Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oceanography
  • Paleontology
  • Erosion

His scientific interests lie mostly in Oceanography, Sediment, Holocene, Geomorphology and Seismology. His Oceanography research incorporates themes from Sedimentary rock and Vegetation. In his study, Volcano is strongly linked to Storm, which falls under the umbrella field of Sedimentary rock.

Many of his research projects under Sediment are closely connected to Brackish water and Progradation with Brackish water and Progradation, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His Holocene study combines topics in areas such as Diatom, Bay, Quaternary and Salt marsh. His study on Deposition and Glacier is often connected to Multiple criteria and Graph as part of broader study in Geomorphology.

His most cited work include:

  • Observations by the International Tsunami Survey Team in Sri Lanka (219 citations)
  • New insights of tsunami hazard from the 2011 Tohoku-Oki event (214 citations)
  • Sedimentary differences between the 2002 Easter storm and the 15th-century Okoropunga tsunami, southeastern North Island, New Zealand (208 citations)

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

James Goff mostly deals with Oceanography, Sediment, Geomorphology, Sedimentary rock and Holocene. His Oceanography research includes themes of Seismology and Period. His Sediment research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Hydrology, Erosion and Geochemistry.

His work in Geomorphology is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Shore. When carried out as part of a general Sedimentary rock research project, his work on Clastic rock is frequently linked to work in Trench, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Holocene research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Prehistory, Subduction and Radiocarbon dating.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (35.78%)
  • Sediment (15.09%)
  • Geomorphology (14.22%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Oceanography (35.78%)
  • Sedimentary rock (15.09%)
  • Paleontology (9.48%)

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

Oceanography, Sedimentary rock, Paleontology, Bay and Natural hazard are his primary areas of study. His Oceanography research focuses on Period and how it connects with Freshwater systems. James Goff has researched Sedimentary rock in several fields, including Sediment and Shore.

His Sediment study improves the overall literature in Geomorphology. His work on Radiocarbon dating, Paleoecology and Subduction as part of his general Paleontology study is frequently connected to Context, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. In his research on the topic of Natural hazard, Environmental planning is strongly related with Hazard.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Tsunamis in the geological record: Making waves with a cautionary tale from the Mediterranean (35 citations)
  • Tsunamis in the geological record: Making waves with a cautionary tale from the Mediterranean (35 citations)
  • Tsunami runup and tide-gauge observations from the 14 November 2016 M7.8 Kaikōura earthquake, New Zealand (27 citations)

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

  • Paleontology
  • Archaeology
  • Erosion

His main research concerns Sedimentary rock, Oceanography, Storm, Bay and Sediment. The concepts of his Sedimentary rock study are interwoven with issues in Shore, Grain size and Holocene. His Oceanography study combines topics in areas such as Tectonic subsidence, Tectonic uplift and Fault.

He interconnects Mediterranean climate, Physical geography, Indian ocean and Before Present in the investigation of issues within Storm. His Deposition study in the realm of Sediment connects with subjects such as Harbour. Deposition is a subfield of Geomorphology that James Goff investigates.
