Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Oceanography

His scientific interests lie mostly in Oceanography, TEX86, Environmental chemistry, Archaea and Ecology. Stefan Schouten has researched Oceanography in several fields, including Paleontology and Climatology. He has included themes like Crenarchaeota, Paleothermometer, Sediment, Seawater and Membrane lipids in his TEX86 study.

His research on Environmental chemistry also deals with topics like

  • Soil water which connect with Sedimentary rock,
  • Kerogen and Organic matter most often made with reference to Photic zone. His studies deal with areas such as Biomarker and Anoxic waters as well as Archaea. His Ecology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Euryarchaeota, Hydrothermal circulation, Nitrogen cycle and Holocene.

His most cited work include:

  • Archaeal nitrification in the ocean (886 citations)
  • A microbial consortium couples anaerobic methane oxidation to denitrification (863 citations)
  • Distributional variations in marine crenarchaeotal membrane lipids: a new tool for reconstructing ancient sea water temperatures? (781 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Oceanography, Environmental chemistry, TEX86, Paleontology and Sea surface temperature. He combines subjects such as Glacial period and Sediment with his study of Oceanography. His research in Environmental chemistry intersects with topics in Ecology, Soil water, Algae, Archaea and Mineralogy.

His Archaea research includes themes of Anaerobic oxidation of methane and Membrane lipids. His TEX86 research incorporates elements of Paleothermometer, Seawater and Crenarchaeota. His Sea surface temperature research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Climate change and Upwelling.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (37.12%)
  • Environmental chemistry (19.45%)
  • TEX86 (15.56%)

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

  • Oceanography (37.12%)
  • Environmental chemistry (19.45%)
  • Sea surface temperature (11.51%)

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

Stefan Schouten mainly focuses on Oceanography, Environmental chemistry, Sea surface temperature, TEX86 and Water column. His Oceanography study incorporates themes from Glacial period, Structural basin and Seasonality. Stefan Schouten interconnects Salinity, Archaeol, Algae, Methane and Carbon in the investigation of issues within Environmental chemistry.

His Sea surface temperature study deals with Sea ice intersecting with Marine isotope stage. His research integrates issues of Paleontology, Cretaceous, Water mass and Thaumarchaeota in his study of TEX86. Stefan Schouten works mostly in the field of Water column, limiting it down to topics relating to Pelagic zone and, in certain cases, Sediment.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Synchronous tropical and polar temperature evolution in the Eocene (85 citations)
  • Southern Ocean warming and Wilkes Land ice sheet retreat during the mid-Miocene (34 citations)
  • Molecular fossils from phytoplankton reveal secular Pco2 trend over the Phanerozoic. (29 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Organic chemistry

Oceanography, TEX86, Sea surface temperature, Archaea and Pelagic zone are his primary areas of study. His Oceanography research includes elements of Palynology, Glacial period, Interglacial and Sediment. His TEX86 study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Paleontology, Cretaceous and Temperature record.

His study looks at the relationship between Archaea and fields such as Microorganism, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. Stefan Schouten interconnects Thaumarchaeota and Water column in the investigation of issues within Pelagic zone. His work in Archaeol tackles topics such as Environmental chemistry which are related to areas like Carbon fixation, Carbon cycle and Organic matter.
