2018 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
Fellow of the Geological Society of America
Karl W. Flessa mainly focuses on Taphonomy, Ecology, Paleoecology, Oceanography and Chione. His Taphonomy study results in a more complete grasp of Paleontology. His study in Conservation biology and Fossil Record are all subfields of Ecology.
His Paleoecology research integrates issues from Assemblage, Ecology and Habitat. His study in the field of Estuary and Sclerochronology is also linked to topics like Isotope and δ18O. He works mostly in the field of Chione, limiting it down to topics relating to Range and, in certain cases, Amino acid dating, Standard deviation and Sampling, as a part of the same area of interest.
Oceanography, Ecology, Paleontology, Hydrology and River delta are his primary areas of study. While the research belongs to areas of Oceanography, he spends his time largely on the problem of Paleoecology, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Ecology. His work in Taphonomy, Phanerozoic, Holocene, Radiocarbon dating and Range is related to Paleontology.
His study looks at the relationship between Taphonomy and fields such as Sediment, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His Hydrology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Typha domingensis and Brackish water. His River delta research includes elements of Drainage basin and Riparian zone.
His primary scientific interests are in Hydrology, River delta, Riparian zone, Ecosystem and Ecology. In the subject of general Hydrology, his work in Groundwater recharge, Environmental isotopes, Groundwater and Aquifer is often linked to Avulsion, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His River delta research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Environmental flow, Organic matter, Restoration ecology and Total organic carbon.
His Riparian zone study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Typha domingensis, Forestry and Hydrograph. His research in Ecosystem tackles topics such as Water resources which are related to areas like Track, Social value orientations and Ecosystem services. His research on Ecology often connects related areas such as Paleobiology.
Karl W. Flessa mostly deals with Ecology, Drainage basin, Restoration ecology, Environmental resource management and Ecosystem. His Ecology study often links to related topics such as Paleobiology. His Drainage basin study combines topics in areas such as Mulinia coloradoensis and Biogeochemical cycle.
Karl W. Flessa interconnects Ecosystem services and Socio-hydrology, Water resources in the investigation of issues within Restoration ecology. His Environmental resource management research includes themes of Social value orientations and Track. His work deals with themes such as River delta and Riparian zone, which intersect with Hydrograph.
