Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Groundwater

Hydrology, Groundwater, Isotopes of carbon, Environmental chemistry and Aquifer are his primary areas of study. His Hydrology research incorporates themes from Soil water, Dissolved organic carbon and Total organic carbon. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Soil water, focusing on Subtropics and, on occasion, Holocene, Soil organic matter, Vegetation and Physical geography.

His Groundwater study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Water pollution, Nitrate and Surface water. The study incorporates disciplines such as Isotope fractionation, Isotope, Chlorine and Reductive dechlorination in addition to Isotopes of carbon. He interconnects Stable isotope ratio and Carbon, Biodegradation, Organic chemistry in the investigation of issues within Environmental chemistry.

His most cited work include:

  • Use of Multiple Isotope Tracers to Evaluate Denitrification in Ground Water: Study of Nitrate from a Large‐Flux Septic System Plume (424 citations)
  • Stable Isotopes of Oxygen and Nitrogen in Source Identification of Nitrate from Septic Systems (390 citations)
  • Holocene treeline history and climate change across northern Eurasia (303 citations)

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

Ramon Aravena mostly deals with Groundwater, Environmental chemistry, Hydrology, Aquifer and Isotopes of carbon. His Groundwater research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Denitrification, Nitrate and Surface water. His Environmental chemistry study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Biodegradation, Isotope, Isotope analysis, Stable isotope ratio and Carbon.

His studies deal with areas such as Structural basin, Dissolved organic carbon and Radiocarbon dating as well as Hydrology. As a part of the same scientific study, Ramon Aravena usually deals with the Aquifer, concentrating on Geochemistry and frequently concerns with Geomorphology. His studies in Isotopes of carbon integrate themes in fields like Ecology, Microcosm, Soil organic matter and Fractionation, Isotope fractionation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Groundwater (39.17%)
  • Environmental chemistry (33.64%)
  • Hydrology (31.80%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Groundwater (39.17%)
  • Environmental chemistry (33.64%)
  • Biodegradation (13.36%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Groundwater, Environmental chemistry, Biodegradation, Aquifer and Groundwater recharge. His Groundwater research is within the category of Hydrology. Ramon Aravena has included themes like Arid and Soil salinity in his Hydrology study.

His Environmental chemistry research incorporates themes from Isotopes of carbon, Infiltration, Isotope analysis, Environmental remediation and Enrichment factor. The Biodegradation study combines topics in areas such as Phytoremediation, Fractionation, Toluene, Carbon and Sulfate. His work carried out in the field of Aquifer brings together such families of science as Stable isotope ratio and Water resources.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Identification of Degradation Pathways of Chlorohydrocarbons in Saturated Low-Permeability Sediments Using Compound-Specific Isotope Analysis (13 citations)
  • Identification of Degradation Pathways of Chlorohydrocarbons in Saturated Low-Permeability Sediments Using Compound-Specific Isotope Analysis (13 citations)
  • Infiltration of Sulfate to Enhance Sulfate‐Reducing Biodegradation of Petroleum Hydrocarbons (11 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Ecosystem

Ramon Aravena mainly investigates Environmental chemistry, Groundwater, Aquifer, Isotope analysis and Infiltration. His work on Environmental chemistry is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Biodegradation. Ramon Aravena studies Groundwater, focusing on Groundwater recharge in particular.

The subject of his Groundwater recharge research is within the realm of Hydrology. His Aquifer research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Contamination, Chloroform, Dichloromethane and Water pollution. His Isotope analysis study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Isotopes of carbon.
