Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Archaeology
  • Paleontology
  • Ecology

Archaeology, Mineralogy, Quartz, Paleontology and Radiocarbon dating are his primary areas of study. In the field of Archaeology, his study on Thermoluminescence dating, Rock shelter and Megafauna overlaps with subjects such as Context. His Mineralogy study incorporates themes from Sediment, Optically stimulated luminescence and Deposition.

His Quartz study combines topics in areas such as Thermoluminescence and Northern australia. His study looks at the relationship between Paleontology and fields such as Cave, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His work carried out in the field of Radiocarbon dating brings together such families of science as Quaternary, Chronology and Holocene.

His most cited work include:

  • OPTICAL DATING OF SINGLE AND MULTIPLE GRAINS OF QUARTZ FROM JINMIUM ROCK SHELTER, NORTHERN AUSTRALIA: PART I, EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN AND STATISTICAL MODELS* (1550 citations)
  • New ages for human occupation and climatic change at Lake Mungo, Australia (542 citations)
  • New Ages for the Last Australian Megafauna: Continent-Wide Extinction About 46,000 Years Ago (411 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Archaeology, Pleistocene, Cave, Paleontology and Radiocarbon dating. His study in Middle Stone Age, Thermoluminescence dating, Homo sapiens, Prehistory and Optical dating is carried out as part of his studies in Archaeology. The concepts of his Optical dating study are interwoven with issues in Geochemistry, Northern australia and Optically stimulated luminescence.

His research investigates the connection with Pleistocene and areas like Ecology which intersect with concerns in Extinction. His Cave study deals with Sedimentary rock intersecting with Ancient DNA. His biological study deals with issues like Quartz, which deal with fields such as Sediment.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Archaeology (49.43%)
  • Pleistocene (27.92%)
  • Cave (29.06%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Archaeology (49.43%)
  • Cave (29.06%)
  • Pleistocene (27.92%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Archaeology, Cave, Pleistocene, Stone tool and Mineralogy. His Archaeology study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Biological dispersal. His Cave study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Range, Guano, Sedimentary rock, Geoarchaeology and Chronology.

Richard G. Roberts has included themes like Glacier, Oceanography, Starvation and Last Glacial Maximum in his Pleistocene study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Prehistory and Raman spectroscopy. His study in Mineralogy is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Quartz and Feldspar.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Human occupation of northern India spans the Toba super-eruption ~74,000 years ago (110 citations)
  • Human occupation of northern India spans the Toba super-eruption ~74,000 years ago (110 citations)
  • Age estimates for hominin fossils and the onset of the Upper Palaeolithic at Denisova Cave (62 citations)

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

  • Archaeology
  • Ecology
  • Paleontology

Richard G. Roberts mainly investigates Archaeology, Cave, Pleistocene, Chronology and Radiocarbon dating. Archaeology is closely attributed to Biological dispersal in his research. His Biological dispersal research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Assemblage, Stone tool and Foothills.

His Cave research integrates issues from Range and Neanderthal. In his research, he performs multidisciplinary study on Pleistocene and Context. Richard G. Roberts undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Radiocarbon dating and Hominidae through his works.
