2015 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)


What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Organic chemistry
  • Botany

His primary areas of investigation include Atmospheric sciences, Meteorology, Environmental chemistry, Aerosol and Ozone. His Atmospheric sciences study incorporates themes from Atmosphere, Climatology, Vegetation and Volatile organic compound. His work in Meteorology tackles topics such as Photosynthetically active radiation which are related to areas like Flux and Growing season.

His Environmental chemistry research also works with subjects such as

  • Atmospheric chemistry, which have a strong connection to Acetaldehyde,
  • Hydrocarbon together with NOx. Alex Guenther works mostly in the field of Ozone, limiting it down to concerns involving Trace gas and, occasionally, Pollutant. In general Air quality index study, his work on CAMX often relates to the realm of Isoprene synthase, thereby connecting several areas of interest.

His most cited work include:

  • A global model of natural volatile organic compound emissions (3127 citations)
  • Estimates of global terrestrial isoprene emissions using MEGAN (Model of Emissions of Gases and Aerosols from Nature) (2631 citations)
  • The model of emissions of gases and aerosols from nature version 2.1 (MEGAN2.1): An extended and updated framework for modeling biogenic emissions (1334 citations)

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

Alex Guenther mostly deals with Atmospheric sciences, Environmental chemistry, Aerosol, Meteorology and Ozone. His Atmospheric sciences research includes themes of Atmosphere, Atmospheric chemistry, Eddy covariance, Air quality index and Vegetation. His Atmosphere research integrates issues from Canopy, Biosphere and Deposition.

His research in Air quality index focuses on subjects like Climatology, which are connected to Seasonality and Climate model. His study focuses on the intersection of Environmental chemistry and fields such as Volatile organic compound with connections in the field of Air pollution. His Aerosol research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Particle and Mass spectrometry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Atmospheric sciences (45.62%)
  • Environmental chemistry (29.87%)
  • Aerosol (22.90%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Atmospheric sciences (45.62%)
  • Environmental chemistry (29.87%)
  • Ozone (16.28%)

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

Alex Guenther mainly focuses on Atmospheric sciences, Environmental chemistry, Ozone, Air quality index and Aerosol. His Atmospheric sciences study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Atmosphere, Atmospheric chemistry, Canopy, Amazon rainforest and Vegetation. Alex Guenther has researched Environmental chemistry in several fields, including Biomass burning, Reactivity, Flux and Mass spectrometry.

Alex Guenther interconnects Morning, NOx, Trace gas and Air pollution in the investigation of issues within Ozone. The various areas that he examines in his Air quality index study include Climatology, Deposition, Greenhouse gas and Volatile organic compound. His study in Aerosol is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Volatility, Particle, Terrestrial ecosystem and Troposphere.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Recent advances in understanding secondary organic aerosol: Implications for global climate forcing (204 citations)
  • The Green Ocean Amazon Experiment (GoAmazon2014/5) observes pollution affecting gases, aerosols, clouds, and rainfall over the rain forest (72 citations)
  • Urban pollution greatly enhances formation of natural aerosols over the Amazon rainforest (41 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Organic chemistry
  • Quantum mechanics

His primary scientific interests are in Atmospheric sciences, Atmospheric chemistry, Air quality index, Environmental chemistry and Ozone. Alex Guenther combines subjects such as Atmosphere, Eddy covariance, Vegetation, Greenhouse gas and Monoterpene with his study of Atmospheric sciences. His studies deal with areas such as Biomass, Meteorology, Volatile organic compound and Understory as well as Eddy covariance.

His Atmospheric chemistry research incorporates elements of Chemical transport model, Total organic carbon, Wet season, Amazon rainforest and Energy budget. His Environmental chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biomass burning, Aerosol and Reactivity. His study looks at the intersection of Ozone and topics like Air pollution with Pollutant.
