Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Paleontology
  • Sedimentary rock

His scientific interests lie mostly in Paleontology, Paleoclimatology, Permian, Extinction event and Weathering. Paleontology is closely attributed to Seasonality in his research. The concepts of his Paleoclimatology study are interwoven with issues in Geologic record, Soil water, Ice sheet, Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere and Holocene climatic optimum.

His Permian study deals with Biodiversity intersecting with Greenhouse effect. His Weathering research incorporates themes from Earth science, Provenance, Pedogenesis and Unconformity. His Earth science study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Neogene, Precambrian, Soil chemistry and Proterozoic.

His most cited work include:

  • Quantitative paleoenvironmental and paleoclimatic reconstruction using paleosols (515 citations)
  • Geochemical Climofunctions from North American Soils and Application to Paleosols across the Eocene‐Oligocene Boundary in Oregon (308 citations)
  • Precambrian paleosols and atmospheric CO2 levels (198 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Paleontology, Paleoclimatology, Geochemistry, Earth science and Weathering. His study on Paleontology is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Extinction event. He has included themes like Isotopes of carbon, Atmospheric sciences, Pedogenesis and Holocene climatic optimum in his Paleoclimatology study.

His study in the fields of Diagenesis under the domain of Geochemistry overlaps with other disciplines such as Biogeosciences. His Earth science research incorporates elements of Phanerozoic, Terrestrial ecosystem and Proterozoic. His Weathering research also works with subjects such as

  • Basalt which is related to area like Rift,
  • Provenance which is related to area like Sedimentary depositional environment and Geologic record.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (39.67%)
  • Paleoclimatology (21.49%)
  • Geochemistry (16.53%)

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

  • Geochemistry (16.53%)
  • Paleoclimatology (21.49%)
  • Earth science (14.05%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Geochemistry, Paleoclimatology, Earth science, Weathering and Biogeochemistry. In the field of Geochemistry, his study on Geochronology overlaps with subjects such as Metagenomics, Biogeosciences and Bioavailability. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Paleontology, Soil carbon and Atmospheric sciences.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Forest ecology and Paleoceanography in addition to Earth science. His work deals with themes such as Biogeochemical cycle, Terrestrial ecosystem, Soil fertility and Archean, which intersect with Weathering. His Biogeochemistry course of study focuses on Isotopes of carbon and Metasequoia, Herbaceous plant, Water-use efficiency, Genus and Ecosystem.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Molybdenum speciation as a paleo-redox proxy: A case study from Late Cretaceous Western Interior Seaway black shales (11 citations)
  • Late Miocene rise and fall of C4 grasses in the western United States linked to aridification and uplift (11 citations)
  • Rapid response to anthropogenic climate change by Thuja occidentalis: implications for past climate reconstructions and future climate predictions. (7 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Paleontology
  • Sedimentary rock

Nathan D. Sheldon mainly focuses on Biogeochemical cycle, Atmospheric sciences, Paleoclimatology, Isotopes of carbon and Late Miocene. His Biogeochemical cycle research integrates issues from Archean, Terrestrial ecosystem, Earth science and Weathering. Nathan D. Sheldon has researched Atmospheric sciences in several fields, including Soil water, Pedogenesis, Biosphere and Seasonality.

His Paleoclimatology study combines topics in areas such as Global warming, Atmospheric carbon cycle, Carbon dioxide and Biogeochemistry. His study in Isotopes of carbon is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Metasequoia, Herbaceous plant, Water-use efficiency, Ecosystem and Genus. His Late Miocene study deals with the bigger picture of Paleontology.
