Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Hydrology

Alfred Wüest spends much of his time researching Hydrology, Atmospheric sciences, Hypolimnion, Stratification and Boundary layer. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Atmosphere, Convective mixing, Sedimentation, Sediment and Water column. Alfred Wüest combines subjects such as Eddy covariance and Shortwave radiation with his study of Atmospheric sciences.

His study in the fields of Epilimnion under the domain of Hypolimnion overlaps with other disciplines such as TRACER. His studies in Stratification integrate themes in fields like Kinetic energy, Downwelling and Turbulence kinetic energy. His research investigates the connection with Boundary layer and areas like Turbulence which intersect with concerns in Dissipation.

His most cited work include:

  • Fate of rising methane bubbles in stratified waters: How much methane reaches the atmosphere? (401 citations)
  • SMALL-SCALE HYDRODYNAMICS IN LAKES (382 citations)
  • Disrupting biogeochemical cycles - Consequences of damming (324 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Hydrology, Atmospheric sciences, Stratification, Hypolimnion and Oceanography. His Hydrology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Sediment, Nutrient, Water column and Hydropower. His Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Internal wave, Eddy covariance, Convection, Convective mixing and Turbulence.

His study looks at the relationship between Stratification and topics such as Climate change, which overlap with Epilimnion. He interconnects Environmental chemistry, Organic matter and Trophic level in the investigation of issues within Hypolimnion. In general Oceanography study, his work on Shore often relates to the realm of Ocean gyre, thereby connecting several areas of interest.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Hydrology (53.16%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (29.75%)
  • Stratification (28.80%)

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

  • Atmospheric sciences (29.75%)
  • Hypolimnion (27.53%)
  • Remote sensing (13.61%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Atmospheric sciences, Hypolimnion, Remote sensing, Water quality and Convection. His Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Stratification, Climate change, Turbulence, Mixed layer and Upwelling. His Stratification study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Hydropower.

His Hypolimnion research integrates issues from Environmental chemistry and Organic matter. His Organic matter research focuses on Acoustic Doppler current profiler and how it relates to Sediment. His Convective mixing study in the realm of Convection interacts with subjects such as Confined water.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Convection in Lakes (29 citations)
  • Convection in Lakes (29 citations)
  • Under-ice convection dynamics in a boreal lake (18 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Oceanography
  • Thermodynamics

His primary scientific interests are in Atmospheric sciences, Hypolimnion, Stratification, Convection and Organic matter. His research in Atmospheric sciences focuses on subjects like Upwelling, which are connected to Phytoplankton, Surface water and Internal wave. His Hypolimnion study is concerned with the larger field of Eutrophication.

The concepts of his Stratification study are interwoven with issues in Water quality, Remote sensing, Lake ecosystem and Hydropower. His study in Hydropower is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Hydrology, Thermal, Effects of global warming and Environmental impact assessment. His Organic matter study combines topics in areas such as Acoustic Doppler current profiler, Soil science, Sediment and Water column.
