Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • Paleontology
  • Ecosystem

His primary scientific interests are in Holocene, Oceanography, Climate change, Paleoclimatology and Maya. His research integrates issues of δ18O, Deforestation and Chronology in his study of Holocene. His Oceanography study incorporates themes from Marine isotope stage and Glacial period.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Physical geography and Ostracod in addition to Climate change. His Physical geography study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Mesoamerica and Arid. His work in Maya addresses subjects such as Period, which are connected to disciplines such as Precipitation.

His most cited work include:

  • Possible role of climate in the collapse of Classic Maya civilization (697 citations)
  • Solar Forcing of Drought Frequency in the Maya Lowlands (441 citations)
  • Abrupt Temperature Changes in the Western Mediterranean over the Past 250,000 Years (361 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Oceanography, Holocene, Physical geography, Sediment and Climate change. His studies in Oceanography integrate themes in fields like Glacial period and Isotopes of carbon. His Holocene research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Deforestation, δ18O and Precipitation.

As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Physical geography, focusing on Pleistocene and, on occasion, Chronology. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Sediment, Total organic carbon is strongly linked to Organic matter. Jason H. Curtis has researched Climate change in several fields, including Period, Isotope geochemistry and Maya.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (32.20%)
  • Holocene (27.68%)
  • Physical geography (19.77%)

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

  • Holocene (27.68%)
  • Physical geography (19.77%)
  • Oceanography (32.20%)

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

His primary areas of study are Holocene, Physical geography, Oceanography, Sediment and Total organic carbon. His study in the fields of Last Glacial Maximum under the domain of Holocene overlaps with other disciplines such as Volcanism. His Physical geography research includes themes of Glacial period, Radiocarbon dating, Pleistocene, Evaporite and Arid.

His Arid research focuses on subjects like Global climate, which are linked to Paleoclimatology. His Oceanography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Organic matter and Vegetation. His Sediment research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Diatom, Lake ecosystem and Shallow lake.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Decoupled early Holocene summer temperature and monsoon precipitation in southwest China (34 citations)
  • Quantification of drought during the collapse of the classic Maya civilization (32 citations)
  • A late Pleistocene-Holocene multi-proxy record of climate variability in the Jazmurian playa, southeastern Iran (15 citations)

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

  • Paleontology
  • Climate change
  • Ecosystem

His primary scientific interests are in Holocene, Physical geography, Oceanography, Precipitation and Arid. His work in Holocene tackles topics such as Monsoon which are related to areas like Isotopes of oxygen, Ice sheet, Temperature record and Younger Dryas. His Physical geography research incorporates elements of Radiocarbon dating, Reforestation, Pleistocene, Macrofossil and Deforestation.

His studies deal with areas such as Organic matter and Mangrove as well as Oceanography. His work deals with themes such as Spatial heterogeneity, Quaternary and Paleolimnology, which intersect with Precipitation. His study in Arid is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Stadial and Climate change, Paleoclimatology, Global climate.
