Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oceanography
  • Paleontology
  • Global warming

Roger Francois mainly focuses on Oceanography, Sediment, Deep sea, Sediment trap and Diagenesis. His work on North Atlantic Deep Water, Thermohaline circulation and Water column as part of general Oceanography research is frequently linked to Nitrate, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. Roger Francois works mostly in the field of North Atlantic Deep Water, limiting it down to topics relating to Ocean current and, in certain cases, Physical oceanography, Deglaciation and Climate change, as a part of the same area of interest.

His studies in Sediment integrate themes in fields like Sedimentary rock and Quaternary. His work in Deep sea addresses issues such as Total organic carbon, which are connected to fields such as Dissolved organic carbon and Mineralogy. His research investigates the connection between Sediment trap and topics such as Upwelling that intersect with problems in Isotopic signature, Bay, Structural basin and Biogeochemistry.

His most cited work include:

  • Collapse and rapid resumption of Atlantic meridional circulation linked to deglacial climate changes (1393 citations)
  • Sedimentary nitrogen isotopic ratio as a recorder for surface ocean nitrate utilization (584 citations)
  • A review of the Si cycle in the modern ocean: recent progress and missing gaps in the application of biogenic opal as a paleoproductivity proxy (568 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Oceanography, Mineralogy, Sediment, Table and Sediment core. His study ties his expertise on Glacial period together with the subject of Oceanography. His research integrates issues of Holocene and Upwelling in his study of Glacial period.

His Mineralogy research integrates issues from Trace element and Plankton. The Sediment study combines topics in areas such as Sedimentary rock, Diagenesis, Seafloor spreading, Seawater and Environmental chemistry. His Seawater study combines topics in areas such as Fractionation and Analytical chemistry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (46.23%)
  • Mineralogy (17.59%)
  • Sediment (17.59%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Oceanography (46.23%)
  • Mineralogy (17.59%)
  • Environmental chemistry (11.56%)

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

His main research concerns Oceanography, Mineralogy, Environmental chemistry, Sediment and Geochemistry. His research investigates the link between Oceanography and topics such as Carbon cycle that cross with problems in Climate change. His Mineralogy research incorporates themes from Foraminifera, Trace element, Table and Plankton.

When carried out as part of a general Environmental chemistry research project, his work on Anoxic waters and Biogeochemical cycle is frequently linked to work in Dispersion, Polybrominated diphenyl ethers and Copper, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. Roger Francois combines subjects such as Seawater and Fjord with his study of Sediment. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Total inorganic carbon and Sediment core.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global variability of chromium isotopes in seawater demonstrated by Pacific, Atlantic, and Arctic Ocean samples (79 citations)
  • Twelve thousand years of dust: the Holocene global dust cycle constrained by natural archives (67 citations)
  • Understanding the Role of the Biological Pump in the Global Carbon Cycle: An Imperative for Ocean Science (55 citations)

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

  • Oceanography
  • Climate change
  • Global warming

His primary areas of study are Oceanography, Seawater, Mineralogy, Sediment and Fractionation. His work in Oceanography tackles topics such as Carbon cycle which are related to areas like Carbon sink. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Environmental chemistry and Analytical chemistry.

His Mineralogy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Geochemistry and Computer simulation. His Sediment research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Siliciclastic, Trough, Quaternary and Provenance. The various areas that Roger Francois examines in his Climate change study include Deep sea and Holocene.
