Calvert utilizes a combination of organic, inorganic and stable isotopic information to reconstruct past sea surface temperatures, plankton production, terrestrial sediment supply and transport modes, nutrient utilization and bottom water oxygen concentrations.

Calvert obtained his B.Sc. from the University of Reading in 1958 and is a University of California, San Diego Alumnus, receiving his Ph.D. from Scripps Institution of Oceanography in 1964.
