Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Neuroscience

Kenneth J. Lohmann mainly focuses on Ecology, Magnetoreception, Earth's magnetic field, Oceanography and Hatchling. His Ecology research includes themes of Cartography, Chinook wind, Lead, Orientation and Natal homing. Kenneth J. Lohmann undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Earth's magnetic field and Sea turtle through his works.

His Sea turtle study combines topics in areas such as Bycatch and Predation. His studies in Oceanography integrate themes in fields like Compass, Loggerhead sea turtle, Latitude and Sensory cue. Many of his studies on Hatchling involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Nest.

His most cited work include:

  • The Biology of Sea Turtles (701 citations)
  • The physics and neurobiology of magnetoreception (273 citations)
  • True navigation and magnetic maps in spiny lobsters (245 citations)

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

Kenneth J. Lohmann spends much of his time researching Ecology, Fishery, Oceanography, Magnetoreception and Hatchling. His research in Ecology intersects with topics in Ocean current and Natal homing. In general Fishery, his work in Sea turtle is often linked to Magnetic orientation linking many areas of study.

His work on Submarine pipeline as part of general Oceanography study is frequently connected to Earth's magnetic field, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. The Hatchling study combines topics in areas such as Loggerhead sea turtle, Pelagic zone, Nest and Light source. His Compass research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Heading, Geodesy and Animal navigation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (30.53%)
  • Fishery (29.01%)
  • Oceanography (27.48%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Magnetoreception (24.43%)
  • Earth's magnetic field (20.61%)
  • Oceanography (27.48%)

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

Kenneth J. Lohmann mainly investigates Magnetoreception, Earth's magnetic field, Oceanography, Gene expression and Foraging. Magnetoreception is connected with Oncorhynchus, Animal navigation, Compass, Spiny lobster and Panulirus argus in his study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Computer vision and Geodesy.

His study in Oceanography is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Chinook wind and Environment variable. His work carried out in the field of Gene expression brings together such families of science as Rainbow trout and Cell biology. His research on Foraging concerns the broader Ecology.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A convolutional neural network for detecting sea turtles in drone imagery (33 citations)
  • Quantifying Nearshore Sea Turtle Densities: Applications of Unmanned Aerial Systems for Population Assessments. (19 citations)
  • Evidence that Magnetic Navigation and Geomagnetic Imprinting Shape Spatial Genetic Variation in Sea Turtles (18 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Gene

Magnetoreception, Natal homing, Fishery, Earth's magnetic field and Geodesy are his primary areas of study. His Magnetoreception research incorporates elements of Oncorhynchus, Sensory cue, Oceanography, Substrate and Habitat. The concepts of his Natal homing study are interwoven with issues in Open sea and Imprinting.

His study in the field of Lepidochelys olivacea and Sea turtle also crosses realms of Marine ecosystem. His Earth's magnetic field studies intersect with other disciplines such as Genetic structure, Isolation by distance, Spatial variability, Genetic variation and Evolutionary biology. His Geodesy study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Homing.
