Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Paleontology

Daniel Birgel mostly deals with Carbonate, Methane, Anaerobic oxidation of methane, Oceanography and Mineralogy. His Carbonate research includes themes of Sulfide minerals, Geochemistry and Paleontology. Daniel Birgel interconnects Phytane and Archaea in the investigation of issues within Methane.

In Anaerobic oxidation of methane, Daniel Birgel works on issues like Environmental chemistry, which are connected to Ecology and Sulfate-reducing bacteria. His work on Arctic, Oxygen minimum zone and Reef as part of his general Oceanography study is frequently connected to Microbial mat, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His Mineralogy study incorporates themes from Pacific ocean, Archaeol and Glycerol.

His most cited work include:

  • A multiple proxy and model study of Cretaceous upper ocean temperatures and atmospheric CO2 concentrations (214 citations)
  • Molecular fossils reveal fluid composition and flow intensity at a Cretaceous seep (103 citations)
  • Changing redox conditions at cold seeps as revealed by authigenic carbonates from Alaminos Canyon, northern Gulf of Mexico (98 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Carbonate, Oceanography, Mineralogy and Environmental chemistry. Daniel Birgel has included themes like Alkalinity, Sulfate and Phosphorite in his Geochemistry study. His Carbonate research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Paleontology, Diagenesis, Calcite and Anaerobic oxidation of methane.

The concepts of his Oceanography study are interwoven with issues in Glacial period and Total organic carbon. His Mineralogy study combines topics in areas such as Compound specific and Table. His research integrates issues of Ecology, Carbon and Archaea, Bacteria in his study of Environmental chemistry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (25.00%)
  • Carbonate (24.50%)
  • Oceanography (23.00%)

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

  • Geochemistry (25.00%)
  • Carbonate (24.50%)
  • Methane (12.50%)

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

Daniel Birgel mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Carbonate, Methane, Anaerobic oxidation of methane and Calcite. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Mediterranean climate and Marl. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Structural basin, Total organic carbon, Diagenesis, Reef and Sulfate.

His Methane research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Environmental chemistry, Euryarchaeota, Bacteria and Cretaceous. His Environmental chemistry research incorporates elements of Methanotroph and Archaea. His Anaerobic oxidation of methane research incorporates themes from Sediment, Archipelago, TEX86 and Arctic.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The formation of microbial-metazoan bioherms and biostromes following the latest Permian mass extinction (21 citations)
  • Fueled by methane: deep-sea sponges from asphalt seeps gain their nutrition from methane-oxidizing symbionts (19 citations)
  • Cryptic biostalactites in a submerged karst cave of the Belize Barrier Reef revisited: Pendant bioconstructions cemented by microbial micrite (18 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Paleontology

His main research concerns Carbonate, Reef, Archaeol, Paleontology and Anaerobic oxidation of methane. His study in Carbonate is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Total organic carbon, Oil shale, Cretaceous and Geochemistry, Calcite. His Reef study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Micrite and Water column.

His work on Paleoecology as part of general Paleontology study is frequently linked to Microbial mat, Anoxygenic photosynthesis, Permian–Triassic extinction event and Early Triassic, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Anaerobic oxidation of methane study is focused on Methane in general. His Petroleum seep study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Environmental chemistry and Authigenic.
