Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Sediment
  • Ecosystem

Peter G. Appleby mostly deals with Sediment, Physical geography, Peat, Oceanography and Hydrology. His work on Paleolimnology as part of his general Sediment study is frequently connected to Constant rate, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His Physical geography research includes elements of Total organic carbon and Absolute dating.

Peter G. Appleby has researched Peat in several fields, including Lead, Chronology and Lead pollution. His study looks at the relationship between Oceanography and fields such as Deposition, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His studies in Hydrology integrate themes in fields like Sedimentary rock, Salt marsh and Altitude.

His most cited work include:

  • The calculation of lead-210 dates assuming a constant rate of supply of unsupported 210Pb to the sediment (2015 citations)
  • Chronostratigraphic Techniques in Recent Sediments (1062 citations)
  • History of Atmospheric Lead Deposition Since 12,370 14C yr BP from a Peat Bog, Jura Mountains, Switzerland (625 citations)

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

His main research concerns Sediment, Hydrology, Physical geography, Oceanography and Drainage basin. The Sediment study combines topics in areas such as Diatom, Sedimentology, Climate change and Radiometric dating. His study in Diatom is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Environmental change, Eutrophication and Plankton.

His Hydrology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Soil water, Water column and Deposition. His Physical geography research focuses on subjects like Peat, which are linked to Macrofossil. His Oceanography study deals with Pollution intersecting with Environmental chemistry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Sediment (43.96%)
  • Hydrology (24.18%)
  • Physical geography (22.34%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2021)?

  • Sediment (43.96%)
  • Physical geography (22.34%)
  • Peat (10.26%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Sediment, Physical geography, Peat, Hydrology and Drainage basin. His Sediment research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Soil water, Climate change, Arctic and Pollution. His Physical geography research incorporates themes from Volcano, Glacial period, Period, Total organic carbon and Northern Hemisphere.

His work in the fields of Peat, such as Bog, overlaps with other areas such as Carbon sequestration. His Hydrology study combines topics in areas such as Estuary, Sedimentation and Radiometric dating. Peter G. Appleby has included themes like Pyroclastic rock, Debris, Deposition, Sedimentary rock and Rainforest in his Drainage basin study.

Between 2009 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Highly anomalous accumulation rates of C and N recorded by a relic, free-floating peatland in Central Italy (90 citations)
  • Post-deposition diffusion of 137Cs in lake sediment : implications for radiocaesium dating (73 citations)
  • Sediment accumulation rates in European lakes since AD 1850: trends, reference conditions and exceedence (64 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Sediment

His scientific interests lie mostly in Hydrology, Sediment, Peat, Physical geography and Drainage basin. His Hydrology research includes elements of Natural, Feature, Sedimentation and Salt marsh. His work on Deposition as part of general Sediment study is frequently linked to Trace metal, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His research in the fields of Bog overlaps with other disciplines such as Total nitrogen. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Mire and Northern Hemisphere. The concepts of his Drainage basin study are interwoven with issues in National park, Lichen, Arctic and Surface water.
