Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Cretaceous

Paleontology, Cretaceous, Anthropocene, Red beds and Sedimentary depositional environment are his primary areas of study. While the research belongs to areas of Paleontology, he spends his time largely on the problem of Foraminifera, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Seafloor spreading. His Cretaceous research includes themes of Climate change, Tectonics and Clastic rock.

His Anthropocene research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Global Boundary Stratotype Section and Point, Boundary, Holocene, Term and Series. Michael Wagreich interconnects Deep sea, Oceanography, Total organic carbon, Marl and Diachronous in the investigation of issues within Red beds. His research in Sedimentary rock intersects with topics in Stratigraphy and Food chain.

His most cited work include:

  • The Anthropocene is functionally and stratigraphically distinct from the Holocene (882 citations)
  • When did the Anthropocene begin? A mid-twentieth century boundary level is stratigraphically optimal (286 citations)
  • The geological cycle of plastics and their use as a stratigraphic indicator of the Anthropocene (245 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Paleontology, Cretaceous, Geochemistry, Structural basin and Sedimentary rock. His Paleontology research focuses on subjects like Foraminifera, which are linked to Magnetostratigraphy. His Cretaceous research integrates issues from Siliciclastic, Penninic, Marl and Sea level.

His Geochemistry research incorporates elements of Palynology, Oil shale and Paleogene. His Structural basin research includes elements of Fault and Tectonics. His work deals with themes such as Deep sea and Oceanography, which intersect with Red beds.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (61.16%)
  • Cretaceous (39.67%)
  • Geochemistry (17.77%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Cretaceous (39.67%)
  • Geochemistry (17.77%)
  • Paleontology (61.16%)

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

Michael Wagreich mostly deals with Cretaceous, Geochemistry, Paleontology, Structural basin and Anthropocene. The concepts of his Cretaceous study are interwoven with issues in Marl, Paleoclimatology, Sea level, Sedimentary depositional environment and Term. His work carried out in the field of Geochemistry brings together such families of science as Palynology, Prehistory and Molasse.

His study ties his expertise on Fauna together with the subject of Paleontology. His Structural basin study incorporates themes from Sedimentology, Sedimentation, Clay minerals and Mafic. His Anthropocene research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Energy consumption and Earth science.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Depositional and organic carbon-controlled regimes during the Coniacian-Santonian event: First results from the southern Tethys (Egypt) (14 citations)
  • Aquifer-eustasy as the main driver of short-term sea-level fluctuations during Cretaceous hothouse climate phases (14 citations)
  • A formal Anthropocene is compatible with but distinct from its diachronous anthropogenic counterparts: a response to W.F. Ruddiman’s ‘three flaws in defining a formal Anthropocene’: (14 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology
  • Cretaceous

Michael Wagreich mainly investigates Cretaceous, Geochemistry, Structural basin, Paleontology and Sedimentary rock. His Cretaceous study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Sedimentary depositional environment, Term, Subduction and Biostratigraphy. His work in Geochemistry addresses subjects such as Palynology, which are connected to disciplines such as Anoxic waters, Red beds, Clastic rock and Facies.

In his research on the topic of Structural basin, Glacial period, Pleistocene, Clay minerals, Compaction and Sedimentary basin analysis is strongly related with Sedimentation. His study in Sea level extends to Paleontology with its themes. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Total organic carbon, Milankovitch cycles, Isochron, Isotopes of oxygen and Zircon.
