Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Bacteria

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Anaerobic oxidation of methane, Methane, Ecology, Environmental chemistry and Archaea. Her Anaerobic oxidation of methane research includes elements of Hydrate Ridge, Clathrate hydrate, Mud volcano, Anoxic waters and Sulfate. Her Methane research integrates issues from Microorganism, Oceanography and Mineralogy.

Her study looks at the intersection of Ecology and topics like Sulfate-reducing bacteria with Carbonate. Her study in Beggiatoa extends to Environmental chemistry with its themes. Her Archaea study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Biochemistry and Microbial metabolism.

Her most cited work include:

  • A marine microbial consortium apparently mediating anaerobic oxidation of methane (2133 citations)
  • Anaerobic Oxidation of Methane: Progress with an Unknown Process (1007 citations)
  • Microbial reefs in the Black Sea fueled by anaerobic oxidation of methane (598 citations)

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

Antje Boetius mostly deals with Oceanography, Environmental chemistry, Ecology, Geochemistry and Anaerobic oxidation of methane. Her Environmental chemistry study typically links adjacent topics like Beggiatoa. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Gammaproteobacteria and Microbial population biology.

Her research integrates issues of Pore water pressure and Sediment core in her study of Geochemistry. The Anaerobic oxidation of methane study which covers Archaea that intersects with Methanogenesis. Her Methane research includes themes of Clathrate hydrate and Anoxic waters.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (51.96%)
  • Environmental chemistry (27.07%)
  • Ecology (30.18%)

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

  • Oceanography (51.96%)
  • Cruise (14.17%)
  • Seabed (8.99%)

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

Antje Boetius focuses on Oceanography, Cruise, Seabed, Arctic and Deep sea. Her Oceanography study combines topics in areas such as Phytoplankton and Biogeochemical cycle. Her work in Arctic addresses subjects such as Macrobenthos, which are connected to disciplines such as Abyssal plain.

Her Deep sea study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Sediment, Ecology, Marine ecosystem and Microbial population biology. Her studies deal with areas such as Archaea and Gammaproteobacteria as well as Ecology. Her research in Benthic zone focuses on subjects like Ecosystem, which are connected to Pelagic zone and Flavobacteriia.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Scientists' Warning to Humanity: Microorganisms and Climate Change (263 citations)
  • Scientists' Warning to Humanity: Microorganisms and Climate Change (263 citations)
  • Hypoxia causes preservation of labile organic matter and changes seafloor microbial community composition (Black Sea). (51 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Bacteria

Her primary scientific interests are in Deep sea, Oceanography, Benthic zone, Ecology and Biogeochemical cycle. Her work carried out in the field of Deep sea brings together such families of science as Marine ecosystem, Seabed and Microbial population biology. Antje Boetius works mostly in the field of Oceanography, limiting it down to topics relating to Sediment and, in certain cases, Structural basin, Plough, Habitat, Disturbance and Nodule, as a part of the same area of interest.

The Benthic zone study combines topics in areas such as Abyssal zone, Ecosystem and Cold seep. She interconnects Archaea and Gammaproteobacteria in the investigation of issues within Ecology. Methane covers Antje Boetius research in Anaerobic oxidation of methane.
