as Sediment that intersect with problems in Echo sounding. The Sediment core study combines topics in areas such as Hydrology, Geochemistry, Environmental chemistry and Soil science.

His research integrates issues of Quaternary, Physical geography and Unconformity in his study of Glacial period. His Ice sheet research incorporates elements of Arctic ice pack and Cryosphere, Ice shelf. His Antarctic sea ice study typically links adjacent topics like Ice stream.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (36.05%)
  • Sediment core (25.87%)
  • Paleontology (18.90%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Oceanography (36.05%)
  • Arctic (13.66%)
  • Paleontology (18.90%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Oceanography, Arctic, Paleontology, Sediment core and Biomarker. Many of his studies on Oceanography apply to Ridge as well. His work on Ice-sheet dynamics expands to the thematically related Paleontology.

His study in Sediment core is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Geochemistry and Table. His work investigates the relationship between Ice sheet and topics such as Cryosphere that intersect with problems in Ice core. To a larger extent, Frank Niessen studies Geomorphology with the aim of understanding Glacial period.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Evidence for ice-free summers in the late Miocene central Arctic Ocean (71 citations)
  • Holocene variability in sea ice cover, primary production, and Pacific‐Water inflow and climate change in the Chukchi and East Siberian Seas (Arctic Ocean) (47 citations)
  • Arctic Ocean sea ice cover during the penultimate glacial and the last interglacial. (45 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Oceanography
  • Erosion

Frank Niessen mainly focuses on Oceanography, Paleontology, Arctic, Ice sheet and Glacial period. Frank Niessen studies Oceanography, focusing on Sea ice in particular. His research on Paleontology often connects related topics like Ice-sheet dynamics.

Ice sheet is closely attributed to Beaufort Gyre in his work. He has researched Glacial period in several fields, including Sediment and Pleistocene. His Ice stream study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Ice shelf and Iceberg.
