2017 - Fellow of the Royal Society, United Kingdom

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Ecology
  • Aerosol

Roy M. Harrison mostly deals with Aerosol, Particulates, Environmental chemistry, Environmental engineering and Air pollution. The various areas that he examines in his Aerosol study include Seasonality, Nitrate, Atmospheric sciences and Particle number. His study looks at the relationship between Particulates and fields such as Pollution, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

His work deals with themes such as Atmosphere, Nitrogen dioxide, Ammonium, Chemical composition and Sea salt, which intersect with Environmental chemistry. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Environmental engineering, narrowing it down to issues related to the Urban area, and often Physical geography. His study in Air pollution is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both NOx, Hydrocarbon, Air quality index and Environmental health.

His most cited work include:

  • Source Apportionment of Atmospheric Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons Collected from an Urban Location in Birmingham, U.K. (1010 citations)
  • A European aerosol phenomenology—1: physical characteristics of particulate matter at kerbside, urban, rural and background sites in Europe (955 citations)
  • Sources and properties of non-exhaust particulate matter from road traffic: a review. (870 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Aerosol, Environmental chemistry, Particulates, Atmospheric sciences and Air pollution. His studies examine the connections between Aerosol and genetics, as well as such issues in Particle number, with regards to Particle size and Particle-size distribution. The Environmental chemistry study combines topics in areas such as Atmosphere, Ammonium, Chemical composition, Mass spectrometry and NOx.

His study ties his expertise on Environmental engineering together with the subject of Particulates. His Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Atmospheric chemistry, Urban background, Ultrafine particle and Nucleation. In his work, Environmental protection is strongly intertwined with Air quality index, which is a subfield of Air pollution.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Aerosol (41.43%)
  • Environmental chemistry (36.02%)
  • Particulates (32.86%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Atmospheric sciences (29.29%)
  • Aerosol (41.43%)
  • Particulates (32.86%)

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

Atmospheric sciences, Aerosol, Particulates, Environmental chemistry and Air quality index are his primary areas of study. The concepts of his Atmospheric sciences study are interwoven with issues in Pollutant, Nucleation, Urban background, Ultrafine particle and Particle number. His Aerosol research integrates issues from Haze, Sea ice, Sulfate and Mass spectrometry.

His Particulates research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Trace gas, Environmental protection, Diesel engine, Wood burning and Particle size. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Organic matter, NOx, Composition and Organic compound. His Air quality index research incorporates themes from Air pollution, Environmental engineering and Pollution.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Introduction to the special issue "in-depth study of air pollution sources and processes within Beijing and its surrounding region (APHH-Beijing)" (56 citations)
  • Global analysis of continental boundary layer new particle formation based on long-term measurements (49 citations)
  • Global analysis of continental boundary layer new particle formation based on long-term measurements (49 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Ecology
  • Statistics

His primary scientific interests are in Atmospheric sciences, Aerosol, Particle number, Particulates and Air quality index. His Atmospheric sciences research incorporates elements of Pollutant, Particle-size distribution, Ultrafine particle, Spatial distribution and Haze. In his study, Environmental chemistry is strongly linked to Coal combustion products, which falls under the umbrella field of Haze.

His research in Aerosol intersects with topics in Mass spectrometry, Sea ice, Arctic and Particle size. He has researched Particulates in several fields, including Range, Northern Hemisphere, Southern Hemisphere and Orders of magnitude. The study incorporates disciplines such as Environmental engineering, Mass concentration, Pollution, Beijing and Air pollution in addition to Air quality index.
