Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Erosion
  • Sediment

Jon Olley mainly investigates Quartz, Mineralogy, Sediment, Hydrology and Radiocarbon dating. Jon Olley combines subjects such as Sedimentary rock and Holocene with his study of Quartz. His Mineralogy research incorporates themes from Sedimentary depositional environment and Deposition.

His work carried out in the field of Sediment brings together such families of science as Soil science, Ravine, Biogeochemical cycle, Sampling and Range. Specifically, his work in Hydrology is concerned with the study of Erosion. His Radiocarbon dating research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Quaternary, Rock art and Rock shelter.

His most cited work include:

  • OPTICAL DATING OF SINGLE AND MULTIPLE GRAINS OF QUARTZ FROM JINMIUM ROCK SHELTER, NORTHERN AUSTRALIA: PART I, EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN AND STATISTICAL MODELS* (1550 citations)
  • New ages for human occupation and climatic change at Lake Mungo, Australia (542 citations)
  • PRECISION AND ACCURACY IN THE OPTICALLY STIMULATED LUMINESCENCE DATING OF SEDIMENTARY QUARTZ: A STATUS REVIEW (493 citations)

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

Jon Olley focuses on Sediment, Hydrology, Erosion, Drainage basin and Fluvial. Jon Olley has researched Sediment in several fields, including Soil water, Subsoil, Bay and Surface runoff. His Hydrology research integrates issues from Deposition and Sediment transport, Sedimentary budget.

As part of the same scientific family, Jon Olley usually focuses on Drainage basin, concentrating on Water quality and intersecting with Environmental resource management. His studies deal with areas such as Radiocarbon dating and Geomorphology as well as Holocene. Within one scientific family, Jon Olley focuses on topics pertaining to Rock art under Quartz, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Rock shelter.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Sediment (45.65%)
  • Hydrology (45.11%)
  • Erosion (27.72%)

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

  • Sediment (45.65%)
  • Hydrology (45.11%)
  • Drainage basin (25.54%)

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

Jon Olley mostly deals with Sediment, Hydrology, Drainage basin, Erosion and Water quality. His work on Sediment transport as part of general Sediment research is frequently linked to Tracing, bridging the gap between disciplines. His study in Hydrology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sampling, Estuary, Deposition and Particle size.

His research integrates issues of Bay and Tributary in his study of Drainage basin. The Erosion study combines topics in areas such as Land cover, Sedimentary budget, Subsoil and Vegetation. His Geomorphology research also works with subjects such as

  • Geochemistry that connect with fields like Quartz,
  • Optically stimulated luminescence and Mineralogy most often made with reference to Communication channel.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The challenges and opportunities of addressing particle size effects in sediment source fingerprinting: a review. (107 citations)
  • An examination of geochemical modelling approaches to tracing sediment sources incorporating distribution mixing and elemental correlations (90 citations)
  • A comparison of geological and statistical approaches to element selection for sediment fingerprinting (46 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Erosion
  • Sediment

Jon Olley mainly investigates Hydrology, Sediment, Erosion, Drainage basin and Vegetation. His Selection research extends to Hydrology, which is thematically connected. He combines subjects such as Sampling, Bay, Statistical model and Particle size with his study of Sediment.

His work carried out in the field of Bay brings together such families of science as Seagrass, Structural basin, Radiocarbon dating and Holocene. His studies examine the connections between Erosion and genetics, as well as such issues in Subsoil, with regards to Channel, Channel bank, Sedimentary budget, Soil physics and Plant litter. His Drainage basin research incorporates elements of Surface runoff, Revegetation, Wetland and Tributary.
