Awards & Achievements

2007 - Vladimir Ivanovich Vernadsky Medal, European Geosciences Union


What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Organic chemistry
  • Ecology

His primary areas of investigation include Oceanography, TEX86, Environmental chemistry, Archaea and Ecology. His Oceanography study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Paleontology, Cenomanian and Cretaceous. His research in TEX86 intersects with topics in Crenarchaeota, Paleothermometer, Water column, Seawater and Membrane lipids.

His research in Environmental chemistry is mostly focused on Anoxic waters. His research investigates the connection with Archaea and areas like Soil microbiology which intersect with concerns in Thermophile. The study incorporates disciplines such as Euryarchaeota and Holocene in addition to Ecology.

His most cited work include:

  • Anaerobic ammonium oxidation by anammox bacteria in the Black Sea (972 citations)
  • Archaeal nitrification in the ocean (886 citations)
  • A microbial consortium couples anaerobic methane oxidation to denitrification (863 citations)

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

Jaap S. Sinninghe Damsté mainly investigates Oceanography, Environmental chemistry, Organic matter, TEX86 and Biochemistry. Oceanography is closely attributed to Sediment in his study. Jaap S. Sinninghe Damsté works mostly in the field of Environmental chemistry, limiting it down to concerns involving Soil water and, occasionally, Hydrology.

Jaap S. Sinninghe Damsté focuses mostly in the field of Organic matter, narrowing it down to matters related to Kerogen and, in some cases, Pyrolysis and Organic chemistry. His TEX86 study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Paleothermometer, Paleontology, Cretaceous and Crenarchaeota. His work in Biochemistry tackles topics such as Bacteria which are related to areas like Botany and Strain.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (25.90%)
  • Environmental chemistry (21.13%)
  • Organic matter (11.73%)

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

  • Oceanography (25.90%)
  • Environmental chemistry (21.13%)
  • Bacteria (10.82%)

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

Oceanography, Environmental chemistry, Bacteria, Botany and Biochemistry are his primary areas of study. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Sedimentary rock and Oceanography. His studies deal with areas such as Organic matter, Sediment, Pelagic zone and Methane as well as Environmental chemistry.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Thaumarchaeota and TEX86. Jaap S. Sinninghe Damsté usually deals with Bacteria and limits it to topics linked to Fatty acid and Membrane. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Botany, Strain and Genus is strongly linked to 16S ribosomal RNA.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The effect of improved chromatography on GDGT-based palaeoproxies (176 citations)
  • Cretaceous sea-surface temperature evolution: Constraints from TEX86 and planktonic foraminiferal oxygen isotopes (152 citations)
  • Abundance and diversity of denitrifying and anammox bacteria in seasonally hypoxic and sulfidic sediments of the saline lake Grevelingen (130 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Organic chemistry
  • Enzyme

Jaap S. Sinninghe Damsté focuses on Bacteria, Botany, Oceanography, Environmental chemistry and Archaea. His Botany study combines topics in areas such as 16S ribosomal RNA, Chitinase and Halophile. His studies in Oceanography integrate themes in fields like Quaternary, Interglacial and River mouth.

Anoxic waters is the focus of his Environmental chemistry research. His Archaea research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Microbial ecology and Membrane lipids. The Sediment study combines topics in areas such as Organic matter and Pelagic zone.
