2015 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Bacteria

Hans W. Paerl mostly deals with Ecology, Eutrophication, Phytoplankton, Algal bloom and Ecosystem. His Ecology research incorporates themes from Hypoxia and Microcystis. His Eutrophication research entails a greater understanding of Nutrient.

Hans W. Paerl interconnects Biomass, Estuary, Oceanography and Productivity in the investigation of issues within Phytoplankton. His research in Estuary tackles topics such as Chlorophyll a which are related to areas like Photosynthesis. His Ecosystem research integrates issues from Global warming, Nitrogen fixation, Biogeochemical cycle and Temporal scales.

His most cited work include:

  • Controlling Eutrophication: Nitrogen and Phosphorus (2107 citations)
  • Blooms like it hot (1636 citations)
  • Trichodesmium, a Globally Significant Marine Cyanobacterium (1030 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Eutrophication, Estuary, Phytoplankton and Nutrient. His study in Cyanobacteria extends to Ecology with its themes. His Eutrophication study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Hypoxia, Nutrient management, Algal bloom, Water quality and Environmental chemistry.

His studies in Algal bloom integrate themes in fields like Water pollution and Climate change. The Estuary study combines topics in areas such as Hydrology, Storm, Salinity and Dissolved organic carbon. His research investigates the connection between Phytoplankton and topics such as Botany that intersect with problems in Diazotroph.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (45.42%)
  • Eutrophication (35.82%)
  • Estuary (29.00%)

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

  • Eutrophication (35.82%)
  • Nutrient (30.92%)
  • Ecology (45.42%)

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

Hans W. Paerl mainly investigates Eutrophication, Nutrient, Ecology, Algal bloom and Estuary. His Eutrophication research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Phytoplankton, Water quality, Environmental chemistry, Aquatic ecosystem and Denitrification. His work in Phytoplankton covers topics such as Bay which are related to areas like Trophic level.

Hans W. Paerl has included themes like Bloom, Wind speed, Ecosystem and Microcystis in his Nutrient study. The concepts of his Algal bloom study are interwoven with issues in Environmental protection, Water pollution, Climate change, Cyanobacteria and Nutrient cycle. His Estuary study is concerned with the field of Oceanography as a whole.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Temperature Effects Explain Continental Scale Distribution of Cyanobacterial Toxins (87 citations)
  • Mitigating the Expansion of Harmful Algal Blooms Across the Freshwater-to-Marine Continuum (87 citations)
  • Nutrients, eutrophication and harmful algal blooms along the freshwater to marine continuum (84 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Bacteria

His main research concerns Eutrophication, Nutrient, Algal bloom, Ecology and Water quality. His Eutrophication research incorporates elements of Phytoplankton, Estuary, Atmospheric sciences, Water column and Bottom water. His Nutrient course of study focuses on Microcystis and Microcystis aeruginosa.

He combines subjects such as Environmental protection, Ecosystem, Environmental biotechnology, Metabolic pathway and Aquatic ecosystem with his study of Algal bloom. His work on Bloom and Algae as part of general Ecology study is frequently connected to Affect and Production, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. The various areas that Hans W. Paerl examines in his Water quality study include Hypoxia, Aquatic plant, Wind speed, Climate change and Hydrology.
