Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oxygen
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Oceanography

His main research concerns Dissolved organic carbon, Oceanography, Environmental science, Environmental chemistry and Carbon. His research in Dissolved organic carbon intersects with topics in Photic zone and Particulates. His research investigates the connection between Oceanography and topics such as Carbon cycle that intersect with problems in Seasonality.

His work carried out in the field of Environmental chemistry brings together such families of science as Nitrogen, Nitrate, Phosphate, Seawater and Nutrient. His Seawater study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Deep sea, Organic matter and Biogeochemical cycle. The study incorporates disciplines such as Estuary, Pacific ocean and δ13C in addition to Total organic carbon.

His most cited work include:

  • Radiocarbon in dissolved organic matter in the central North Pacific Ocean (492 citations)
  • Cycling of dissolved and particulate organic matter in the open ocean (432 citations)
  • 14 C activity of dissolved organic carbon fractions in the north-central Pacific and Sargasso Sea (274 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Dissolved organic carbon, Oceanography, Environmental chemistry, Environmental science and Seawater. His Dissolved organic carbon research integrates issues from Organic matter, Carbon, Total organic carbon and Nutrient. Peter M. Williams has included themes like Abyssal zone, Pacific ocean and δ13C in his Total organic carbon study.

His study on Water column, Deep sea and Submarine pipeline is often connected to North central as part of broader study in Oceanography. His work deals with themes such as Ecology, Diel vertical migration, Particulates, Isotopes of carbon and Mineralogy, which intersect with Environmental chemistry. His study on Seawater also encompasses disciplines like

  • Nitrogen which is related to area like Catalytic oxidation,
  • Nitrate which connect with Phosphate.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Dissolved organic carbon (50.98%)
  • Oceanography (49.02%)
  • Environmental chemistry (39.22%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1988-1998)?

  • Oceanography (49.02%)
  • Dissolved organic carbon (50.98%)
  • Environmental science (39.22%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Oceanography, Dissolved organic carbon, Environmental science, Water column and Seawater. Peter M. Williams interconnects Organic matter, Total organic carbon and Particulates in the investigation of issues within Oceanography. His studies in Organic matter integrate themes in fields like Environmental chemistry and Isotopes of carbon.

He studied Total organic carbon and Total inorganic carbon that intersect with Pacific ocean. Within one scientific family, Peter M. Williams focuses on topics pertaining to Carbon under Dissolved organic carbon, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Biogeochemical cycle. The Seawater study combines topics in areas such as General chemistry, Catalytic oxidation and Nitrogen.

Between 1988 and 1998, his most popular works were:

  • Cycling of dissolved and particulate organic matter in the open ocean (432 citations)
  • 14 C activity of dissolved organic carbon fractions in the north-central Pacific and Sargasso Sea (274 citations)
  • Identification of a deep marine source of particulate organic carbon using bomb 14C (103 citations)
