Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Carbon dioxide

Kai-Uwe Hinrichs mainly investigates Archaea, Ecology, Methane, Environmental chemistry and Anaerobic oxidation of methane. Many of his research projects under Archaea are closely connected to Polar membrane with Polar membrane, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His studies deal with areas such as Sediment and Phylogenetics as well as Ecology.

His Methane study combines topics in areas such as Oceanography, Carbon cycle, Paleoclimatology and Mineralogy. The concepts of his Environmental chemistry study are interwoven with issues in Hydrate Ridge, Organic matter, Isotopes of carbon, Total inorganic carbon and Water column. His Anaerobic oxidation of methane research includes elements of Sulfate-reducing bacteria, Sulfate, Guaymas Basin and Cold seep.

His most cited work include:

  • Methane-consuming archaebacteria in marine sediments (977 citations)
  • Methane-consuming archaea revealed by directly coupled isotopic and phylogenetic analysis. (819 citations)
  • Distributions of microbial activities in deep subseafloor sediments. (570 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Environmental chemistry, Sediment, Oceanography, Archaea and Methane. Kai-Uwe Hinrichs has researched Environmental chemistry in several fields, including Organic matter, Carbon, Anaerobic oxidation of methane and Methanogenesis. His Sediment study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Geochemistry and Biogeochemical cycle.

The various areas that Kai-Uwe Hinrichs examines in his Archaea study include Ecology and Membrane lipids. Kai-Uwe Hinrichs regularly ties together related areas like Microorganism in his Ecology studies. His Methane research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Carbon cycle and Mineralogy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (32.12%)
  • Sediment (22.06%)
  • Oceanography (20.99%)

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

  • Environmental chemistry (32.12%)
  • Geochemistry (13.28%)
  • Sediment (22.06%)

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

His main research concerns Environmental chemistry, Geochemistry, Sediment, Biogeochemical cycle and Water column. His work deals with themes such as Organic matter, Guaymas Basin and Archaea, which intersect with Environmental chemistry. His Archaea research includes themes of Plankton, Glycerol and Mediterranean sea.

His Geochemistry study incorporates themes from Structural basin, Seafloor spreading, Pore water pressure and Methane. Kai-Uwe Hinrichs interconnects Seawater and Mass spectrometry imaging in the investigation of issues within Sediment. His Biogeochemical cycle research focuses on Carbon cycle and how it relates to Lipidome, Total organic carbon, Carbon fixation and Autotroph.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Growth of sedimentary Bathyarchaeota on lignin as an energy source (71 citations)
  • Deep-biosphere methane production stimulated by geofluids in the Nankai accretionary complex (41 citations)
  • Distribution and export of isoprenoid tetraether lipids in suspended particulate matter from the water column of the Western Atlantic Ocean (29 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Carbon dioxide

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Environmental chemistry, Sediment, Water column, Methane and Biogeochemical cycle. His study in the field of Anoxic waters is also linked to topics like Energy source. His research in Sediment intersects with topics in Ecology, Biosphere and Mass spectrometry imaging, Mass spectrometry.

His Anaerobic oxidation of methane study in the realm of Methane interacts with subjects such as Isotopologue. In most of his Seawater studies, his work intersects topics such as Archaea. The study incorporates disciplines such as Sea surface temperature, Oceanic carbon cycle and Plankton in addition to Archaea.
