What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • Meteorology
  • Global warming

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Atmospheric sciences, Aerosol, Meteorology, Climatology and Radiative forcing. Olivier Boucher has researched Atmospheric sciences in several fields, including Global warming, Climate change, Radiative transfer and Cloud forcing. His Aerosol research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Forcing and Deposition.

His Meteorology study deals with General Circulation Model intersecting with Microphysics and Air pollution. Olivier Boucher combines subjects such as Solar radiation management, Cloud computing, Global climate and Water cycle with his study of Climatology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Optical depth and Cloud fraction in addition to Radiative forcing.

His most cited work include:

  • A satellite view of aerosols in the climate system (1567 citations)
  • Estimates of the direct and indirect radiative forcing due to tropospheric aerosols: A review (1366 citations)
  • Analysis and quantification of the diversities of aerosol life cycles within AeroCom (822 citations)

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

Olivier Boucher spends much of his time researching Atmospheric sciences, Aerosol, Climatology, Radiative forcing and Meteorology. While the research belongs to areas of Atmospheric sciences, he spends his time largely on the problem of Precipitation, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Water cycle. His study in Aerosol is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Atmosphere, Radiative transfer and Albedo.

His work in the fields of Climatology, such as Troposphere, intersects with other areas such as Latitude. His biological study focuses on Cloud forcing. His specific area of interest is Meteorology, where Olivier Boucher studies Air quality index.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Atmospheric sciences (59.57%)
  • Aerosol (48.82%)
  • Climatology (35.48%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Atmospheric sciences (59.57%)
  • Aerosol (48.82%)
  • Greenhouse gas (13.55%)

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

His main research concerns Atmospheric sciences, Aerosol, Greenhouse gas, Precipitation and Forcing. He interconnects Climate change, Coupled model intercomparison project, Carbon cycle, Radiation and Fossil fuel combustion in the investigation of issues within Atmospheric sciences. His Aerosol study results in a more complete grasp of Meteorology.

His Precipitation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Sulfate aerosol, Climate model, Global warming, Water vapor and General Circulation Model. The concepts of his Global warming study are interwoven with issues in Climatology and Diurnal temperature variation. His Forcing research incorporates themes from Cloud cover, Radiative forcing and Sea surface temperature.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Bounding global aerosol radiative forcing of climate change (80 citations)
  • Near-real-time monitoring of global CO2 emissions reveals the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. (78 citations)
  • Presentation and evaluation of the IPSL‐CM6A‐LR climate model (76 citations)

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

  • Climate change
  • Global warming
  • Carbon dioxide

Olivier Boucher mainly focuses on Atmospheric sciences, Aerosol, Climatology, Climate model and Forcing. His Atmospheric sciences research focuses on Albedo in particular. Aerosol is a primary field of his research addressed under Meteorology.

Olivier Boucher has included themes like Environmental monitoring, Climate change and State in his Climatology study. His Climate model research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Troposphere and Greenhouse gas. His Forcing study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Global warming and Radiative forcing.
