Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oceanography
  • Ecology
  • Carbon dioxide

Dennis A. Hansell spends much of his time researching Oceanography, Dissolved organic carbon, Water column, Deep sea and Seawater. Dennis A. Hansell has researched Oceanography in several fields, including Phytoplankton, Photic zone, New production, Organic matter and Total organic carbon. As a member of one scientific family, Dennis A. Hansell mostly works in the field of Phytoplankton, focusing on Plankton and, on occasion, Bloom.

His Dissolved organic carbon research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Sink, Mesopelagic zone and Bacterioplankton. His studies deal with areas such as Biogeochemical cycle and Biogeochemistry as well as Water column. The study incorporates disciplines such as Sea ice and Surface water in addition to Seawater.

His most cited work include:

  • Biogeochemistry of marine dissolved organic matter (964 citations)
  • Microbial production of recalcitrant dissolved organic matter: long-term carbon storage in the global ocean. (744 citations)
  • Eddy/Wind Interactions Stimulate Extraordinary Mid-Ocean Plankton Blooms (585 citations)

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

Dennis A. Hansell mainly focuses on Oceanography, Dissolved organic carbon, Environmental chemistry, Total organic carbon and Phytoplankton. The various areas that he examines in his Oceanography study include Carbon cycle and Ocean gyre. His Dissolved organic carbon research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Seawater, Deep sea, Organic matter and Terrigenous sediment.

His work deals with themes such as Ecology, Pollution and Oceanic carbon cycle, which intersect with Environmental chemistry. His work focuses on many connections between Total organic carbon and other disciplines, such as Biogeochemical cycle, that overlap with his field of interest in Biogeochemistry. His Phytoplankton study combines topics in areas such as Bloom and Plankton.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (72.47%)
  • Dissolved organic carbon (52.81%)
  • Environmental chemistry (26.97%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Dissolved organic carbon (52.81%)
  • Oceanography (72.47%)
  • Environmental chemistry (26.97%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Dissolved organic carbon, Oceanography, Environmental chemistry, Carbon cycle and Water column. His Dissolved organic carbon study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Deep sea, Organic matter, Total organic carbon, Seawater and Biogeochemistry. His Oceanography research incorporates themes from Phytoplankton and Biogeochemical cycle.

His research on Environmental chemistry also deals with topics like

  • Oceanic carbon cycle together with Geomorphology,
  • Sink which connect with Bacterioplankton. His Carbon cycle study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Ocean dynamics, Ocean current and Surface water. His Water column research includes elements of Bathyal zone, Mixed layer, Atmospheric sciences and Biological pump.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Biogeochemistry of marine dissolved organic matter (964 citations)
  • Recalcitrant Dissolved Organic Carbon Fractions (347 citations)
  • DOM Sources, Sinks, Reactivity, and Budgets (137 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Oceanography

Oceanography, Dissolved organic carbon, Oceanic carbon cycle, Biogeochemical cycle and Carbon cycle are his primary areas of study. His research in Oceanography intersects with topics in Phytoplankton and Terrigenous sediment. Dennis A. Hansell combines subjects such as Deep sea, Organic matter, Water column and Biological pump with his study of Dissolved organic carbon.

His Organic matter study incorporates themes from Atmospheric carbon cycle, Total organic carbon and New production. His Water column research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biomass and Carbon sequestration. His Upwelling research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Photic zone and Mesopelagic zone.
