Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Phytoplankton

Ralf Goericke spends much of his time researching Oceanography, Phytoplankton, Botany, Prochlorococcus and Chlorophyll a. His Oceanography study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Fishery. His research in Phytoplankton intersects with topics in Pelagic zone, Chlorophyll and Ecosystem.

His work deals with themes such as Prochlorophytes and Synechococcus, which intersect with Botany. His Prochlorococcus study deals with Prochlorophyta intersecting with Picoplankton. His Chlorophyll a research includes themes of Chlorophyll c, Taxon, δ13C, Atmospheric sciences and Nutrient.

His most cited work include:

  • A novel free-living prochlorophyte abundant in the oceanic euphotic zone (870 citations)
  • Comparative physiology of Synechococcus and Prochlorococcus: influence of light and temperature on growth, pigments, fluorescence and absorptive properties (519 citations)
  • Variations of marine plankton δ13C with latitude, temperature, and dissolved CO2 in the world ocean (378 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Oceanography, Phytoplankton, Upwelling, Ecosystem and Plankton. His research integrates issues of Ecology and Photic zone in his study of Oceanography. Ralf Goericke combines subjects such as Biomass, Chlorophyll, Environmental chemistry and Chlorophyll a with his study of Phytoplankton.

The Upwelling study combines topics in areas such as Primary production, Atmospheric sciences, Biogeochemical cycle, Water mass and Current. Ralf Goericke has included themes like Trophic level, Climate change and Grazing in his Ecosystem study. The various areas that Ralf Goericke examines in his Plankton study include Carbon cycle and Bacterioplankton.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (62.24%)
  • Phytoplankton (33.67%)
  • Upwelling (23.47%)

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

  • Oceanography (62.24%)
  • Ecosystem (22.45%)
  • Upwelling (23.47%)

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

Ralf Goericke focuses on Oceanography, Ecosystem, Upwelling, Sediment trap and Atmospheric sciences. His Oceanography research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Total organic carbon and Chlorophyll concentration. His study looks at the relationship between Ecosystem and topics such as Productivity, which overlap with Photosynthetically active radiation, Photic zone and Chlorophyll.

His study on Photic zone is covered under Phytoplankton. His study looks at the relationship between Upwelling and fields such as Primary production, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His Sediment trap research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Diel vertical migration, Mesopelagic zone and Zooplankton.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Mesoscale ocean fronts enhance carbon export due to gravitational sinking and subduction (65 citations)
  • The role of subduction and gravitational sinking in particle export, carbon sequestration, and the remineralization length scale in the California Current Ecosystem (21 citations)
  • CCE V: Primary production, mesozooplankton grazing, and the biological pump in the California Current Ecosystem: Variability and response to El Niño (19 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Photosynthesis

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Oceanography, Upwelling, Biological pump, Ecosystem and Subduction. His Oceanography study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Primary production and Forcing. His work carried out in the field of Primary production brings together such families of science as Productivity, Photic zone, Photosynthetically active radiation and Marine snow.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Trophic level, Ecology, Climate change, Marine ecosystem and Pacific decadal oscillation in addition to Forcing. His Particle research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Total organic carbon, Front, New production and Mesoscale meteorology. His Advection research spans across into subjects like Sediment trap, Carbon sequestration, Lagrangian particle tracking, Atmospheric sciences and Sink.
