Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Thermodynamics
  • Meteorology
  • Aerosol

His primary areas of study are Atmospheric sciences, Cirrus, Ice crystals, Aerosol and Environmental science. Atmospheric sciences is closely attributed to Climate model in his work. His Cirrus research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Water vapor and Cloud physics.

The concepts of his Ice crystals study are interwoven with issues in Ice nucleus, Nucleation, Supercooling, Ice cloud and Troposphere. He has researched Aerosol in several fields, including Soot, Atmospheric models and Mineralogy. Environmental science is intertwined with Climatology and Radiative forcing in his research.

His most cited work include:

  • Bounding the role of black carbon in the climate system: A scientific assessment (2916 citations)
  • Single‐particle measurements of midlatitude black carbon and light‐scattering aerosols from the boundary layer to the lower stratosphere (458 citations)
  • Global radiative forcing from contrail cirrus (206 citations)

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

Atmospheric sciences, Cirrus, Environmental science, Aerosol and Meteorology are his primary areas of study. His Atmospheric sciences study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Soot and Water vapor. His research in Cirrus intersects with topics in Climatology, Ice nucleus, Nucleation, Ice cloud and Ice crystals.

His work carried out in the field of Climatology brings together such families of science as General Circulation Model and ECHAM. His Aerosol study combines topics in areas such as Exhaust gas, Middle latitudes, Mineralogy, Analytical chemistry and Saturation. His work in Meteorology tackles topics such as Climate model which are related to areas like Satellite.

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

His primary areas of investigation include Atmospheric sciences, Cirrus, Environmental science, Ice nucleus and Ice crystals. The study incorporates disciplines such as Layer and Aerosol in addition to Atmospheric sciences. His research integrates issues of Climatology and Supersaturation in his study of Cirrus.

His studies deal with areas such as General Circulation Model, Climate system and Climate model as well as Climatology. His Environmental science study overlaps with Radiative forcing, Soot, Global warming, Water vapor and Troposphere. Bernd Kärcher combines subjects such as Lead, Cloud physics and Liquid water content with his study of Ice crystals.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Bounding the role of black carbon in the climate system: A scientific assessment (2916 citations)
  • Cirrus Parcel Model Comparison Project, Phase 1: The Critical Components to Simulate Cirrus Initiation Explicitly (88 citations)
  • Formation and radiative forcing of contrail cirrus (62 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Meteorology
  • Atmosphere of Earth

Bernd Kärcher mostly deals with Cirrus, Atmospheric sciences, Environmental science, Ice nucleus and Climatology. As part of his studies on Cirrus, he frequently links adjacent subjects like Ice crystals. Radiative forcing and Soot are fields of study that intersect with his Environmental science study.

The various areas that he examines in his Climatology study include Climate system and Climate model. His study in the fields of Cloud forcing under the domain of Climate model overlaps with other disciplines such as Carbon, Fossil fuel, Cryosphere and Climate commitment. His work deals with themes such as Stratosphere, Supersaturation and Water vapor, which intersect with Forcing.
