Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Paleontology
  • Agriculture

Larry Benson mainly investigates Structural basin, Oceanography, Glacial period, Physical geography and Sill. His Structural basin research incorporates themes from Hydrology, Climate change and Holocene. Larry Benson interconnects Canyon and Before Present in the investigation of issues within Climate change.

Larry Benson specializes in Oceanography, namely Younger Dryas. Larry Benson works mostly in the field of Glacial period, limiting it down to concerns involving Pleistocene and, occasionally, Cenozoic, Paleoclimatology, Milankovitch cycles and Sediment. His Physical geography study incorporates themes from Monsoon, Atmospheric circulation, Climatology and Dendroclimatology.

His most cited work include:

  • Chronology of expansion and contraction of four Great Basin lake systems during the past 35,000 years (294 citations)
  • Holocene multidecadal and multicentennial droughts affecting Northern California and Nevada (243 citations)
  • Chronology for fluctuations in late Pleistocene Sierra Nevada glaciers and lakes (207 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Structural basin, Oceanography, Archaeology, Hydrology and Physical geography. His work deals with themes such as Climate change, Holocene and Ice sheet, which intersect with Structural basin. His work in Oceanography tackles topics such as Quaternary which are related to areas like Paleoclimatology.

The various areas that Larry Benson examines in his Archaeology study include Soil water, Canyon and Zea mays. Larry Benson focuses mostly in the field of Hydrology, narrowing it down to topics relating to Pyramid and, in certain cases, Geochemistry. As part of one scientific family, Larry Benson deals mainly with the area of Physical geography, narrowing it down to issues related to the Glacial period, and often Pleistocene, Sediment and Total organic carbon.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Structural basin (35.48%)
  • Oceanography (21.51%)
  • Archaeology (19.35%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Structural basin (35.48%)
  • Canyon (15.05%)
  • Lake basin (4.30%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Structural basin, Canyon, Lake basin, Hydrology and Pyramid. He has researched Structural basin in several fields, including Climatology, Forcing and Paleoclimatology. His studies in Canyon integrate themes in fields like Flooding, Mammal, Agricultural productivity and Prehistory, Archaeology.

His research in Archaeology intersects with topics in Arid and Growing season. His studies deal with areas such as Geochemistry and Oceanography as well as Lake basin. His Pyramid research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Paleomagnetism and Radiocarbon dating.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A full-vector paleomagnetic secular variation record (PSV) from Pyramid Lake (Nevada) from 47–17 ka: Evidence for the successive Mono Lake and Laschamp Excursions (14 citations)
  • The Chuska Slope as an agricultural alternative to Chaco Canyon: A rebuttal of Tankersley et al. (2016) (7 citations)
  • Prehistoric Chaco Canyon, New Mexico: Residential population implications of limited agricultural and mammal productivity (2 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Paleontology
  • Agriculture

Larry Benson mostly deals with Canyon, Prehistory, Flooding, Mammal and Snowmelt. His Prehistory research includes themes of Structural basin, Agricultural productivity and Growing season. His Flooding research integrates issues from Arid, Agriculture and Agroforestry.

His Snowmelt study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Hydrology, Surface water, Soil water and Salinity.
