Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Phytoplankton

His scientific interests lie mostly in Oceanography, Zooplankton, Upwelling, Ecology and Phytoplankton. His research in Oceanography is mostly concerned with Fjord. His Zooplankton research includes elements of Sediment trap, Water column, Pelagic zone and Crustacean.

Humberto E. González interconnects Microbial loop and Food web in the investigation of issues within Pelagic zone. As part of the same scientific family, Humberto E. González usually focuses on Upwelling, concentrating on Biomass and intersecting with Trophic level and Productivity. The various areas that he examines in his Phytoplankton study include Chlorophyll a and Plankton.

His most cited work include:

  • The humboldt current system of northern and central chile : Oceanographic processes, ecological interactions and socioeconomic feedback (310 citations)
  • The possible role of the cyclopoid copepod Oithona in retarding vertical flux of zooplankton faecal material (249 citations)
  • Spatial and temporal variability of chlorophyll and primary productivity in surface waters of southern Chile (41.5–43° S) (150 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Oceanography, Phytoplankton, Ecology, Upwelling and Plankton. His study in Oceanography focuses on Zooplankton, Water column, Biomass, Pelagic zone and Fjord. His Phytoplankton research includes themes of Microcosm, Primary production, Sediment trap, Chlorophyll a and Animal science.

In general Ecology, his work in Ecosystem, Microbial loop, Predation and Microbial food web is often linked to Engraulis linking many areas of study. In his research on the topic of Upwelling, Chaetoceros is strongly related with Diatom. Humberto E. González works mostly in the field of Plankton, limiting it down to topics relating to Productivity and, in certain cases, Sedimentation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (85.71%)
  • Phytoplankton (52.38%)
  • Ecology (44.22%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Oceanography (85.71%)
  • Phytoplankton (52.38%)
  • Fjord (18.37%)

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

Humberto E. González mostly deals with Oceanography, Phytoplankton, Fjord, Water column and Glacier. His Oceanography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Trophic level and Ecosystem. His Phytoplankton study incorporates themes from Dominance, Stratification, Salinity and Surface water.

He has included themes like Organic matter, Coccolithophore, Glacier mass balance and Ocean acidification in his Fjord study. His Water column research focuses on subjects like Copepod, which are linked to Benthos, Functional response and Cnidaria. His Upwelling research incorporates elements of Diatom and Anticyclone.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Micro-phytoplankton community structure in the coastal upwelling zone off Concepción (central Chile): Annual and inter-annual fluctuations in a highly dynamic environment (30 citations)
  • Highly variable iron content modulates iceberg-ocean fertilisation and potential carbon export (26 citations)
  • The role of water column stability and wind mixing in the production/export dynamics of two bays in the Western Antarctic Peninsula (18 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Ecosystem

Humberto E. González mainly investigates Oceanography, Phytoplankton, Water column, Stratification and Global warming. Oceanography is often connected to Primary production in his work. His research investigates the connection between Phytoplankton and topics such as Dominance that intersect with issues in Trophic level.

His Water column study combines topics in areas such as Iron fertilization, Pellets, Grazing pressure, Environmental chemistry and Nitrate. His research integrates issues of Photosynthesis, Silicic acid, Freshwater discharge and Peninsula in his study of Stratification. His research in Global warming intersects with topics in Submarine pipeline, Iceberg, Anticyclone and Ecosystem.
