Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • World War II
  • Oxygen
  • Ecology

Paul J. Crutzen mainly investigates Atmospheric sciences, Troposphere, Ozone, Atmospheric chemistry and Atmosphere. Paul J. Crutzen works in the field of Atmospheric sciences, namely Stratosphere. His Troposphere research includes themes of Atmospheric models and Hydrocarbon.

His work deals with themes such as Photodissociation, Photochemistry and NOx, which intersect with Ozone. His Atmospheric chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Nitrogen dioxide, Trace gas, Atmosphere of Earth, Environmental chemistry and Dry season. His studies in Atmosphere integrate themes in fields like Hydrogen production, Ionization, Methanol and Water vapor.

His most cited work include:

  • A safe operating space for humanity (5983 citations)
  • Planetary boundaries: Exploring the safe operating space for humanity (2805 citations)
  • Aerosols, climate, and the hydrological cycle (2662 citations)

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

His main research concerns Atmospheric sciences, Ozone, Troposphere, Stratosphere and Atmosphere. Paul J. Crutzen has included themes like Climatology, Meteorology and Atmospheric chemistry in his Atmospheric sciences study. His research in Atmospheric chemistry tackles topics such as Environmental chemistry which are related to areas like Trace gas.

Analytical chemistry is closely connected to Photodissociation in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Ozone. His Troposphere study deals with Aerosol intersecting with Mineralogy. His Stratosphere research incorporates themes from Chlorine, Water vapor, Atmosphere of Earth and Altitude.
