Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Paleontology
  • Climate change

Sander van der Kaars spends much of his time researching Glacial period, Climate change, Oceanography, Quaternary and Holocene. Sander van der Kaars has researched Climate change in several fields, including Tephra and Tropics. As part of his studies on Holocene, Sander van der Kaars often connects relevant areas like Ecology.

His research in Monsoon intersects with topics in Environmental change, Paleoclimatology and Southern Hemisphere. Sander van der Kaars combines subjects such as Rainforest and Sea level with his study of Interglacial. His Vegetation study combines topics in areas such as Radiocarbon dating and Physical geography.

His most cited work include:

  • Late Quaternary climates of the Australian arid zone: a review (224 citations)
  • History of vegetation and habitat change in the Austral-Asian region (173 citations)
  • A Late Quaternary palaeoecological record from the Banda Sea, Indonesia: patterns of vegetation, climate and biomass burning in Indonesia and northern Australia (172 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Physical geography, Glacial period, Oceanography, Vegetation and Climate change. His Physical geography study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Vegetation type, Arid, Rainforest, Last Glacial Maximum and Evergreen. The Glacial period study which covers Monsoon that intersects with Aeolian processes.

His Vegetation research incorporates themes from Palynology and Quaternary. His Interglacial study, which is part of a larger body of work in Quaternary, is frequently linked to Charcoal, bridging the gap between disciplines. The various areas that Sander van der Kaars examines in his Climate change study include Climatology and Holocene.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Physical geography (40.23%)
  • Glacial period (35.63%)
  • Oceanography (35.63%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2019)?

  • Sediment core (16.09%)
  • Physical geography (40.23%)
  • Geochemistry (11.49%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Sediment core, Physical geography, Geochemistry, Glacial period and Pleistocene. His Physical geography research includes elements of Paleoclimatology, Vegetation type, Wet season and Rainforest, Tropical rainforest. The Geochemistry study combines topics in areas such as Palynology, Pollen and Plateau.

Sander van der Kaars has included themes like Ecology, Climate change and Sporormiella in his Glacial period study. The concepts of his Pleistocene study are interwoven with issues in Archaeological record and Rock shelter. His Archaeological record study which covers Radiocarbon dating that intersects with Holocene.

Between 2016 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Humans rather than climate the primary cause of Pleistocene megafaunal extinction in Australia. (48 citations)
  • Humans rather than climate the primary cause of Pleistocene megafaunal extinction in Australia. (48 citations)
  • A reassessment of the early archaeological record at Leang Burung 2, a Late Pleistocene rock-shelter site on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi (44 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Paleontology

His scientific interests lie mostly in Megafauna, Pleistocene, Biological dispersal, Glacial period and Sporormiella. The various areas that Sander van der Kaars examines in his Megafauna study include Context, Radiocarbon dating, Archaeological record and Holocene. His work deals with themes such as Paleoanthropology and Rock shelter, which intersect with Pleistocene.

Sander van der Kaars integrates several fields in his works, including Biological dispersal, Oceanography, Sea level, Sea surface temperature and Marine isotope stage. His Sporormiella research incorporates themes from Ecology, Environmental change and Climate change.
