Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oxygen
  • Organic chemistry
  • Ecology

Kurt O. Konhauser mainly investigates Mineralogy, Precambrian, Banded iron formation, Geochemistry and Environmental chemistry. His work deals with themes such as Deposition, Hot spring and Hydrothermal circulation, which intersect with Mineralogy. He has researched Precambrian in several fields, including Sedimentary rock, Cyanobacteria, Earth science and Archean.

His Banded iron formation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Seawater, Siderite, Anoxic waters and Ferrous. The Pyrite research Kurt O. Konhauser does as part of his general Geochemistry study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Energy source, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. The Environmental chemistry study combines topics in areas such as Phosphate, Biomineralization and Dissolved silica.

His most cited work include:

  • Iron Formation: The Sedimentary Product of a Complex Interplay among Mantle, Tectonic, Oceanic, and Biospheric Processes (530 citations)
  • Could bacteria have formed the Precambrian banded iron formations (391 citations)
  • Introduction to geomicrobiology (356 citations)

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

Kurt O. Konhauser mostly deals with Geochemistry, Environmental chemistry, Banded iron formation, Precambrian and Mineralogy. His studies in Geochemistry integrate themes in fields like Sedimentary depositional environment, Carbonate and Hydrothermal circulation. His studies deal with areas such as Biomineralization, Adsorption, Cyanobacteria, Bacteria and Seawater as well as Environmental chemistry.

He interconnects Ferrous, Magnetite, Siderite and Great Oxygenation Event in the investigation of issues within Banded iron formation. His Precambrian research incorporates elements of Trace element, Earth science and Anoxic waters. His work in Mineralogy is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Ferrihydrite.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (28.83%)
  • Environmental chemistry (24.82%)
  • Banded iron formation (20.44%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (28.83%)
  • Environmental chemistry (24.82%)
  • Adsorption (9.49%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Environmental chemistry, Adsorption, Precambrian and Banded iron formation. His Geochemistry research includes elements of Sedimentary depositional environment, Sedimentary structures and Hydrothermal circulation. His Environmental chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Seawater, Cyanobacteria, Cadmium and Sorption.

His Adsorption research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Illite, Kaolinite, Inorganic chemistry, Metal and Montmorillonite. His Precambrian study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Trace element, Biogeochemical cycle, Green rust and Humanities. His Banded iron formation study improves the overall literature in Archean.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Influence of pyrolysis temperature on production of digested sludge biochar and its application for ammonium removal from municipal wastewater (66 citations)
  • Organism motility in an oxygenated shallow-marine environment 2.1 billion years ago. (18 citations)
  • Microbially induced potassium enrichment in Paleoproterozoic shales and implications for reverse weathering on early Earth (17 citations)

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

  • Oxygen
  • Organic chemistry
  • Ecology

His primary areas of study are Geochemistry, Adsorption, Precambrian, Clay minerals and Illite. His study in the field of Mafic also crosses realms of Flood basalt. His Adsorption study incorporates themes from Inorganic chemistry, Environmental chemistry and Ammonium.

His Environmental chemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ferrous, Deposition, Banded iron formation and Great Oxygenation Event. His Precambrian research integrates issues from Green rust, Molybdenum, Sulfur and Biogeochemical cycle. His work investigates the relationship between Biogeochemical cycle and topics such as Earth science that intersect with problems in Archean.
