What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2004-2019)?

  • Atmospheric sciences (52.74%)
  • Aerosol (41.10%)
  • Meteorology (17.12%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Atmospheric sciences, Aerosol, Meteorology, Nucleation and Climate change. Richard P. Turco interconnects Atmosphere and Geoengineering in the investigation of issues within Atmospheric sciences. Aerosol is frequently linked to Nitrogen dioxide in his study.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Chemical physics, Climatology, Troposphere and Cloud condensation nuclei in addition to Nucleation. His work in the fields of Climate change, such as Climate model and Global warming, overlaps with other areas such as Superpower. His research investigates the connection between Climate model and topics such as Stratosphere that intersect with issues in Nuclear winter.

Between 2004 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • An overview of geoengineering of climate using stratospheric sulphate aerosols. (210 citations)
  • Ion-mediated nucleation as an important global source of tropospheric aerosols (134 citations)
  • Climatic consequences of regional nuclear conflicts (90 citations)

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

  • Meteorology
  • World War II
  • Thermodynamics

His primary scientific interests are in Atmospheric sciences, Aerosol, Stratosphere, Nucleation and Atmospheric chemistry. He works in the field of Stratosphere, focusing on Ozone depletion in particular. The Ozone depletion study combines topics in areas such as Global warming, Solar radiation management and Greenhouse gas.

His Nucleation research includes elements of Field campaign, Meteorology and Cloud condensation nuclei. His work deals with themes such as Airshed and Ozone layer, Dobson unit, which intersect with Atmospheric chemistry. His Ozone study incorporates themes from Environmental chemistry, Emission inventory, Air quality index and Environmental engineering.
