Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Oxygen

His primary areas of study are Environmental chemistry, Ecology, Sulfate, Sediment and Sulfide. His Environmental chemistry research incorporates themes from Photosynthesis, Anaerobic oxidation of methane, Methane and Oxygen. The concepts of his Ecology study are interwoven with issues in Microorganism, Microbial ecology, Bacteria and Earth science.

The Sulfate study combines topics in areas such as Organic matter, Sulfur, Mineralization and Pyrite. His Sediment research integrates issues from Butyrate, Oceanography, Mineralogy and Total organic carbon. His Sulfide study combines topics in areas such as Inorganic chemistry, Thiosulfate and Chemical reaction.

His most cited work include:

  • A marine microbial consortium apparently mediating anaerobic oxidation of methane (2133 citations)
  • Mineralization of organic matter in the sea bed—the role of sulphate reduction (1313 citations)
  • Anaerobic ammonium oxidation by anammox bacteria in the Black Sea (972 citations)

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

Bo Barker Jørgensen mostly deals with Environmental chemistry, Sediment, Sulfate, Oceanography and Methane. His studies examine the connections between Environmental chemistry and genetics, as well as such issues in Sulfide, with regards to Oxygen. His Sediment study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Deep sea, Ecology, Biogeochemical cycle, Biogeochemistry and Fjord.

His research in Ecology intersects with topics in Microorganism, Microbial ecology, Archaea and Microbial population biology. His Sulfate research includes elements of Sulfur, Inorganic chemistry, Methanogenesis, Bacteria and Mineralogy. His Methane research incorporates elements of Baltic sea, Porosity, Pore water pressure and Sediment core.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (36.16%)
  • Sediment (35.40%)
  • Sulfate (28.63%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Sediment (35.40%)
  • Environmental chemistry (36.16%)
  • Sulfate (28.63%)

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

Bo Barker Jørgensen mainly investigates Sediment, Environmental chemistry, Sulfate, Oceanography and Ecology. His Sediment research includes themes of Organic matter, Total organic carbon, Water column, Biogeochemical cycle and Fjord. His Environmental chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Sulfur, Methane, Sulfate-reducing bacteria, Nitrate and Isotope fractionation.

Bo Barker Jørgensen combines subjects such as Continental shelf and Mineralization with his study of Sulfate. His Oceanography research focuses on Biosphere and how it connects with Microorganism and Microbial ecology. The Ecology study combines topics in areas such as Archaea and Microbial population biology.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Life under extreme energy limitation: a synthesis of laboratory- and field-based investigations. (172 citations)
  • A modular method for the extraction of DNA and RNA, and the separation of DNA pools from diverse environmental sample types. (130 citations)
  • Origin, dynamics, and implications of extracellular DNA pools in marine sediments. (129 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Oxygen

Sediment, Environmental chemistry, Ecology, Sulfate and Organic matter are his primary areas of study. His Sediment study combines topics in areas such as Total organic carbon, Microbial population biology, Oceanography, Water column and Archaea. His Environmental chemistry research incorporates elements of Sulfur cycle, Sulfur, Sulfide, Dissimilatory sulfate reduction and Nitrate.

In his work, Mineralogy is strongly intertwined with Isotopes of oxygen, which is a subfield of Sulfide. The concepts of his Sulfate study are interwoven with issues in Continental shelf, Biogeochemical cycle and Methane. His work investigates the relationship between Organic matter and topics such as Microorganism that intersect with problems in Spirulina and Seabed.
