Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • Oceanography
  • Global warming

His primary areas of investigation include Ice core, Climatology, Climate change, Oceanography and Paleoclimatology. Paul Andrew Mayewski has included themes like Glacial period, Stadial, Ice sheet, Snow and Physical geography in his Ice core study. His Physical geography research includes elements of Younger Dryas, Holocene and Groenlandia.

His work carried out in the field of Climatology brings together such families of science as Glacier and Precipitation. He combines subjects such as Biosphere, Archaeology and Land use with his study of Climate change. His work on Future sea level, Ice cap climate and Antarctic climate as part of general Oceanography study is frequently linked to Terrestrial biota, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His most cited work include:

  • Holocene climate variability (1703 citations)
  • Holocene climatic instability: A prominent, widespread event 8200 yr ago (1454 citations)
  • Abrupt increase in Greenland snow accumulation at the end of the Younger Dryas event (1000 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ice core, Climatology, Oceanography, Climate change and Physical geography. The concepts of his Ice core study are interwoven with issues in Atmospheric circulation, Atmospheric sciences, Glacier, Snow and Ice sheet. His work focuses on many connections between Climatology and other disciplines, such as Paleoclimatology, that overlap with his field of interest in Greenland Ice Sheet Project.

His Oceanography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Glacial period and Southern Hemisphere. The study incorporates disciplines such as Glaciology, Earth science and Holocene in addition to Climate change. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Younger Dryas and Groenlandia.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ice core (52.85%)
  • Climatology (37.21%)
  • Oceanography (33.62%)

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

  • Ice core (52.85%)
  • Physical geography (19.45%)
  • Climatology (37.21%)

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

Paul Andrew Mayewski focuses on Ice core, Physical geography, Climatology, Climate change and Glacier. His Ice core study introduces a deeper knowledge of Oceanography. His Physical geography study also includes

  • Holocene most often made with reference to Global change,
  • Younger Dryas which is related to area like Biomass burning.

Glacier mass balance is closely connected to Precipitation in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Climatology. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Environmental resource management and Climate change. His Glacier research incorporates elements of Radiocarbon dating, Paleoclimatology, Elevation, Westerlies and Meridional flow.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Importance and vulnerability of the world's water towers (152 citations)
  • Next-generation ice core technology reveals true minimum natural levels of lead (Pb) in the atmosphere: Insights from the Black Death (33 citations)
  • Extraordinary Biomass-Burning Episode and Impact Winter Triggered by the Younger Dryas Cosmic Impact ∼12,800 Years Ago. 2. Lake, Marine, and Terrestrial Sediments (28 citations)

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

  • Climate change
  • Global warming
  • Carbon dioxide

Paul Andrew Mayewski mainly focuses on Ice core, Climatology, Climate change, Oceanography and Glacier. His studies in Ice core integrate themes in fields like Snow, Atmospheric sciences, Earth science and Holocene. His Climatology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Geopotential height and Precipitation.

His work deals with themes such as Elevation, Weather and climate and Upwelling, which intersect with Climate change. His Oceanography research includes themes of Aeolian processes and Deposition. Glacier is a subfield of Physical geography that Paul Andrew Mayewski studies.
