Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • Sediment
  • Paleontology

His primary areas of study are Holocene, Fluvial, Oceanography, Ice sheet and Geomorphology. His studies deal with areas such as Peat, Coastal erosion, Flood myth and Subsidence as well as Holocene. His study with Fluvial involves better knowledge in Paleontology.

His Paleontology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Climate change and Earth science. His Ice core and Climate science study in the realm of Oceanography interacts with subjects such as Greenland Ice Sheet Project, Greenland ice core project and Ice cap climate. He interconnects Arctic ice pack, Ice age, Forebulge and Sea level in the investigation of issues within Ice sheet.

His most cited work include:

  • Fluvial responses to climate and sea‐level change: a review and look forward (866 citations)
  • Mississippi Delta subsidence primarily caused by compaction of Holocene strata (320 citations)
  • Deciphering Holocene sea-level history on the U.S. Gulf Coast: A high-resolution record from the Mississippi Delta (152 citations)

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

His main research concerns Holocene, Oceanography, Sea level, Geomorphology and Sediment. Holocene is a subfield of Paleontology that Torbjörn E. Törnqvist tackles. His work on Sea level rise and Continental shelf as part of general Oceanography research is frequently linked to Mississippi delta, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His Post-glacial rebound study in the realm of Sea level interacts with subjects such as Event. His work deals with themes such as Sedimentary rock and Stratigraphy, which intersect with Geomorphology. His work investigates the relationship between Sediment and topics such as Hydrology that intersect with problems in Crevasse splay.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Holocene (31.36%)
  • Oceanography (28.81%)
  • Sea level (20.34%)

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

  • Sediment (16.95%)
  • Hydrology (10.17%)
  • Physical geography (16.10%)

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

Torbjörn E. Törnqvist spends much of his time researching Sediment, Hydrology, Physical geography, River delta and Geomorphology. As a member of one scientific family, Torbjörn E. Törnqvist mostly works in the field of Sediment, focusing on Flooding and, on occasion, Subsidence, Post-glacial rebound, Extraction, Tectonics and Lead. His Hydrology study incorporates themes from Radiocarbon dating and Levee.

The Physical geography study combines topics in areas such as Climate change, Subsidence, Holocene and Progradation. His Holocene research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Shore, Sea level, Ice sheet, Landform and Coastal restoration. His Sea level study is associated with Oceanography.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Anatomy of Mississippi Delta growth and its implications for coastal restoration. (48 citations)
  • Global-scale human impact on delta morphology has led to net land area gain (46 citations)
  • Future Change to Tide-Influenced Deltas (25 citations)

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

  • Climate change
  • Sediment
  • Paleontology

His primary scientific interests are in Sediment, Physical geography, River delta, Climate change and Holocene. His Sediment research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Elevation, Tide gauge, Flooding and Subsidence. His Physical geography research integrates issues from Spatial ecology, Mediterranean climate, Last Glacial Maximum and Ice sheet.

His River delta research incorporates Hydrology, Geomorphology, Alluvium, Estuary and Fluvial. Torbjörn E. Törnqvist combines subjects such as Dominance, Sea level and Physical oceanography with his study of Climate change. Torbjörn E. Törnqvist merges many fields, such as Holocene and Mississippi delta, in his writings.
