Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Ecosystem

Xabier Irigoien mostly deals with Oceanography, Phytoplankton, Ecology, Biomass and Fishery. His study in Plankton and Debris falls within the category of Oceanography. His research in Plankton intersects with topics in Ecosystem and Atmospheric sciences.

His Phytoplankton research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Marine ecosystem and Upwelling. The various areas that Xabier Irigoien examines in his Biomass study include Trophic level and Zooplankton. His Trophic level research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Productivity and Pelagic zone, Mesopelagic zone.

His most cited work include:

  • Mesopelagic fish biomass and trophic efficiency of the open ocean (1910 citations)
  • Plastic debris in the open ocean (1133 citations)
  • Scaling the metabolic balance of the oceans. (382 citations)

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

Xabier Irigoien mainly focuses on Oceanography, Ecology, Zooplankton, Fishery and Plankton. As part of his studies on Oceanography, he often connects relevant subjects like Trophic level. His study looks at the intersection of Ecology and topics like Animal science with Calanus helgolandicus.

His Fishery study frequently involves adjacent topics like European anchovy. His study focuses on the intersection of Phytoplankton and fields such as Calanus finmarchicus with connections in the field of Reproduction. His Bay research includes elements of Abundance, Anchovy, Spatial distribution and Predation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (43.14%)
  • Ecology (42.75%)
  • Zooplankton (19.22%)

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

  • Oceanography (43.14%)
  • Ecology (42.75%)
  • Mesopelagic zone (7.84%)

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

Xabier Irigoien mainly investigates Oceanography, Ecology, Mesopelagic zone, Pelagic zone and Zooplankton. He incorporates Oceanography and Trace element in his research. His work carried out in the field of Mesopelagic zone brings together such families of science as Abundance and Diel vertical migration.

His Diel vertical migration study combines topics in areas such as Dissolved organic carbon and Plankton. Pelagic zone is a subfield of Fishery that Xabier Irigoien studies. His studies deal with areas such as Phytoplankton, Nutrient, Aquatic ecosystem and Upwelling as well as Zooplankton.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global spatial risk assessment of sharks under the footprint of fisheries (77 citations)
  • Large-scale ocean connectivity and planktonic body size (40 citations)
  • The Mesopelagic Scattering Layer: A Hotspot for Heterotrophic Prokaryotes in the Red Sea Twilight Zone (21 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Ecosystem

His primary scientific interests are in Oceanography, Coral reef, Library science, Fishing and Seagrass. The concepts of his Oceanography study are interwoven with issues in Fish stock and Picoplankton. His study looks at the relationship between Fish stock and topics such as Gonadosomatic Index, which overlap with Bay.

The Bay study combines topics in areas such as Anchovy, Climate change, Climate change scenario and Species distribution. His Coral reef research incorporates themes from Natural, Indian ocean, Habitat, Rift and Endemism. His Seagrass study contributes to a more complete understanding of Ecology.
