Her primary areas of study are Pleistocene, Arid, Geomorphology, Quaternary and Loess. Her work investigates the relationship between Pleistocene and topics such as Mediterranean climate that intersect with problems in Physical geography. Her Arid study combines topics in areas such as Hydrology and Sedimentary rock.
Her Geomorphology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Geochemistry and Earth science. Her studies in Quaternary integrate themes in fields like Cenozoic and Holocene. She works mostly in the field of Holocene, limiting it down to concerns involving Period and, occasionally, Paleoclimatology.
Rivka Amit focuses on Geomorphology, Alluvium, Loess, Pleistocene and Quaternary. Geomorphology is frequently linked to Geochemistry in her study. She has researched Alluvium in several fields, including Arid, Desert pavement and Paleosol.
Her Loess research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Mediterranean climate, Aeolian processes, Paleoclimatology and Earth science. Her work is dedicated to discovering how Pleistocene, Holocene are connected with Physical geography and other disciplines. The study incorporates disciplines such as Fault and Fault scarp in addition to Alluvial fan.
Her primary areas of investigation include Geomorphology, Loess, Earth science, Quaternary and Mediterranean climate. Her work on Sedimentary depositional environment as part of general Geomorphology research is frequently linked to Cosmogenic nuclide, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. The various areas that Rivka Amit examines in her Loess study include Soil classification, Cold front, Front and Grain size.
While the research belongs to areas of Earth science, Rivka Amit spends her time largely on the problem of Pedogenesis, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Arid. Her study in Quaternary is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Geochemistry, Aeolian processes and Holocene. Her study on Holocene also encompasses disciplines like
Her scientific interests lie mostly in Geomorphology, Loess, Quaternary, Cliff and Cosmogenic nuclide. Her Geomorphology research incorporates elements of Lidar and Subaerial. Her Loess study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Storm, Climatology, Aeolian processes and Geochemistry, Provenance.
Her Geochemistry research includes themes of Hydrology, Mediterranean climate, Sand dune stabilization and Paleoclimatology. Rivka Amit combines subjects such as Alluvium, Geologic time scale, Holocene and Weathering with her study of Quaternary. Her Sedimentary depositional environment research includes elements of Colluvium, Silt, East Asian Monsoon and Pleistocene.
