Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Phytoplankton

Alex J. Poulton spends much of his time researching Oceanography, Phytoplankton, Plankton, Total organic carbon and Environmental science. His study deals with a combination of Oceanography and Nitrogen fixation. His Phytoplankton research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Diatom, Deep sea, Bloom and Chlorophyll a.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Carbon sequestration, Ocean fertilization, High-Nutrient, low-chlorophyll and Iron fertilization in addition to Deep sea. His research in Plankton tackles topics such as Biogeochemical cycle which are related to areas like Biomass and Abundance. Alex J. Poulton conducts interdisciplinary study in the fields of Environmental science and Carbon cycle through his research.

His most cited work include:

  • Large-scale distribution of Atlantic nitrogen fixation controlled by iron availability (318 citations)
  • Southern Ocean deep-water carbon export enhanced by natural iron fertilization (260 citations)
  • Southern Ocean deep-water carbon export enhanced by natural iron fertilization (260 citations)

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

Alex J. Poulton focuses on Oceanography, Phytoplankton, Environmental science, Coccolithophore and Plankton. His Oceanography research incorporates themes from Ecology and Carbon cycle. The concepts of his Phytoplankton study are interwoven with issues in Diatom, Biomass, Biogeochemical cycle and Arctic.

His studies in Coccolithophore integrate themes in fields like Coccolith, Emiliania huxleyi, Total inorganic carbon and Calcite. Alex J. Poulton interconnects Deep sea and Total organic carbon in the investigation of issues within Calcite. His research investigates the connection between Plankton and topics such as Photic zone that intersect with problems in Dissolved organic carbon and Water column.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (79.11%)
  • Phytoplankton (53.16%)
  • Environmental science (41.14%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Environmental science (41.14%)
  • Remote sensing (8.23%)
  • Phytoplankton (53.16%)

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

His primary areas of study are Environmental science, Remote sensing, Phytoplankton, Attenuation coefficient and SeaWiFS. His Phytoplankton study incorporates themes from Bloom and Oceanography. His Bloom study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Biogenic silica and Temperate climate.

Alex J. Poulton mostly deals with Plankton in his studies of Oceanography. His work deals with themes such as Ciliate, Arctic and Chlorophyll a, which intersect with Plankton. His research integrates issues of Abundance and Niche in his study of Coccolithophore.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Growth and mortality of coccolithophores during spring in a temperate Shelf Sea (Celtic Sea, April 2015) (14 citations)
  • A compilation of global bio-optical in situ data for ocean-colour satellite applications – version two (9 citations)
  • Trait‐based analysis of subpolar North Atlantic phytoplankton and plastidic ciliate communities using automated flow cytometer (6 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Carbon dioxide

His primary scientific interests are in Oceanography, Phytoplankton, Total inorganic carbon, Environmental science and Marine ecosystem. His work carried out in the field of Oceanography brings together such families of science as Emiliania huxleyi and Carbon cycle. His Carbon cycle research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Dissolved organic carbon, Pelagic zone and Biogeochemistry.

His Total inorganic carbon study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Photosynthesis, Remote sensing, Particulates, photoperiodism and Environmental chemistry. His studies in Marine ecosystem integrate themes in fields like Chlorophyll a, Ciliate, Arctic and Plankton. His Plankton research incorporates themes from Cretaceous, Food chain and Darkness.
