Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Paleontology

Ricardo Prego spends much of his time researching Oceanography, Sediment, Upwelling, Estuary and Seawater. His work deals with themes such as Spring bloom, Biogeochemical cycle and Terrigenous sediment, which intersect with Oceanography. His Sediment research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Organic matter, Mineralogy, Pollution and Biogeochemistry.

The Upwelling study combines topics in areas such as Thermohaline circulation, Photic zone, Hydrography, Current and Discharge. His studies in Estuary integrate themes in fields like Hydrology, Salinity, Marine transgression and Geomorphology. His Hydrology study combines topics in areas such as Particle and Pollution dispersion.

His most cited work include:

  • Twentieth century overview of heavy metals in the Galician Rias (NW Iberian Peninsula) (153 citations)
  • Heavy metal sedimentary record in a Galician Ria (NW Spain): background values and recent contamination (120 citations)
  • A simple model to calculate the residual flows in a Spanish ria. Hydrographic consequences in the ria of Vigo (99 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Oceanography, Sediment, Estuary, Upwelling and Hydrology. His Oceanography research incorporates themes from Phytoplankton, Biogeochemical cycle and Peninsula. His Sediment research also works with subjects such as

  • Environmental chemistry and related Contamination,
  • Pollution that intertwine with fields like Speciation.

His research investigates the link between Estuary and topics such as Water column that cross with problems in Water pollution and Diatom. Ricardo Prego combines subjects such as Thermohaline circulation, Continental shelf, Water mass, Seawater and Biogeochemistry with his study of Upwelling. His Hydrology research includes elements of Fluvial, Particulates, Nutrient and Bay.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (48.89%)
  • Sediment (30.56%)
  • Estuary (29.44%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Oceanography (48.89%)
  • Estuary (29.44%)
  • Upwelling (28.89%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Oceanography, Estuary, Upwelling, Food science and Sediment. His Oceanography research includes themes of Organic matter and Photic zone. Ricardo Prego interconnects Natural, Period, Hydrology, Anthropocene and Nitrate in the investigation of issues within Estuary.

His Nitrate study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Phytoplankton, Nutrient, Salinity and Bay. The various areas that Ricardo Prego examines in his Upwelling study include Seawater, Water mass, Hydrography and Primary production. Ricardo Prego usually deals with Sediment and limits it to topics linked to Geochemistry and Mineralogy, River sediment and Geochemical cycle.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Sources and distribution of yttrium and rare earth elements in surface sediments from Tagus estuary, Portugal. (33 citations)
  • Natural and Anthropocene fluxes of trace elements in estuarine sediments of Galician Rias (18 citations)
  • Climatic and lacustrine morphometric controls of diatom paleoproductivity in a tropical Andean lake (18 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Paleontology

Ricardo Prego mainly investigates Oceanography, Estuary, Sediment, Holocene and Particulates. His work on Upwelling, Biogenic silica, Water column and Productivity as part of his general Oceanography study is frequently connected to Epilimnion, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His Estuary research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Organic matter, Bay, Sewage, Hydrology and Wastewater.

In his study, Nitrate is inextricably linked to Nutrient, which falls within the broad field of Hydrology. His work deals with themes such as Sedimentary rock, Geochemistry, Anthropocene and Biogeochemical cycle, which intersect with Sediment. His studies deal with areas such as River sediment, Mineralogy, Bushveld Igneous Complex and Geochemical cycle as well as Particulates.
