Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oceanography
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology

Sebastian Krastel mainly focuses on Seafloor spreading, Geomorphology, Paleontology, Sediment and Seismology. Sebastian Krastel combines subjects such as Pore water pressure and Brazil–Malvinas Confluence with his study of Geomorphology. His research integrates issues of Drilling and Scientific drilling in his study of Paleontology.

His Sediment study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Geochemistry, Fluvial and Continental margin. His Seismology study which covers Bathymetry that intersects with Hydrology, Dispersion, Grid and Submarine. As part of the same scientific family, Sebastian Krastel usually focuses on Volcano, concentrating on Last Glacial Maximum and intersecting with Quaternary.

His most cited work include:

  • ‘PALEOVAN’, International Continental Scientific Drilling Program (ICDP): site survey results and perspectives (147 citations)
  • Submarine landslides around the Canary Islands (143 citations)
  • Mud volcanoes and gas hydrates in the Black Sea: new data from Dvurechenskii and Odessa mud volcanoes (105 citations)

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

Sebastian Krastel spends much of his time researching Seismology, Geomorphology, Paleontology, Oceanography and Submarine landslide. His Seismology research incorporates elements of Seafloor spreading, Submarine pipeline and Submarine. His Geomorphology research focuses on Continental margin and how it connects with Contourite.

Sedimentary rock, Volcano, Structural basin, Basement and Quaternary are the primary areas of interest in his Paleontology study. His Oceanography study incorporates themes from Glacial period and Drilling. His Submarine landslide research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Continental shelf, Bathymetry and Slope stability.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Seismology (24.28%)
  • Geomorphology (22.04%)
  • Paleontology (18.53%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Seismology (24.28%)
  • Paleontology (18.53%)
  • Submarine landslide (14.70%)

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

Sebastian Krastel mainly investigates Seismology, Paleontology, Submarine landslide, Landslide and Submarine pipeline. His Seismology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Slip, Seafloor spreading and Submarine. His work investigates the relationship between Submarine and topics such as Geomorphology that intersect with problems in Gravity.

In the field of Paleontology, his study on Glacial period overlaps with subjects such as Ice-sheet dynamics. Sebastian Krastel combines subjects such as Headwall, Slope stability, Canyon and Turbidity current with his study of Submarine landslide. His studies in Landslide integrate themes in fields like Scale, Fault scarp, Petrology and Continental margin.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Mediterranean winter rainfall in phase with African monsoons during the past 1.36 million years (40 citations)
  • A consistent global approach for the morphometric characterization of subaqueous landslides (34 citations)
  • Submarine slope failures due to pipe structure formation. (31 citations)

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

  • Oceanography
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology

His primary areas of investigation include Landslide, Paleontology, Seismology, Submarine pipeline and Submarine landslide. His Landslide research incorporates themes from Hikurangi Margin, Fault scarp, Petrology and Continental margin. His studies deal with areas such as Sedimentary rock and Debris as well as Continental margin.

Many of his research projects under Paleontology are closely connected to Ice-sheet dynamics and Drawdown with Ice-sheet dynamics and Drawdown, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. As part of one scientific family, Sebastian Krastel deals mainly with the area of Submarine pipeline, narrowing it down to issues related to the Volcano, and often Seafloor spreading. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Submarine landslide, concentrating on Slope stability and frequently concerns with Permeability, Bottom water, Gas hydrate stability zone and Overpressure.
