Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oxygen
  • Organic chemistry
  • Ecology

Sorption, Environmental chemistry, Mineralogy, Porous medium and Groundwater are his primary areas of study. The Sorption study combines topics in areas such as Desorption, Organic matter, Soil water and Phenanthrene. His Environmental chemistry study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Sediment, Dissolution, Hydrology, Coal tar and Gasworks.

His studies in Mineralogy integrate themes in fields like Isotope analysis, Fractionation, Isotope fractionation and Tortuosity. Peter Grathwohl works mostly in the field of Porous medium, limiting it down to concerns involving Mechanics and, occasionally, Geotechnical engineering. Peter Grathwohl focuses mostly in the field of Groundwater, narrowing it down to topics relating to Plume and, in certain cases, Mixing and Aquifer.

His most cited work include:

  • Influence of organic matter from soils and sediments from various origins on the sorption of some chlorinated aliphatic hydrocarbons: implications on KOC correlations. (368 citations)
  • Diffusion in Natural Porous Media: Contaminant Transport, Sorption/Desorption and Dissolution Kinetics (368 citations)
  • New modeling paradigms for the sorption of hydrophobic organic chemicals to heterogeneous carbonaceous matter in soils, sediments, and rocks. (323 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Environmental chemistry, Groundwater, Hydrology, Sorption and Aquifer. His Environmental chemistry research focuses on subjects like Contamination, which are linked to BTEX. Peter Grathwohl works mostly in the field of Groundwater, limiting it down to topics relating to Plume and, in certain cases, Porous medium, Mechanics, Mixing and Dilution, as a part of the same area of interest.

Peter Grathwohl works mostly in the field of Porous medium, limiting it down to topics relating to Mineralogy and, in certain cases, Saturation. His work deals with themes such as Desorption, Organic matter, Chemical engineering and Phenanthrene, which intersect with Sorption. The Aquifer study combines topics in areas such as Coal tar and Dissolution.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (27.55%)
  • Groundwater (26.53%)
  • Hydrology (18.37%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Environmental chemistry (27.55%)
  • Pollutant (13.27%)
  • Sorption (17.35%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Environmental chemistry, Pollutant, Sorption, Aquifer and Mechanics. His research integrates issues of Soil water, Contamination and Pyrene in his study of Environmental chemistry. His Pollutant research includes themes of Drainage basin, Sediment, River bed, Hydrology and Sediment yield.

Peter Grathwohl has researched Sorption in several fields, including Mass transfer, Thermodynamics, Microplastics and Partition coefficient. His Aquifer study is concerned with the field of Groundwater as a whole. His Mechanics research includes elements of Capillary fringe and Porous medium.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Transitory microbial habitat in the hyperarid Atacama Desert (83 citations)
  • Shift in Mass Transfer of Wastewater Contaminants from Microplastics in the Presence of Dissolved Substances (49 citations)
  • Using total suspended solids (TSS) and turbidity as proxies for evaluation of metal transport in river water (43 citations)

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

  • Oxygen
  • Organic chemistry
  • Ecology

His primary areas of investigation include Environmental chemistry, Pollutant, Sorption, Sediment and Drainage basin. His primary area of study in Environmental chemistry is in the field of Fluoranthene. The various areas that he examines in his Pollutant study include Environmental monitoring, Persistence, Sewage treatment and Ecosystem.

His study in Sorption is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Mass transfer, Microplastics, Polyethylene and Partition coefficient. Peter Grathwohl focuses mostly in the field of Mass transfer, narrowing it down to matters related to Particle size and, in some cases, Freundlich equation, Thermodynamics, Desorption and Adsorption. His Sediment study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Hydrology and Turbidity.
