Nobuyoshi Yamashita focuses on Environmental chemistry, Surface water, Contamination, Bay and Oceanography. His Environmental chemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Wastewater, Particulates and Sewage treatment. The concepts of his Surface water study are interwoven with issues in Seawater, Water column and Arctic.

His Contamination research incorporates elements of Firefighting, Waste management and Current. He has included themes like Estuary, Deposition, Pollution and Wet season in his Bay study. His studies in Oceanography integrate themes in fields like Climatology and Flood myth.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Bisphenol A and other bisphenol analogues including BPS and BPF in surface water samples from Japan, China, Korea and India. (218 citations)
  • Occurrence, distribution and ecological risk assessment of multiple classes of UV filters in surface waters from different countries. (151 citations)
  • Mass loading and removal of pharmaceuticals and personal care products, including psychoactive and illicit drugs and artificial sweeteners, in five sewage treatment plants in India (79 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Organic chemistry
  • Environmental chemistry

His main research concerns Environmental chemistry, Sewage treatment, Contamination, Surface water and Population density. Nobuyoshi Yamashita has researched Environmental chemistry in several fields, including Seawater and Dry weight. His Sewage treatment research integrates issues from Effluent and Sewage.

His Effluent research includes themes of Wastewater and Perfluorooctanoic acid. His work carried out in the field of Surface water brings together such families of science as Ecology and Arctic.
