Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oceanography
  • Ecology
  • Climate change

His primary areas of study are Oceanography, Glacial period, Interglacial, Sea ice and Sea surface temperature. Oceanography is often connected to Ocean gyre in his work. His work carried out in the field of Glacial period brings together such families of science as Climatology and Antarctic sea ice.

His Interglacial research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Westerlies, Holocene, Ice core and Paleoceanography. His study in Sea ice is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sediment and Surface water. His work in Sea surface temperature addresses issues such as Last Glacial Maximum, which are connected to fields such as Subtropical front, Oceanic basin and Climate change.

His most cited work include:

  • Constraints on the magnitude and patterns of ocean cooling at the Last Glacial Maximum (437 citations)
  • Sea-surface temperature and sea ice distribution of the Southern Ocean at the EPILOG Last Glacial Maximum—a circum-Antarctic view based on siliceous microfossil records (397 citations)
  • Diatom distribution in Southern Ocean surface sediments (Atlantic sector): Implications for paleoenvironmental reconstructions (224 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Oceanography, Sea ice, Glacial period, Paleontology and Diatom. The various areas that Rainer Gersonde examines in his Oceanography study include Climatology, Sediment and Interglacial. His Sea ice research focuses on subjects like Ice sheet, which are linked to Cryosphere and Antarctic ice sheet.

He has included themes like Ice core, Paleoceanography and Holocene in his Glacial period study. His research ties Foraminifera and Paleontology together. His Polar front research integrates issues from Biogenic silica and Water column.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (66.41%)
  • Sea ice (19.69%)
  • Glacial period (19.31%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2019)?

  • Sediment core (16.99%)
  • Geochemistry (13.90%)
  • Oceanography (66.41%)

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

Rainer Gersonde mainly investigates Sediment core, Geochemistry, Oceanography, Deglaciation and Isotopes of oxygen. His work focuses on many connections between Sediment core and other disciplines, such as Environmental chemistry, that overlap with his field of interest in Diatom. His Oceanography research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Glacial period and Sediment.

His work on Interglacial as part of general Glacial period study is frequently linked to Ocean Data View, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. Rainer Gersonde combines subjects such as Meltwater, Permafrost and Last Glacial Maximum with his study of Deglaciation. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Subarctic climate, Climatology is strongly linked to Paleoclimatology.

Between 2015 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Breakup of last glacial deep stratification in the South Pacific (29 citations)
  • Last Glacial - Holocene climate variability in the Atlantic sector of the Southern Ocean (25 citations)
  • Constraining the dating of late Quaternary marine sediment records from the Scotia Sea (Southern Ocean) (17 citations)

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

  • Oceanography
  • Ecology
  • Climate change

Rainer Gersonde focuses on Oceanography, Sediment core, Deglaciation, Glacial period and Last Glacial Maximum. While the research belongs to areas of Oceanography, Rainer Gersonde spends his time largely on the problem of Sediment, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Aeolian processes. His Deglaciation research includes themes of Meltwater, Beringia and Permafrost.

He studies Glacial period, namely Interglacial. His Interglacial research incorporates themes from Sedimentary depositional environment and Ice core. His studies deal with areas such as Stratification, Sea ice, Climate change, Abyssal zone and Upwelling as well as Last Glacial Maximum.
