Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Climate change

John P. Smol mainly investigates Ecology, Diatom, Oceanography, Arctic and Sediment. His study in Algae, Canonical correspondence analysis, Environmental change, Paleolimnology and Aquatic ecosystem falls within the category of Ecology. His studies in Diatom integrate themes in fields like Tundra, Drainage basin, Water quality, Benthic zone and Eutrophication.

John P. Smol frequently studies issues relating to Nutrient and Oceanography. Within one scientific family, John P. Smol focuses on topics pertaining to Climate change under Arctic, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Sedimentology, Climatology and Ecology. He has researched Sediment in several fields, including Hydrology, Lake water, Environmental chemistry and Acid rain.

His most cited work include:

  • Tracking Environmental Change Using Lake Sediments (1699 citations)
  • The diatoms : applications for the environmental and earth sciences (1076 citations)
  • Tracking environmental change using lake sediments. Volume 3: Terrestrial, algal, and siliceous indicators. (953 citations)

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

John P. Smol mainly focuses on Ecology, Diatom, Oceanography, Paleolimnology and Arctic. As part of his studies on Ecology, John P. Smol often connects relevant areas like Sediment. His work in Diatom tackles topics such as Benthic zone which are related to areas like Fragilaria.

His studies link Nutrient with Oceanography. His studies deal with areas such as Watershed, Physical geography, Subfossil, Cladocera and Dissolved organic carbon as well as Paleolimnology. His study in Arctic is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Aquatic ecosystem, Freshwater ecosystem and Seabird.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (55.83%)
  • Diatom (31.61%)
  • Oceanography (27.92%)

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

  • Ecology (55.83%)
  • Climate change (17.43%)
  • Oceanography (27.92%)

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

John P. Smol spends much of his time researching Ecology, Climate change, Oceanography, Paleolimnology and Diatom. His Climate change research incorporates elements of Glacier, Physical geography, Dominance and Arctic. His Arctic study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Glacial period and Biodiversity.

His Oceanography study combines topics in areas such as Hypolimnion, Boreal and Sediment. John P. Smol has researched Paleolimnology in several fields, including Zooplankton, Environmental change and Chlorophyll a. The Diatom study combines topics in areas such as Environmental monitoring, Nutrient, Eutrophication and Plankton.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Emerging threats and persistent conservation challenges for freshwater biodiversity (407 citations)
  • Lake diatom responses to warming: reviewing the evidence (209 citations)
  • U.S. Pacific coastal wetland resilience and vulnerability to sea-level rise (82 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Climate change

His main research concerns Ecology, Climate change, Oceanography, Ecosystem and Paleolimnology. His Ecology research includes elements of Sediment and δ15N. His studies deal with areas such as Glacier, Physical geography, Oil sands and Arctic as well as Climate change.

His Arctic research incorporates themes from Glacial period and Limnology. In his research on the topic of Oceanography, Relative species abundance and Cladocera is strongly related with Boreal. His Paleolimnology study deals with the bigger picture of Diatom.
