Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Oceanography
  • Ecology
  • Paleontology

Her primary scientific interests are in Oceanography, Holocene, Ice core, Tephrochronology and Glacial period. Benthic zone, Deglaciation, Water mass, Stadial and Sea surface temperature are the core of her Oceanography study. Karen Luise Knudsen combines subjects such as Diatom, Tephra and Sea ice with her study of Holocene.

Her study in Ice core is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Allerød oscillation, Paleontology and Last Glacial Maximum. Her research in the fields of Pleistocene, Stratotype, Stratigraphy and Bølling-Allerød overlaps with other disciplines such as Event. Her Glacial period study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Arctic ice pack, Chronostratigraphy and Iceberg, Ice sheet.

Her most cited work include:

  • An event stratigraphy for the Last Termination in the North Atlantic region based on the Greenland ice-core record: a proposal by the INTIMATE group (750 citations)
  • Last Interglacial Climates (282 citations)
  • Isotopic &events' in the GRIP ice core: a stratotype for the Late Pleistocene (276 citations)

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

Karen Luise Knudsen mostly deals with Oceanography, Holocene, Foraminifera, Paleontology and Interglacial. Benthic zone, Water mass, Diatom, Sea ice and Arctic are among the areas of Oceanography where the researcher is concentrating her efforts. Her Holocene study also includes

  • Radiocarbon dating which connect with Stadial,
  • North Atlantic oscillation together with Sea surface temperature.

Her research in Foraminifera intersects with topics in Boreal, Salinity, Bottom water, Fauna and Fjord. Her Interglacial study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Ecological succession and Sea level. Her work deals with themes such as Glacier, Chronostratigraphy and Ice core, which intersect with Glacial period.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (73.72%)
  • Holocene (32.05%)
  • Foraminifera (30.77%)

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

  • Oceanography (73.72%)
  • Holocene (32.05%)
  • Foraminifera (30.77%)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Oceanography, Holocene, Foraminifera, Benthic zone and Arctic. Karen Luise Knudsen performs multidisciplinary study in the fields of Oceanography and Indicator species via her papers. As a member of one scientific family, Karen Luise Knudsen mostly works in the field of Holocene, focusing on Ocean current and, on occasion, Allerød oscillation, Bølling-Allerød, Younger Dryas and Polar front.

Her Foraminifera research incorporates elements of Evolutionary biology, Nomenclature and Morphometrics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Sediment core, Diagenesis and Anoxic waters in addition to Benthic zone. Karen Luise Knudsen has included themes like Glacier, Early Pleistocene, Calcareous and Subarctic climate in her Arctic study.

Between 2014 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Solar forcing of Holocene summer sea-surface temperatures in the northern North Atlantic (61 citations)
  • The genetic diversity, phylogeography and morphology of Elphidiidae (Foraminifera) in the Northeast Atlantic (44 citations)
  • Solar forcing as an important trigger for West Greenland sea-ice variability over the last millennium (22 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Paleontology

Oceanography, Holocene, Foraminifera, Sea ice and Ocean current are her primary areas of study. Her Oceanography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Climatology and Northern Hemisphere. Her Neoglaciation study, which is part of a larger body of work in Holocene, is frequently linked to Intertropical Convergence Zone, East Asian Monsoon and Indicator species, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Evolutionary biology, Morphometrics and Biogeography. The various areas that Karen Luise Knudsen examines in her Sea ice study include Allerød oscillation, Meltwater, Orbital forcing and Polar front. The Ocean current study combines topics in areas such as Proxy, Climate change, Atlantic multidecadal oscillation, Solar variation and Tephra.
