Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Ecosystem

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Environmental chemistry, Estuary, Oceanography, Bay and Surface water. He has included themes like Accuracy and precision, Methylmercury, Mineralogy and Water column in his Environmental chemistry study. His study in Estuary is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Seawater, Wastewater, Dissolved organic carbon and Benthic zone.

His study in the field of Submarine pipeline and Particle also crosses realms of Concentration gradient and TRACER. The concepts of his Bay study are interwoven with issues in Water pollution, Water quality, Pollution, Pacific ocean and Upwelling. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Deposition, Radiogenic nuclide, Westerlies, Mixed layer and Isotopic signature.

His most cited work include:

  • Detection of Environmental Impacts: Natural Variability, Effect Size, and Power Analysis (247 citations)
  • Mercury speciation in the San Francisco Bay estuary (197 citations)
  • Anthropogenic silver in the Southern California Bight: a new tracer of sewage in coastal waters (160 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Oceanography, Environmental chemistry, Bay, Estuary and Hydrology. His Oceanography research integrates issues from Biogeochemical cycle and Surface water. His research in Environmental chemistry intersects with topics in Contamination, Trace element, Isotope analysis, Mineralogy and Seawater.

His research in Bay tackles topics such as Water quality which are related to areas like Water pollution. His Estuary study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Organic matter, Water column, Pollution, Dissolved organic carbon and Geochemical cycle. His study in the fields of Groundwater under the domain of Hydrology overlaps with other disciplines such as Period.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (35.71%)
  • Environmental chemistry (32.14%)
  • Bay (26.79%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2020)?

  • Environmental chemistry (32.14%)
  • Contamination (15.18%)
  • Oceanography (35.71%)

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

A. Russell Flegal mainly focuses on Environmental chemistry, Contamination, Oceanography, Geotraces and Seawater. A. Russell Flegal has researched Environmental chemistry in several fields, including Soil water, Trace element, Mineralogy and Water column. A. Russell Flegal interconnects Natural, Environmental protection, Estuary, Outfall and Wastewater in the investigation of issues within Contamination.

His Oceanography research includes themes of Particulates and Biogeochemical cycle. His Seawater research includes elements of Salinity, Nitrate and Abiotic component. His work deals with themes such as Spatial distribution, Transect and Surface water, which intersect with Bay.

Between 2011 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • The GEOTRACES Intermediate Data Product 2017 (138 citations)
  • Increases in Anthropogenic Gadolinium Anomalies and Rare Earth Element Concentrations in San Francisco Bay over a 20 Year Record (118 citations)
  • Factors controlling the abiotic photo-degradation of monomethylmercury in surface waters (84 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Ecosystem

A. Russell Flegal mostly deals with Environmental chemistry, Geotraces, Contamination, Mineralogy and Water column. His studies in Contamination integrate themes in fields like Isotopic composition, Waste management and Aquatic ecosystem. His Mineralogy study combines topics in areas such as Fractionation, Trace element and Isotope dilution.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry, Bay and Anomaly in addition to Isotope dilution. His Bay study deals with the bigger picture of Oceanography. His work carried out in the field of Water column brings together such families of science as Salinity, Nitrate and Abiotic component.
