Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Climate change
  • Ecology

Paleontology, Eocene Thermal Maximum 2, Oceanography, Paleogene and Environmental science are his primary areas of study. His work deals with themes such as Ice sheet, Paleoclimatology and Isotopes of carbon, which intersect with Paleontology. The various areas that James C Zachos examines in his Paleoclimatology study include Ocean current and Earth science.

To a larger extent, he studies Carbon cycle with the aim of understanding Eocene Thermal Maximum 2. Oceanography is frequently linked to Isotopes of oxygen in his study. His studies in Paleogene integrate themes in fields like Foraminifera and Cenozoic.

His most cited work include:

  • Trends, Rhythms, and Aberrations in Global Climate 65 Ma to Present (6911 citations)
  • An early Cenozoic perspective on greenhouse warming and carbon-cycle dynamics (2010 citations)
  • Target atmospheric CO2: Where should humanity aim? (893 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Paleontology, Oceanography, Table, Benthic zone and Foraminifera. The concepts of his Paleontology study are interwoven with issues in Deep sea and Isotopes of carbon. His study on Ocean acidification and Global warming is often connected to Environmental science as part of broader study in Oceanography.

His Global warming research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Paleoclimatology and Greenhouse gas. The study incorporates disciplines such as Analytical chemistry, Mineralogy and Geodesy in addition to Table. His Foraminifera study frequently links to other fields, such as Plankton.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (39.71%)
  • Oceanography (31.09%)
  • Table (20.80%)

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

  • Table (20.80%)
  • Paleontology (39.71%)
  • Oceanography (31.09%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Table, Paleontology, Oceanography, Benthic zone and Mineralogy. His Table study also includes

  • Geodesy that intertwine with fields like Declination,
  • Calcareous, which have a strong connection to Geochemistry. His work carried out in the field of Paleontology brings together such families of science as Isotopes of oxygen and Isotopes of carbon.

His Isotopes of oxygen research focuses on Holocene climatic optimum and how it connects with Deep sea. His work on Eocene Thermal Maximum 2 as part of general Oceanography study is frequently connected to Environmental science, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. He combines subjects such as Carbon cycle and Orbital forcing with his study of Benthic zone.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Anthropogenic carbon release rate unprecedented during the past 66 million years (179 citations)
  • Antarctic Ice Sheet variability across the Eocene-Oligocene boundary climate transition (61 citations)
  • The DeepMIP contribution to PMIP4: methodologies for selection, compilation and analysis of latest Paleocene and early Eocene climate proxy data, incorporating version 0.1 of the DeepMIP database (58 citations)

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

  • Paleontology
  • Climate change
  • Ecology

His main research concerns Paleontology, Oceanography, Sedimentary rock, Carbon isotope excursion and Isotopes of carbon. His Paleontology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as δ13C, Deep sea and Carbon cycle. His research integrates issues of Structural basin, Plateau and δ18O in his study of Oceanography.

His Carbon isotope excursion study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Mineralogy and Atmospheric sciences. His study in the field of Eocene Thermal Maximum 2 also crosses realms of Paleosol. His Paleoceanography research focuses on Cretaceous and how it relates to Paleoclimatology.
