Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Paleontology
  • Oceanography

Toshio Nakamura mainly focuses on Holocene, Oceanography, Glacial period, Radiocarbon dating and Paleontology. His research in Holocene intersects with topics in East Asian Monsoon, Monsoon, Total organic carbon, Pleistocene and Sediment. His research in East Asian Monsoon tackles topics such as Climate change which are related to areas like Physical geography.

His Oceanography study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Climatology. His Glacial period research includes themes of Productivity and Sea surface temperature. His work on Absolute dating as part of general Radiocarbon dating study is frequently linked to Content, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.

His most cited work include:

  • Holocene vegetation variation in the Daihai Lake region of north-central China: a direct indication of the Asian monsoon climatic history (344 citations)
  • A signature of cosmic-ray increase in ad 774–775 from tree rings in Japan (272 citations)
  • Holocene East Asian monsoonal precipitation pattern revealed by grain-size distribution of core sediments of Daihai Lake in Inner Mongolia of north-central China (232 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Radiocarbon dating, Holocene, Archaeology, Oceanography and Accelerator mass spectrometry. His work in Radiocarbon dating tackles topics such as Geochemistry which are related to areas like Geomorphology. The Holocene study combines topics in areas such as Glacial period, Sediment, Quaternary and Physical geography.

His Physical geography research includes elements of Ecology, Climate change and Vegetation. His work on Pottery as part of general Archaeology research is frequently linked to Charcoal, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. Diatom and Sea level are the subjects of his Oceanography studies.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Radiocarbon dating (42.30%)
  • Holocene (19.05%)
  • Archaeology (18.77%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Radiocarbon dating (42.30%)
  • Archaeology (18.77%)
  • Holocene (19.05%)

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

Toshio Nakamura mainly investigates Radiocarbon dating, Archaeology, Holocene, Physical geography and Dendrochronology. His research integrates issues of Volcano, Cosmic ray and Chronology in his study of Radiocarbon dating. His work on Plan as part of his general Archaeology study is frequently connected to Charcoal, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

Holocene is a subfield of Oceanography that Toshio Nakamura explores. His Oceanography research incorporates themes from Reservoir effect and Shell. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Physical geography, Last Glacial Maximum and Drainage basin is strongly linked to Climate change.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Another rapid event in the carbon-14 content of tree rings (163 citations)
  • Large 14C excursion in 5480 BC indicates an abnormal sun in the mid-Holocene (36 citations)
  • Verification of the Cosmic Ray Event in AD 993–994 by Using a Japanese Hinoki Tree (23 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Paleontology
  • Oceanography

Radiocarbon dating, Holocene, Physical geography, Cosmic ray and Accelerator mass spectrometry are his primary areas of study. Toshio Nakamura combines subjects such as Dendrochronology, Sample preparation and Chronology with his study of Radiocarbon dating. His Holocene study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Glacier, Climatology and Sediment.

His Physical geography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Climate change and Total organic carbon. Many of his research projects under Cosmic ray are closely connected to Solar minimum and Tree with Solar minimum and Tree, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. Toshio Nakamura interconnects Remote sensing and Electrical engineering in the investigation of issues within Accelerator mass spectrometry.
