Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Climate change

Robert B. Dunbar mainly investigates Oceanography, Coral, Seawater, Water column and Paleoclimatology. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Phytoplankton and Oceanography. The Coral study combines topics in areas such as Reef, Aragonite and Mineralogy.

His Seawater research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Coral reef and Scallop. The Water column study which covers Continental shelf that intersects with Biogenic silica, Continental shelf pump, Sedimentation and Continental margin. His Paleoclimatology research includes elements of Younger Dryas, Last Glacial Maximum, Holocene, Tropics and Northern Hemisphere.

His most cited work include:

  • The History of South American Tropical Precipitation for the Past 25,000 Years (594 citations)
  • Phytoplankton community structure and the drawdown of nutrients and CO2 in the southern ocean (543 citations)
  • New views of tropical paleoclimates from corals (396 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Oceanography, Coral, Climatology, Holocene and Paleontology. His study in Sea ice, Upwelling, Seawater, Reef and Paleoclimatology falls within the category of Oceanography. His Coral study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Sea surface temperature, Radiocarbon dating, Aragonite and Mineralogy.

His Climatology research includes themes of Subtropics and Climate change. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Sediment and Terrigenous sediment. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Paleontology, Antarctic sea ice, Antarctic ice sheet and Glacial period is strongly linked to Ice sheet.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (62.46%)
  • Coral (21.85%)
  • Climatology (13.54%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Oceanography (62.46%)
  • Coral (21.85%)
  • Biogeochemistry (4.62%)

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

Robert B. Dunbar spends much of his time researching Oceanography, Coral, Biogeochemistry, Reef and Holocene. Robert B. Dunbar has included themes like Glacial period and Biogeochemical cycle in his Oceanography study. The concepts of his Coral study are interwoven with issues in Discharge, El Niño Southern Oscillation, Sea level and Panama.

His Biogeochemistry study also includes

  • Kelp forest that connect with fields like Upwelling, Benthic zone, Hydrography and Spatial variability,
  • Dissolved organic carbon together with Sedimentary depositional environment and Isotopes of carbon,
  • Bamboo and related Oxygen minimum zone. His research integrates issues of Diel vertical migration and Coral reef in his study of Reef. Robert B. Dunbar combines subjects such as Meltwater and Productivity with his study of Holocene.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A roadmap for Antarctic and Southern Ocean science for the next two decades and beyond (102 citations)
  • Six Month In Situ High-Resolution Carbonate Chemistry and Temperature Study on a Coral Reef Flat Reveals Asynchronous pH and Temperature Anomalies (48 citations)
  • Taking the metabolic pulse of the world's coral reefs. (44 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Climate change

His primary areas of investigation include Oceanography, Reef, Coral, Palmyra Atoll and Ecology. His Biogeochemistry study in the realm of Oceanography connects with subjects such as Saturation. His Reef research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Diel vertical migration and Coral reef.

His Coral research incorporates elements of Paleothermometer, Submarine pipeline and Dolomite. His study looks at the relationship between Palmyra Atoll and topics such as Dissipation, which overlap with Wave model, Northern Hemisphere and Seismology. In his work, Ecosystem and Climate change is strongly intertwined with δ13C, which is a subfield of Wetland.
