Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Oceanography
  • Ecology
  • Climate change

Kirsten Fahl spends much of her time researching Oceanography, Arctic, Sea ice, Total organic carbon and Terrigenous sediment. Kirsten Fahl integrates Oceanography and Continental margin in her research. Within one scientific family, Kirsten Fahl focuses on topics pertaining to Phytoplankton under Sea ice, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Saturated fatty acid, Biochemistry, Water column, Algae and Fatty acid.

The Total organic carbon study which covers Organic matter that intersects with Water mass, Biogenic silica, Sedimentation, Particulates and Biological pump. Her Holocene research includes themes of Ice core and Sea level. Her Arctic ice pack research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cryosphere, Ice shelf, Meltwater and Younger Dryas.

Her most cited work include:

  • Holocene cooling culminates in sea ice oscillations in Fram Strait (152 citations)
  • Towards quantitative sea ice reconstructions in the northern North Atlantic: A combined biomarker and numerical modelling approach (123 citations)
  • Sea surface temperature variability and sea‐ice extent in the subarctic northwest Pacific during the past 15,000 years (103 citations)

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

Her primary areas of study are Oceanography, Sediment core, Sea ice, Arctic and Total organic carbon. Kirsten Fahl interconnects Sediment and Terrigenous sediment in the investigation of issues within Oceanography. Kirsten Fahl has researched Terrigenous sediment in several fields, including Continental shelf and Surface water.

Her Sediment core research includes elements of Environmental chemistry, Geochemistry, Table and Hydrology. Her research in Sea ice intersects with topics in Phytoplankton, Dinosterol, Glacial period and Ice sheet. She integrates Total organic carbon with Continental margin in her research.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (53.55%)
  • Sediment core (33.01%)
  • Sea ice (19.07%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2020)?

  • Oceanography (53.55%)
  • Sediment core (33.01%)
  • Sea ice (19.07%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Oceanography, Sediment core, Sea ice, Biomarker and Holocene. Proxy, Arctic, Arctic ice pack, Hydrography and Foraminifera are the primary areas of interest in her Oceanography study. Her work in the fields of Arctic, such as Beaufort sea, overlaps with other areas such as Cover.

Her Sediment core research includes themes of Environmental chemistry, Geochemistry and Soil science. The concepts of her Sea ice study are interwoven with issues in Glacial period, Phytoplankton, Climate change and Greenland ice sheet, Ice sheet. Her work carried out in the field of Holocene brings together such families of science as Glacier, Meltwater, Continental shelf and Fjord.

Between 2017 and 2020, her most popular works were:

  • Sea ice variability in the southern Norwegian Sea during glacial Dansgaard-Oeschger climate cycles (30 citations)
  • Changes in sea ice cover and ice sheet extent at the Yermak Plateau during the last 160 ka – Reconstructions from biomarker records (23 citations)
  • Sea-ice variability in the subarctic North Pacific and adjacent Bering Sea during the past 25 ka: new insights from IP25 and Uk′37 proxy records (16 citations)

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

  • Oceanography
  • Ecology
  • Climate change

Kirsten Fahl mainly investigates Oceanography, Sea ice, Holocene, Ice sheet and Glacial period. Her study in Arctic, Proxy, Drift ice, Alkenone and Last Glacial Maximum is carried out as part of her studies in Oceanography. Her Sea ice research focuses on Arctic ice pack in particular.

The Holocene study combines topics in areas such as Glacier, Meltwater and Fjord. Her Ice sheet research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Plateau and Interglacial. Her work investigates the relationship between Glacial period and topics such as Climate change that intersect with problems in Stratification, Latitude and Ocean current.
