Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Oxygen

His primary scientific interests are in Environmental chemistry, Inorganic chemistry, Sediment, Ecology and Nitrate. The concepts of his Environmental chemistry study are interwoven with issues in Sulfate and Microbiology. His research in Inorganic chemistry intersects with topics in Mineral, Sulfide, Clay minerals, Shewanella putrefaciens and Electron acceptor.

His Sediment research includes elements of Carbon cycle, Biogeochemical cycle and Microbial population biology. His Ecology research integrates issues from Proteobacteria, Isotopes of nitrogen and Gammaproteobacteria. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Nitrogen, Denitrifying bacteria, Aerobic denitrification, Nitrogen cycle and Denitrification.

His most cited work include:

  • Hydrocarbon-Degrading Bacteria and the Bacterial Community Response in Gulf of Mexico Beach Sands Impacted by the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill (583 citations)
  • PARTITIONING AND SPECIATION OF SOLID PHASE IRON IN SALTMARSH SEDIMENTS (507 citations)
  • Sulfate-reducing bacteria methylate mercury at variable rates in pure culture and in marine sediments. (299 citations)

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

His main research concerns Environmental chemistry, Ecology, Sediment, Peat and Microbial population biology. His Environmental chemistry research incorporates elements of Soil water, Sulfate, Nitrate and Mineralogy. Joel E. Kostka interconnects Bacteria, Gammaproteobacteria, Botany and Metagenomics in the investigation of issues within Ecology.

His research investigates the connection with Sediment and areas like Salt marsh which intersect with concerns in Spartina alterniflora. His work investigates the relationship between Peat and topics such as Dissolved organic carbon that intersect with problems in Carbon cycle. His Microbial population biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Relative species abundance and Microbial ecology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (44.38%)
  • Ecology (23.03%)
  • Sediment (16.85%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Environmental chemistry (44.38%)
  • Peat (16.29%)
  • Ecology (23.03%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Environmental chemistry, Peat, Ecology, Petroleum and Ecosystem. His Environmental chemistry study incorporates themes from Hydrocarbon and Bacteria. His Peat research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Soil water, Dissolved organic carbon and Atmospheric sciences.

His work deals with themes such as Diazotroph and Microbial population biology, which intersect with Ecology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Seawater, Rare biosphere, Biodegradation and Habitat in addition to Petroleum. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Zetaproteobacteria, Spartina alterniflora, Rhizosphere and Metagenomics.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Sphagnome Project: enabling ecological and evolutionary insights through a genus-level sequencing project. (22 citations)
  • Degradation of Deepwater Horizon oil buried in a Florida beach influenced by tidal pumping. (21 citations)
  • Vertical Stratification of Peat Pore Water Dissolved Organic Matter Composition in a Peat Bog in Northern Minnesota (19 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Oxygen

Joel E. Kostka spends much of his time researching Peat, Environmental chemistry, Sphagnum, Ecosystem and Ecology. His Peat study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Global warming, Carbon and Dissolved organic carbon. His research integrates issues of Hydrocarbon, Seawater, Sulfate, Petroleum and Electron acceptor in his study of Environmental chemistry.

Joel E. Kostka has included themes like Bog, Methanogenesis and Wetland in his Sphagnum study. Joel E. Kostka focuses mostly in the field of Methanogenesis, narrowing it down to topics relating to Growing season and, in certain cases, Microbial population biology. His Ecology study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Microbiome.
