Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • Paleontology
  • Erosion

Ian Snowball focuses on Holocene, Magnetite, Mineralogy, Varve and Greigite. His research integrates issues of Secular variation and Physical geography in his study of Holocene. Ian Snowball has researched Magnetite in several fields, including Geochemistry and Sediment.

His Geochemistry research integrates issues from Magnetotactic bacteria and Total organic carbon. Ian Snowball works mostly in the field of Varve, limiting it down to topics relating to Environmental change and, in certain cases, Paleoclimatology, Glacial period, Quaternary and Northern Hemisphere, as a part of the same area of interest. His study in the fields of Natural remanent magnetization under the domain of Remanence overlaps with other disciplines such as Magnetosome and Geomorphology.

His most cited work include:

  • Solar activity during the last 1000 yr inferred from radionuclide records (252 citations)
  • Magnetic hysteresis properties of greigite (Fe3S4) and a new occurrence in Holocene sediments from Swedish Lappland (164 citations)
  • Sea surface temperatures and ice rafting in the Holocene North Atlantic: climate influences on northern Europe and Greenland (144 citations)

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

Holocene, Sediment, Oceanography, Paleontology and Varve are his primary areas of study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Glacial period, Climatology, Quaternary and Physical geography. His Sediment research also works with subjects such as

  • Geochemistry that connect with fields like Magnetite and Greigite,
  • Hydrology together with Total organic carbon.

The various areas that he examines in his Oceanography study include Structural basin and Sedimentation. In general Paleontology study, his work on Sedimentary depositional environment, Pleistocene and Deglaciation often relates to the realm of Earth's magnetic field, thereby connecting several areas of interest. He focuses mostly in the field of Varve, narrowing it down to matters related to Radiocarbon dating and, in some cases, Climate change and Hydrography.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Holocene (31.07%)
  • Sediment (25.99%)
  • Oceanography (20.34%)

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

  • Geochemistry (12.99%)
  • Contamination (3.95%)
  • Sediment (25.99%)

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

His primary areas of study are Geochemistry, Contamination, Sediment, Environmental remediation and Paleontology. His research in Geochemistry tackles topics such as Baltic sea which are related to areas like Greigite. His Sediment study incorporates themes from Estuary, Benthic zone and Provenance.

His work on Pleistocene, Paleomagnetism and Sedimentary rock as part of general Paleontology research is often related to Earth's magnetic field, thus linking different fields of science. Ian Snowball works mostly in the field of Bottom water, limiting it down to topics relating to Contourite and, in certain cases, Radiocarbon dating. His Oceanography study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Varve, Varve chronology, Paleoecology and Boreal lakes.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Changes in sea ice cover and ice sheet extent at the Yermak Plateau during the last 160 ka – Reconstructions from biomarker records (23 citations)
  • Late Pleistocene Chronology of Sediments From the Yermak Plateau and Uncertainty in Dating Based on Geomagnetic Excursions (11 citations)
  • Distribution and dispersal of metals in contaminated fibrous sediments of industrial origin (11 citations)

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

  • Climate change
  • Paleontology
  • Erosion

His scientific interests lie mostly in Contamination, Sediment, Aquatic ecosystem, Sediment remediation and Environmental remediation. His studies in Contamination integrate themes in fields like Benthic zone, Food chain and Anoxic waters. The concepts of his Sediment study are interwoven with issues in Geochemistry and Baltic sea.

His Sediment remediation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Environmental planning, Pollution, Environmental quality and Dredging. While the research belongs to areas of Bottom water, Ian Snowball spends his time largely on the problem of Radiocarbon dating, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Oceanography. His Oceanography research integrates issues from Phytoplankton and Glacial period.
