Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oceanography
  • Paleontology
  • Sedimentary rock

Robert D Larter mostly deals with Ice sheet, Ice shelf, Oceanography, Ice stream and Continental shelf. His Ice sheet research includes themes of Paleontology, Last Glacial Maximum and Ice-sheet model. His work focuses on many connections between Ice shelf and other disciplines, such as Iceberg, that overlap with his field of interest in Shelf ice, Glacier morphology and Physical geography.

Robert D Larter combines subjects such as Tectonics, Continental margin and Peninsula with his study of Oceanography. His work deals with themes such as Deglaciation, Antarctic sea ice, Antarctic ice sheet and Geomorphology, which intersect with Ice stream. In his study, Cenozoic, Benthic zone and Ecology is strongly linked to Glacial period, which falls under the umbrella field of Continental shelf.

His most cited work include:

  • On the origin of Antarctic marine benthic community structure. (209 citations)
  • Effects of ridge crest-trench interaction on Antarctic-Phoenix Spreading: Forces on a young subducting plate (189 citations)
  • The Discovery of New Deep-Sea Hydrothermal Vent Communities in the Southern Ocean and Implications for Biogeography (178 citations)

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

Sediment core, Oceanography, Ice sheet, Geochemistry and Antarctic ice sheet are his primary areas of study. His research in Sediment core intersects with topics in Composition, Hydrology, Water content, Shear strength and Mineralogy. His Oceanography study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Glacier and Peninsula.

His work investigates the relationship between Ice sheet and topics such as Ice shelf that intersect with problems in Iceberg. His Antarctic ice sheet research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Holocene and Ice-sheet model. Robert D Larter interconnects Sedimentary rock and Continental margin in the investigation of issues within Continental shelf.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Sediment core (43.20%)
  • Oceanography (29.43%)
  • Ice sheet (21.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Oceanography (29.43%)
  • Paleontology (12.74%)
  • Geochemistry (20.83%)

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

Robert D Larter mainly investigates Oceanography, Paleontology, Geochemistry, Glacial period and Glacier. His work on Cryosphere as part of general Oceanography study is frequently connected to Warm water, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His Paleontology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Continental shelf, Seabed and Ice sheet.

His Ice sheet study combines topics in areas such as Last Glacial Maximum and Holocene. His study on Glacial period is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Antarctic ice sheet. His study looks at the relationship between Glacier and topics such as Ice shelf, which overlap with Bathymetry, Ice stream, Deglaciation and Lead.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • West Antarctic Ice Sheet retreat driven by Holocene warm water incursions (49 citations)
  • Evidence of marine ice-cliff instability in Pine Island Bay from iceberg-keel plough marks (27 citations)
  • The periodic topography of ice stream beds: Insights from the Fourier spectra of mega‐scale glacial lineations (20 citations)

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

  • Oceanography
  • Glacier
  • Paleontology

His main research concerns Paleontology, Glacier, Oceanography, Ice shelf and Ice sheet. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Ice-sheet dynamics, Continental shelf, Core and Arctic. His Ice shelf study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Antarctic ice sheet, Ice stream and Bathymetry.

Robert D Larter has included themes like Deglaciation and Physical geography in his Antarctic ice sheet study. His studies in Ice stream integrate themes in fields like Glacial period, Landform, Geomorphology and Lead. His research integrates issues of Quaternary, Interglacial, Tunnel valley and Continental margin in his study of Ice sheet.
