Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Oceanography
  • Ecology
  • Oxygen

Ellen R. M. Druffel mostly deals with Oceanography, Radiocarbon dating, Dissolved organic carbon, Carbon cycle and Total organic carbon. Her work carried out in the field of Oceanography brings together such families of science as Suess effect and Isotopes of carbon. Her Radiocarbon dating study combines topics in areas such as Seasonality, Thermohaline circulation, Gulf Stream and Coral.

Her studies in Dissolved organic carbon integrate themes in fields like Organic matter, Carbon, Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere and Ocean gyre. Her Carbon cycle research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Geochemistry and Nuclear physics. Her Total organic carbon research includes themes of Estuary, Sargasso sea, Sediment and Deposition.

Her most cited work include:

  • Radiocarbon in dissolved organic matter in the central North Pacific Ocean (492 citations)
  • Cycling of dissolved and particulate organic matter in the open ocean (432 citations)
  • A Large Drop in Atmospheric 14C/12C and Reduced Melting in the Younger Dryas, Documented with 230Th Ages of Corals (416 citations)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Oceanography, Radiocarbon dating, Dissolved organic carbon, Coral and Total organic carbon. Hydrography is closely connected to Carbon cycle in her research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Oceanography. Her Radiocarbon dating study incorporates themes from Surface water, Gulf Stream, Water mass, Pacific ocean and Upwelling.

The various areas that she examines in her Dissolved organic carbon study include Organic matter and Carbon, δ13C, Isotopes of carbon. In her study, Subtropics and Ocean gyre is inextricably linked to Climatology, which falls within the broad field of Coral. Her Total organic carbon research incorporates themes from Sedimentary rock, Sediment and Hydrology.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (64.57%)
  • Radiocarbon dating (47.09%)
  • Dissolved organic carbon (37.22%)

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

  • Oceanography (64.57%)
  • Radiocarbon dating (47.09%)
  • Dissolved organic carbon (37.22%)

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

Ellen R. M. Druffel mainly investigates Oceanography, Radiocarbon dating, Dissolved organic carbon, Environmental chemistry and Coral. In her research, Arctic and Organic matter is intimately related to Carbon cycle, which falls under the overarching field of Oceanography. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Earth science, Hydrology, Surface water, Ocean gyre and Carbon.

Her Dissolved organic carbon research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Seawater, Fossil fuel, Pacific ocean and Cycling. Her Total organic carbon study in the realm of Environmental chemistry interacts with subjects such as NMR spectra database. Ellen R. M. Druffel has researched Coral in several fields, including Western Hemisphere Warm Pool, Sea surface temperature, Climatology, Palmyra Atoll and Isotopes of oxygen.

Between 2011 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Linked changes in marine dissolved organic carbon molecular size and radiocarbon age (78 citations)
  • Aged black carbon in marine sediments and sinking particles (54 citations)
  • Pacific carbon cycling constrained by organic matter size, age and composition relationships (44 citations)

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

  • Oceanography
  • Ecology
  • Oxygen

Ellen R. M. Druffel spends much of her time researching Oceanography, Radiocarbon dating, Dissolved organic carbon, Environmental chemistry and Hydrology. As part of the same scientific family, she usually focuses on Oceanography, concentrating on Carbon cycle and intersecting with Range. Ellen R. M. Druffel has included themes like Organic matter and Carbon in her Radiocarbon dating study.

The Dissolved organic carbon study combines topics in areas such as Sedimentary rock, Fossil fuel, Seawater and Cycling. Her study in Environmental chemistry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Molecule, Photochemistry, Radical and Sediment. Her Hydrology research includes elements of Earth science and Global change.
