Fellow of the Geological Society of America

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology
  • Oceanography

Thomas J. Algeo spends much of his time researching Oceanography, Extinction event, Paleontology, Permian and Permian–Triassic extinction event. His study in Oceanography is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Organic matter and Sediment. His work deals with themes such as Marine ecosystem, Total organic carbon, Volcano and Early Triassic, which intersect with Extinction event.

As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Paleontology, focusing on Sea level and, on occasion, Tectonics and Orogeny. Thomas J. Algeo combines subjects such as Sedimentary rock, Hydrography, Benthic zone and Facies with his study of Anoxic waters. The study incorporates disciplines such as Sedimentary depositional environment, Trace element and Mineralogy, Pyrite in addition to Seawater.

His most cited work include:

  • Trace metals as paleoredox and paleoproductivity proxies: An update (1766 citations)
  • Trace-element behavior and redox facies in core shales of Upper Pennsylvanian Kansas-type cyclothems (794 citations)
  • Mo–total organic carbon covariation in modern anoxic marine environments: Implications for analysis of paleoredox and paleohydrographic conditions (601 citations)

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

Thomas J. Algeo mostly deals with Geochemistry, Paleontology, Extinction event, Oceanography and Permian. His research combines Seawater and Geochemistry. In his study, Organic matter is inextricably linked to Total organic carbon, which falls within the broad field of Paleontology.

His Extinction event study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Volcano, Earth science and Early Triassic. His Oceanography study combines topics in areas such as Glacial period and Carbon cycle. His Anoxic waters research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Water column, Sediment and Benthic zone.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (66.24%)
  • Paleontology (55.72%)
  • Extinction event (38.48%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (66.24%)
  • Sedimentary rock (19.06%)
  • Weathering (19.42%)

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

Thomas J. Algeo mainly investigates Geochemistry, Sedimentary rock, Weathering, Oceanography and Total organic carbon. His work carried out in the field of Geochemistry brings together such families of science as Period, Siliciclastic, Permian, Sediment and Dissolved organic carbon. His Sediment research focuses on Facies and how it connects with Authigenic and Oil shale.

Sedimentary rock is a primary field of his research addressed under Paleontology. His Oceanography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Glacial period, δ34S and Extinction event. His Total organic carbon research includes elements of Earth science and Anoxic waters.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Redox classification and calibration of redox thresholds in sedimentary systems (62 citations)
  • Redox classification and calibration of redox thresholds in sedimentary systems (62 citations)
  • A re-assessment of elemental proxies for paleoredox analysis (60 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Ecology
  • Paleontology

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Total organic carbon, Geochemistry, Sedimentary rock, Diagenesis and Earth science. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Late Miocene, Intertropical Convergence Zone and Anoxic waters. The various areas that he examines in his Geochemistry study include Structural basin and Upwelling.

His Sedimentary rock research integrates issues from Organic matter, Sediment and Brackish water. His study on Paleosalinity also encompasses disciplines like

  • Sill that intertwine with fields like Hydrography and Oceanography,
  • Facies together with Water column. His East Asian Monsoon research includes themes of Paleontology and Isotopes of carbon.
