Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Aerosol
  • Meteorology
  • Statistics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Aerosol, Environmental engineering, Environmental chemistry, Air quality index and Atmospheric sciences. In the field of Aerosol, his study on Mineral dust overlaps with subjects such as Urban area. The Environmental engineering study combines topics in areas such as Urban background, Soil water, Coarse particle and Trace metal.

His work deals with themes such as Leaching, Trace element and Coal, which intersect with Environmental chemistry. His Air quality index study incorporates themes from Ventilation, Particle-size distribution, Indoor air quality and Particle type. His Atmospheric sciences research incorporates elements of Biomass burning, Road dust, Particle number and Spatial variability.

His most cited work include:

  • Source apportionment of particulate matter in Europe: A review of methods and results (641 citations)
  • Synthesis of zeolites from coal fly ash: an overview (626 citations)
  • A European aerosol phenomenology 3: Physical and chemical characteristics of particulate matter from 60 rural, urban, and kerbside sites across Europe (527 citations)

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

His main research concerns Aerosol, Atmospheric sciences, Air quality index, Environmental chemistry and Environmental engineering. His study in the fields of Mineral dust under the domain of Aerosol overlaps with other disciplines such as Urban area and Nitrate. The concepts of his Mineral dust study are interwoven with issues in Climatology and Seasonality.

Andrés Alastuey has researched Atmospheric sciences in several fields, including Air mass, Meteorology, Particle number and Ultrafine particle. His study ties his expertise on Physical geography together with the subject of Air quality index. As part of one scientific family, Andrés Alastuey deals mainly with the area of Environmental chemistry, narrowing it down to issues related to the Mineralogy, and often Trace element, Fly ash and Geochemistry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Aerosol (38.87%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (28.54%)
  • Air quality index (25.30%)

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

  • Atmospheric sciences (28.54%)
  • Aerosol (38.87%)
  • Air quality index (25.30%)

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

Andrés Alastuey mainly focuses on Atmospheric sciences, Aerosol, Air quality index, Particle number and Environmental chemistry. In Atmospheric sciences, he works on issues like Wind speed, which are connected to Relative humidity. The Single-scattering albedo research Andrés Alastuey does as part of his general Aerosol study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Nitrate, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Mineral dust, Physical geography, TRACER and Environmental protection in addition to Air quality index. His studies in Particle number integrate themes in fields like Ultrafine particle, Public transport and Meteorology. Andrés Alastuey focuses mostly in the field of Environmental chemistry, narrowing it down to topics relating to Urban background and, in certain cases, Street canyon and Apportionment.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Changes in air quality during the lockdown in Barcelona (Spain) one month into the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic. (246 citations)
  • Monitoring the impact of desert dust outbreaks for air quality for health studies (42 citations)
  • Short-term effects of ultrafine particles on daily mortality by primary vehicle exhaust versus secondary origin in three Spanish cities (30 citations)

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

  • Meteorology
  • Statistics
  • China

His primary areas of investigation include Air quality index, Atmospheric sciences, Aerosol, Particle number and Ultrafine particle. His Air quality index research includes themes of Urban transportation, Industrial emission and Fossil fuel combustion. Andrés Alastuey studied Atmospheric sciences and Wind speed that intersect with Chemical transport model, Weather Research and Forecasting Model, Seasonality and Troposphere.

His Aerosol study combines topics in areas such as Chemical speciation, Radiative transfer and Scattering. Andrés Alastuey works mostly in the field of Particle number, limiting it down to topics relating to Meteorology and, in certain cases, Public transport and Albedo, as a part of the same area of interest. Andrés Alastuey has researched Ultrafine particle in several fields, including Particle, Environmental engineering and Cycling.
