Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oceanography
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Ecology

His primary scientific interests are in Oceanography, Ice sheet, Glacial period, Sea ice and Antarctic ice sheet. His Oceanography research includes elements of Sediment, Terrigenous sediment and Quaternary. His work carried out in the field of Ice sheet brings together such families of science as Meltwater, Ice shelf, Antarctic sea ice and Ice stream.

Gerhard Kuhn has included themes like Physical geography and Geomorphology in his Ice stream study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Phytoplankton, North Atlantic Deep Water, Biogenic silica and Boundary current in addition to Glacial period. His Antarctic ice sheet study combines topics in areas such as Paleontology and Deglaciation.

His most cited work include:

  • Obliquity-paced Pliocene West Antarctic ice sheet oscillations (438 citations)
  • Clay mineral distribution in surface sediments of the South Atlantic: sources, transport, and relation to oceanography (382 citations)
  • Benthic foraminiferal assemblages from the eastern Weddell Sea between 68 and 73°S: Distribution, ecology and fossilization potential (171 citations)

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

Gerhard Kuhn mainly focuses on Oceanography, Sediment core, Geochemistry, Glacial period and Sediment. Ice sheet, Holocene, Sea ice, Last Glacial Maximum and Deglaciation are the core of his Oceanography study. The various areas that Gerhard Kuhn examines in his Ice sheet study include Ice stream, Cryosphere, Ice shelf, Antarctic ice sheet and Antarctic sea ice.

Gerhard Kuhn interconnects Iceberg and Geomorphology in the investigation of issues within Ice shelf. Gerhard Kuhn works mostly in the field of Sediment core, limiting it down to topics relating to Mineralogy and, in certain cases, Grain size, as a part of the same area of interest. The study incorporates disciplines such as Glacier, Continental shelf and Quaternary in addition to Glacial period.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (37.06%)
  • Sediment core (36.31%)
  • Geochemistry (20.48%)

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

  • Geochemistry (20.48%)
  • Sediment core (36.31%)
  • Oceanography (37.06%)

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

Gerhard Kuhn spends much of his time researching Geochemistry, Sediment core, Oceanography, Documentation and Sediment. His Oceanography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Glacial period and Isotopes of oxygen. His work deals with themes such as Sedimentary rock, Continental shelf and Ice shelf, which intersect with Glacial period.

His Ice shelf study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Seafloor spreading and Antarctic ice sheet. His Sediment research incorporates elements of Hydrology, Soil science, Environmental chemistry and Clay minerals. The Holocene study which covers Ice sheet that intersects with Ice-sheet dynamics.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Benthic meltwater fjord habitats formed by rapid glacier recession on King George Island, Antarctica (13 citations)
  • Using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy to determine mineral phases in sediments (12 citations)
  • Geochemical fingerprints of glacially eroded bedrock from West Antarctica: Detrital thermochronology, radiogenic isotope systematics and trace element geochemistry in Late Holocene glacial-marine sediments (11 citations)

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

  • Oceanography
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Ecology

His primary areas of study are Oceanography, Glacial period, Holocene, Geochemistry and Ice sheet. His Oceanography research integrates issues from Isotopes of oxygen and Terrigenous sediment. His Glacial period study incorporates themes from Climate model, Antarctic Bottom Water, Glacier, Antarctic ice sheet and Southern Hemisphere.

The Holocene study combines topics in areas such as Carbonate platform and Pleistocene. His research integrates issues of Continental shelf, Radiocarbon dating and Quaternary in his study of Geochemistry. Gerhard Kuhn has included themes like Deglaciation and Ice shelf in his Ice sheet study.
