Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Ecosystem

His scientific interests lie mostly in Oceanography, Arctic, Zooplankton, Phytoplankton and Spring bloom. The concepts of his Oceanography study are interwoven with issues in Organic matter, Sedimentation and Calanus finmarchicus. Paul Wassmann interconnects Climatology, Thermohaline circulation, Stratification, Climate change and Benthic zone in the investigation of issues within Arctic.

As part of one scientific family, Paul Wassmann deals mainly with the area of Zooplankton, narrowing it down to issues related to the Plankton, and often Water column, Trophic level, Pelagic zone and Food web. Paul Wassmann studied Phytoplankton and Water mass that intersect with Polar front. His research integrates issues of Photic zone and New production in his study of Spring bloom.

His most cited work include:

  • Footprints of climate change in the Arctic marine ecosystem (504 citations)
  • Nature of phosphorus limitation in the ultraoligotrophic eastern Mediterranean. (360 citations)
  • Food webs and physical–biological coupling on pan-Arctic shelves: Unifying concepts and comprehensive perspectives ☆ (310 citations)

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

Paul Wassmann spends much of his time researching Oceanography, Arctic, Phytoplankton, Plankton and Ecology. His study in Oceanography is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Spring bloom and Photic zone. His Arctic study incorporates themes from Global warming, Climate change and Climatology.

His research investigates the connection with Phytoplankton and areas like Chlorophyll a which intersect with concerns in Nutrient. His Plankton research includes elements of Productivity, Primary production and Atmospheric sciences. His Pelagic zone study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Sedimentation, Benthic zone and Food web.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (78.21%)
  • Arctic (31.41%)
  • Phytoplankton (29.49%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2020)?

  • Oceanography (78.21%)
  • Arctic (31.41%)
  • Plankton (26.28%)

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

Oceanography, Arctic, Plankton, Ecology and Climate change are his primary areas of study. His Oceanography study combines topics in areas such as Climatology and Spring bloom. The concepts of his Spring bloom study are interwoven with issues in Bloom and Primary production.

His work carried out in the field of Arctic brings together such families of science as Diatom, Biomass and Atmospheric sciences. The various areas that Paul Wassmann examines in his Plankton study include Seawater, Phytoplankton, Community respiration and Biogeochemical cycle. His study in the field of Microcosm, Trophic level and Abiotic component is also linked to topics like Panarchy and Physical change.

Between 2012 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • The contiguous domains of Arctic Ocean advection: Trails of life and death (80 citations)
  • Physical constrains and productivity in the future Arctic Ocean (70 citations)
  • Role for Atlantic inflows and sea ice loss on shifting phytoplankton blooms in the Barents Sea (46 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Ecosystem

His primary scientific interests are in Arctic, Oceanography, Arctic sea ice decline, Arctic geoengineering and Arctic dipole anomaly. Paul Wassmann has researched Arctic in several fields, including Global warming and Plankton. His Plankton study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Bloom, Primary production, Seasonality, Water mass and Seawater.

Within one scientific family, Paul Wassmann focuses on topics pertaining to Spring bloom under Oceanography, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Melt pond. The Arctic geoengineering study combines topics in areas such as Climate change and Effects of global warming. His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Photic zone and Physical oceanography.
