Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Paleontology

John W. Murray mostly deals with Oceanography, Benthic zone, Ecology, Foraminifera and Ecology. His work carried out in the field of Oceanography brings together such families of science as Glacial period, Paleontology and Huronian glaciation. His Benthic zone study combines topics in areas such as Abundance, Water circulation, Sediment and Paleoecology.

His Abundance research incorporates themes from Cibicides and Textularia. His research brings together the fields of Zoology and Ecology. His Foraminifera research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Organic matter, Staining, Deep sea and Predation.

His most cited work include:

  • Ecology and applications of benthic foraminifera (1076 citations)
  • Ecology and palaeoecology of benthic foraminifera (954 citations)
  • Oxygen isotope calibration of the onset of ice-rafting and history of glaciation in the North Atlantic region (862 citations)

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

John W. Murray focuses on Oceanography, Foraminifera, Benthic zone, Ecology and Paleontology. His work is dedicated to discovering how Oceanography, Sediment are connected with Sedimentary depositional environment and other disciplines. Sea level is closely connected to Estuary in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Foraminifera.

His Benthic zone study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Abundance, Organic matter, Taphonomy, Fjord and Paleoecology. His study in Intertidal zone, Ecology and Relative species abundance are all subfields of Ecology. John W. Murray works mostly in the field of Intertidal zone, limiting it down to topics relating to Species diversity and, in certain cases, Standing crop, as a part of the same area of interest.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (48.51%)
  • Foraminifera (38.81%)
  • Benthic zone (29.10%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2005-2018)?

  • Foraminifera (38.81%)
  • Oceanography (48.51%)
  • Benthic zone (29.10%)

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

John W. Murray spends much of his time researching Foraminifera, Oceanography, Benthic zone, Ecology and Deep sea. The concepts of his Foraminifera study are interwoven with issues in Species richness, Biological dispersal and Relative species abundance. The Oceanography study combines topics in areas such as Sedimentary rock and Paleontology.

His Benthic zone research includes elements of Biodiversity, Continental shelf, Sediment, Standing crop and Fjord. Many of his research projects under Ecology are closely connected to Curiosity and Hobby with Curiosity and Hobby, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His Deep sea research incorporates elements of Range and Species diversity.

Between 2005 and 2018, his most popular works were:

  • Ecology and applications of benthic foraminifera (1076 citations)
  • Ice shelf history from petrographic and foraminiferal evidence, Northeast Antarctic Peninsula (70 citations)
  • The roles of elevation and salinity as primary controls on living foraminiferal distributions: Cowpen Marsh, Tees Estuary, UK (69 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Paleontology

His main research concerns Ecology, Abundance, Benthic zone, Oceanography and Foraminifera. His Ecology and Intertidal zone and Salt marsh investigations all form part of his Ecology research activities. His work investigates the relationship between Abundance and topics such as Deep sea that intersect with problems in Biodiversity, Geographic distribution, Geostrophic current, Range and Fjord.

His Oceanography study typically links adjacent topics like Paleontology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Iceberg, Antarctic sea ice, Ice stream and Ice core. His Cibicides and Textularia study, which is part of a larger body of work in Foraminifera, is frequently linked to Environmental change, bridging the gap between disciplines.
