Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Ecosystem

W. Berry Lyons mainly focuses on Oceanography, Weathering, Hydrology, Glacier and Rare-earth element. His research in Oceanography intersects with topics in Total organic carbon and Ecosystem. His studies in Weathering integrate themes in fields like Drainage basin and Tropical cyclone.

His research investigates the connection between Hydrology and topics such as Meltwater that intersect with problems in Hyporheic zone. In his research, Water quality is intimately related to Precipitation, which falls under the overarching field of Glacier. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Total dissolved solids and Aquifer.

His most cited work include:

  • Major features and forcing of high‐latitude northern hemisphere atmospheric circulation using a 110,000‐year‐long glaciochemical series (681 citations)
  • Antarctic climate cooling and terrestrial ecosystem response (374 citations)
  • Valley floor climate observations from the McMurdo dry valleys, Antarctica, 1986–2000 (350 citations)

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

W. Berry Lyons focuses on Hydrology, Oceanography, Geochemistry, Glacier and Weathering. Hydrology is closely attributed to Sediment in his study. His Oceanography study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Ecosystem and Biogeochemical cycle.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Bedrock and Pore water pressure in addition to Geochemistry. His research on Glacier also deals with topics like

  • Glacial period which connect with Ice sheet,
  • Snow and related Atmospheric sciences. His work deals with themes such as Seawater, Earth science and Lithology, which intersect with Weathering.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Hydrology (29.48%)
  • Oceanography (23.11%)
  • Geochemistry (25.10%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (25.10%)
  • Glacier (21.51%)
  • Hydrology (29.48%)

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

His main research concerns Geochemistry, Glacier, Hydrology, Weathering and Glacial period. The various areas that W. Berry Lyons examines in his Geochemistry study include Sediment, Seawater and Aeolian processes. His Glacier research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Ecosystem, Earth science and STREAMS.

His research in Hydrology intersects with topics in Nitrate and Land use. His Glacial period research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Environmental chemistry, Ecology, Antarctic ice sheet and Ice sheet. His Meltwater study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Hyporheic zone and Oceanography.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Decadal Ecosystem Response to an Anomalous Melt Season in a Polar Desert in Antarctica (33 citations)
  • The Geochemistry of Englacial Brine From Taylor Glacier, Antarctica (16 citations)
  • An englacial hydrologic system of brine within a cold glacier: Blood Falls, McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica (16 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Climate change

His primary areas of study are Hydrology, Geochemistry, Glacier, Weathering and Ecology. His work on Hydrology, Watershed and Preferential flow is typically connected to δ18O as part of general Hydrology study, connecting several disciplines of science. His work carried out in the field of Geochemistry brings together such families of science as Sediment and Earth science.

His work in the fields of Glacier, such as Meltwater, intersects with other areas such as Brine. His study focuses on the intersection of Ecology and fields such as Glacial period with connections in the field of Range, Invertebrate and Ecosystem. His Climate change study is related to the wider topic of Oceanography.
