2003 - Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada Academy of Science

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Organic chemistry
  • Environmental chemistry

His scientific interests lie mostly in Environmental chemistry, Arctic, Ecology, Ursus maritimus and Pesticide. His Environmental chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Perfluorooctane, Air pollution and Chlordane. In his work, Snow, Atmosphere and Particulates is strongly intertwined with Pollutant, which is a subfield of Air pollution.

His Arctic research incorporates themes from Sediment, Marine ecosystem, The arctic, Hydrology and Persistent organic pollutant. He interconnects Zoology, Phoca, Congener, Contamination and Adipose tissue in the investigation of issues within Ursus maritimus. In his study, Chromatography is inextricably linked to Rainbow trout, which falls within the broad field of Bioaccumulation.

His most cited work include:

  • Biological Monitoring of Polyfluoroalkyl Substances: A Review (870 citations)
  • Bioconcentration and tissue distribution of perfluorinated acids in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) (591 citations)
  • Identification of Long-Chain Perfluorinated Acids in Biota from the Canadian Arctic (524 citations)

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

Derek C. G. Muir focuses on Environmental chemistry, Arctic, Ecology, Bioaccumulation and Sediment. His Environmental chemistry study focuses on Biomagnification in particular. His studies in Arctic integrate themes in fields like Arctic char, Mercury, Biota and The arctic.

His Bioaccumulation study deals with Rainbow trout intersecting with Trout. Snow is closely connected to Deposition in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Sediment. His Pesticide study incorporates themes from Air pollution and Persistent organic pollutant.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (50.27%)
  • Arctic (25.61%)
  • Ecology (25.61%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Environmental chemistry (50.27%)
  • Arctic (25.61%)
  • Sediment (11.52%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Environmental chemistry, Arctic, Sediment, Bioaccumulation and Pollutant. His work is dedicated to discovering how Environmental chemistry, Contamination are connected with Passive sampling and other disciplines. In his research on the topic of Arctic, Cadmium and Salvelinus is strongly related with Mercury.

His Sediment study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Hydrology, Oil sands, Physical geography and Pollution. His Bioaccumulation research includes themes of Trophic level and Food web. His research ties Pesticide and Pollutant together.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Temporal trends of persistent organic pollutants in Arctic marine and freshwater biota. (78 citations)
  • The distribution and trends of persistent organic pollutants and mercury in marine mammals from Canada's Eastern Arctic. (62 citations)
  • Current state of knowledge on biological effects from contaminants on arctic wildlife and fish (61 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Organic chemistry
  • Internal medicine

Derek C. G. Muir mainly focuses on Environmental chemistry, Arctic, Sediment, Ecology and Pollutant. A large part of his Environmental chemistry studies is devoted to Bioaccumulation. Derek C. G. Muir has researched Arctic in several fields, including Arctic char, Glacial period, Soil water and Biota.

His studies in Sediment integrate themes in fields like Hydrology, Contamination, Oil sands and Cycling. His Pollutant research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Aquatic environment, Pesticide, Hazard and Hexabromocyclododecane. His research integrates issues of Mercury, Bay and Ecosystem in his study of Trophic level.
