Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Paleontology

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Oceanography, Anoxic waters, Precambrian, Paleontology and Inorganic chemistry. Simon W. Poulton interconnects Glacial period and Biogeochemical cycle in the investigation of issues within Oceanography. His work carried out in the field of Anoxic waters brings together such families of science as Geochemistry, Pyrite, Total organic carbon and Sturtian glaciation.

Simon W. Poulton has researched Precambrian in several fields, including Paleoatmosphere and Earth science. His studies deal with areas such as Bottom water, Deep sea, Molybdenum isotope and Phytoplankton as well as Paleontology. As part of one scientific family, Simon W. Poulton deals mainly with the area of Inorganic chemistry, narrowing it down to issues related to the Magnetite, and often Hematite, Molybdenum and Dissolved phase.

His most cited work include:

  • Tracing the stepwise oxygenation of the Proterozoic ocean (684 citations)
  • Development of a sequential extraction procedure for iron: implications for iron partitioning in continentally derived particulates (674 citations)
  • Late-Neoproterozoic deep-ocean oxygenation and the rise of animal life. (650 citations)

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

His main research concerns Anoxic waters, Geochemistry, Paleontology, Environmental chemistry and Oceanography. His research integrates issues of Earth science, Biogeochemical cycle, Water column, Precambrian and Upwelling in his study of Anoxic waters. His Geochemistry course of study focuses on Seawater and Redox.

His Paleontology study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Deep sea. His Environmental chemistry research integrates issues from Organic matter, Ecology and Mineralogy. His work in the fields of Oceanography, such as Biogeochemistry, intersects with other areas such as Environmental science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Anoxic waters (31.34%)
  • Geochemistry (28.36%)
  • Paleontology (20.90%)

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

  • Anoxic waters (31.34%)
  • Geochemistry (28.36%)
  • Environmental chemistry (21.39%)

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

Simon W. Poulton mainly investigates Anoxic waters, Geochemistry, Environmental chemistry, Water column and Environmental science. His study on Anoxic waters also encompasses disciplines like

  • Magnetite most often made with reference to Sediment,
  • Nitrogen cycle that intertwine with fields like Nitrate and Isotopes of nitrogen. His Geochemistry study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Seawater and Oil shale.

He combines subjects such as Carbonate minerals and Genetic algorithm with his study of Environmental chemistry. His biological study deals with issues like Anomaly, which deal with fields such as Paleontology. The various areas that Simon W. Poulton examines in his Biogeochemical cycle study include Syntrophy, Earth science and Biogeochemistry.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The iron paleoredox proxies: A guide to the pitfalls, problems and proper practice (75 citations)
  • Stepwise oxygenation of the Paleozoic atmosphere. (52 citations)
  • Oxygenation of the Mesoproterozoic ocean and the evolution of complex eukaryotes (52 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Paleontology

Simon W. Poulton mostly deals with Environmental science, Anoxic waters, Geochemistry, Environmental chemistry and Water column. His Anoxic waters study combines topics in areas such as Structural basin, Period, Ocean chemistry and Archean. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Oil shale and Oxygen minimum zone.

His Water column research incorporates themes from Sedimentary depositional environment, Deep sea, Phanerozoic and Pyrite. His study brings together the fields of Precambrian and Pyrite. His research in Biogeochemical cycle intersects with topics in Earth science and Biogeochemistry.
