Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Organic chemistry
  • Bacteria

Jürgen Rullkötter focuses on Mineralogy, Organic matter, Environmental chemistry, Sediment and Diagenesis. The various areas that Jürgen Rullkötter examines in his Mineralogy study include Kerogen, Pristane, Sterane and Maturity. His work carried out in the field of Organic matter brings together such families of science as Sedimentary depositional environment, Total organic carbon and Natural.

The Environmental chemistry study combines topics in areas such as Microorganism, Bacteria, Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere and Photosynthesis. His Sediment study is concerned with the field of Paleontology as a whole. Within one scientific family, Jürgen Rullkötter focuses on topics pertaining to Terrigenous sediment under Diagenesis, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Deep sea.

His most cited work include:

  • The molecularly-uncharacterized component of nonliving organic matter in natural environments (566 citations)
  • Restricted utility of the pristane/phytane ratio as a palaeoenvironmental indicator (512 citations)
  • Tetrahymanol, the most likely precursor of gammacerane, occurs ubiquitously in marine sediments (226 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Organic matter, Oceanography, Sediment, Geochemistry and Mineralogy. Jürgen Rullkötter has included themes like Environmental chemistry, Total organic carbon, Paleontology, Diagenesis and Sedimentary depositional environment in his Organic matter study. He interconnects Microorganism, Gas chromatography and Carbon in the investigation of issues within Environmental chemistry.

His Total organic carbon study combines topics in areas such as Terrigenous sediment and Mediterranean sea. His Sediment research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Hydrology and Chromatography. His Mineralogy research includes elements of Table, Isotopes of carbon, Sterane, Source rock and Maturity.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Organic matter (24.77%)
  • Oceanography (21.56%)
  • Sediment (18.35%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2016)?

  • Table (9.63%)
  • Hydrology (6.88%)
  • N alkanes (3.67%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Table, Hydrology, N alkanes, Sediment and Drainage basin. His studies in Table integrate themes in fields like Hydrogen isotope, Abundance, Standard deviation, Mineralogy and Analytical chemistry. His Hydrology research incorporates themes from Geochemistry, Radiocarbon dating and Sediment core.

His work deals with themes such as Sedimentary rock, Terrigenous sediment, Organic matter and Wetland, which intersect with Radiocarbon dating. His Organic matter research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Phenols, Dissolved organic carbon and Biodegradation. His studies deal with areas such as Arid, Transect and Shrub as well as Sediment.

Between 2011 and 2016, his most popular works were:

  • n-Alkane parameters from a deep sea sediment transect off southwest Africa reflect continental vegetation and climate conditions (57 citations)
  • The Cenomanian/Turonian Boundary Event in the Indian Ocean: a Key to Understand the Global Picture (55 citations)
  • Consistent assessment of trace metal contamination in surface sediments and suspended particulate matter: a case study from the Jade Bay in NW Germany. (45 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Organic chemistry
  • Bacteria

His primary areas of study are Oceanography, Arid, Vegetation, Organic matter and Transect. His Oceanography study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Natural, Paleontology, Cenomanian-Turonian boundary event and Key. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Glacial period and Sediment.

His research integrates issues of Environmental chemistry, Phenols, Terrigenous sediment and Wetland in his study of Organic matter. His work on Dissolved organic carbon as part of general Environmental chemistry research is frequently linked to Humic acid, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Transect research focuses on subjects like Hydrology, which are linked to Sedimentary rock, Radiocarbon dating, Evergreen and Carbon cycle.
