Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Oceanography

Scott L. Nichol mainly focuses on Oceanography, Reef, Estuary, Sediment and Holocene. His work carried out in the field of Oceanography brings together such families of science as Identification, Perspective and Earth science. His Reef research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Coral reef, Shore and Sea level.

His Estuary research integrates issues from Channel, Pollutant and Fluvial. His Fluvial study incorporates themes from Species richness, Habitat and Progradation. His study looks at the relationship between Holocene and topics such as Foraminifera, which overlap with Palynology, Cenozoic, Quaternary, Swamp and Subsidence.

His most cited work include:

  • Structure and Function of South-east Australian Estuaries (534 citations)
  • Progress in palaeotsunami research (187 citations)
  • On the use of abiotic surrogates to describe marine benthic biodiversity (180 citations)

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

Scott L. Nichol mainly investigates Oceanography, Reef, Ecology, Seabed and Habitat. Many of his studies on Oceanography apply to Sediment as well. His Reef research incorporates themes from Fishing, Coral reef, Temperate climate and Seafloor spreading.

His work deals with themes such as Continental shelf, Biodiversity, Submarine pipeline and Environmental resource management, which intersect with Habitat. He works mostly in the field of Holocene, limiting it down to concerns involving Palynology and, occasionally, Tephra. Scott L. Nichol has researched Estuary in several fields, including Sedimentary depositional environment, Aggradation, Fluvial and Facies.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (46.95%)
  • Reef (14.63%)
  • Ecology (14.02%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2020)?

  • Oceanography (46.95%)
  • Marine park (3.66%)
  • Benthic zone (11.59%)

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

His main research concerns Oceanography, Marine park, Benthic zone, Habitat and Archaeology. His Oceanography research incorporates elements of Period and Siliciclastic. His Benthic zone research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Biogeochemical cycle, Water column, Biogeochemistry and Pockmark.

His research integrates issues of Reef, Abyssal zone and Biodiversity in his study of Habitat. Scott L. Nichol combines subjects such as Polychaete, Species richness and Shoal with his study of Biodiversity. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Backscatter and Sonar.

Between 2016 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Palaeoshorelines on the Australian continental shelf: Morphology, sea-level relationship and applications to environmental management and archaeology (31 citations)
  • Application of random forest, generalised linear model and their hybrid methods with geostatistical techniques to count data (22 citations)
  • Improved treatment of non-stationary conditions and uncertainties in probabilistic models of storm wave climate (13 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Oceanography

Scott L. Nichol spends much of his time researching Oceanography, Benthic zone, Sediment, Backscatter and Seabed. His is involved in several facets of Oceanography study, as is seen by his studies on Submarine pipeline, Bathymetry, Pelagic zone, Submarine canyon and Sea level. The concepts of his Benthic zone study are interwoven with issues in Habitat, Pockmark, Continental margin, Canyon and Biogeochemistry.

Sediment is the topic of his studies on Geomorphology and Paleontology. In his study, Period, Siliciclastic, Environmental change, Quaternary and Shore is strongly linked to Continental shelf, which falls under the umbrella field of Paleontology. His Backscatter study combines topics in areas such as Substrate, Offshore geotechnical engineering, Sonar, Ground truth and Waves and shallow water.
