Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Paleontology
  • Oceanography

Martin Melles mainly investigates Oceanography, Holocene, Glacial period, Paleoclimatology and Arctic. His research in Holocene intersects with topics in Ecology and Pleistocene. His Glacial period study incorporates themes from Sediment and Radiative forcing.

The various areas that Martin Melles examines in his Paleoclimatology study include Intertropical Convergence Zone, Geochemistry, Monsoon and Water column. His Arctic study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Neogene, Alluvial fan and Drilling, Scientific drilling. His work deals with themes such as Physical geography and Vegetation, which intersect with Younger Dryas.

His most cited work include:

  • Maximum extent of the Eurasian ice sheets in the Barents and Kara Sea region during the Weichselian (296 citations)
  • 2.8 Million Years of Arctic Climate Change from Lake El’gygytgyn, NE Russia (281 citations)
  • Antarctic Glacial History Since the Last Glacial Maximum: An Overview of the Record on Land (187 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Oceanography, Sediment, Holocene, Physical geography and Geochemistry. His study in Arctic, Ice sheet, Paleoclimatology, East antarctica and Climate change is done as part of Oceanography. His Deposition study in the realm of Sediment interacts with subjects such as Mass movement.

His studies deal with areas such as Glacial period, Radiocarbon dating and Pleistocene as well as Holocene. Martin Melles has researched Physical geography in several fields, including Climatology, Pollen, Peninsula, Interglacial and Transect. His Geochemistry study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Geomorphology and Sediment core.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (31.23%)
  • Sediment (20.82%)
  • Holocene (20.55%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Physical geography (18.63%)
  • Holocene (20.55%)
  • Arctic (12.88%)

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

Martin Melles focuses on Physical geography, Holocene, Arctic, Geochemistry and Paleontology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Palynology, Glacial period, Climate change and Ice sheet in addition to Holocene. His Arctic research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Marine isotope stage, Pleistocene and Far East.

His Geochemistry research includes elements of Sedimentation, Sediment and Sediment core. His Multi proxy research is within the category of Oceanography. His Oceanography research incorporates elements of Mire and Water level.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Mediterranean winter rainfall in phase with African monsoons during the past 1.36 million years (40 citations)
  • Climatic fluctuations in the hyperarid core of the Atacama Desert during the past 215 ka (16 citations)
  • Deglaciation history of Lake Ladoga (northwestern Russia) based on varved sediments (12 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Paleontology
  • Climate change

Martin Melles spends much of his time researching Physical geography, Holocene, Interglacial, Ice sheet and Arctic. His Physical geography research incorporates themes from Glacial period, Pollen, Paleoclimatology and Sediment core. His Glacial period research integrates issues from Climate history and Quaternary.

The concepts of his Holocene study are interwoven with issues in Palynology and Climate change. His research on Ice sheet concerns the broader Oceanography. His study in Arctic is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Marine isotope stage, Sedimentology and Trough.
