Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Organic chemistry
  • Carbon dioxide

Thomas Karl spends much of his time researching Environmental chemistry, Atmospheric chemistry, Aerosol, Atmospheric sciences and Mass spectrometry. His work carried out in the field of Environmental chemistry brings together such families of science as Mixing ratio, Volatile organic compound, Hydrology, Air pollution and Ozone. Thomas Karl has included themes like Vegetation, Acetaldehyde, Ecosystem and Troposphere in his Atmospheric chemistry study.

Thomas Karl interconnects Characterization and Amazonian in the investigation of issues within Aerosol. His studies deal with areas such as Atmosphere, Climatology, NOx and Air quality index as well as Atmospheric sciences. His Atmosphere study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Chemical transport model, Biosphere and Plant functional type.

His most cited work include:

  • Estimates of global terrestrial isoprene emissions using MEGAN (Model of Emissions of Gases and Aerosols from Nature) (2631 citations)
  • Emission factors for open and domestic biomass burning for use in atmospheric models (950 citations)
  • An Introduction to Trends in Extreme Weather and Climate Events: Observations, Socioeconomic Impacts, Terrestrial Ecological Impacts, and Model Projections* (434 citations)

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

Environmental chemistry, Atmospheric sciences, Aerosol, Eddy covariance and Volatile organic compound are his primary areas of study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Atmosphere, Nitrogen, Mass spectrometry, Carbon and Ozone. His Atmospheric sciences research incorporates themes from Atmospheric chemistry, Meteorology, Air quality index, Ecosystem and NOx.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Aerosol, Reactive nitrogen is strongly linked to Troposphere. His Eddy covariance study also includes

  • Flux which connect with Mass spectrum and Analytical chemistry,
  • Methanol that connect with fields like Acetone. His Volatile organic compound research integrates issues from Hydrology, Air pollution and Hexanal.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (40.99%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (34.68%)
  • Aerosol (26.13%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Atmospheric sciences (34.68%)
  • Eddy covariance (25.23%)
  • Environmental chemistry (40.99%)

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

His primary areas of study are Atmospheric sciences, Eddy covariance, Environmental chemistry, Air quality index and Atmospheric chemistry. His Atmospheric sciences research includes themes of Aerosol, Air pollution, NOx, Flux and Ozone. His Eddy covariance study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Trace gas.

As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Environmental chemistry, focusing on Atmosphere and, on occasion, Terrestrial plant and Ketone. The Air quality index study combines topics in areas such as Pollutant, Hydrology, Reactivity, Chemical process and Environmental monitoring. His Atmospheric chemistry research includes elements of Water stress and Soil wetness, Water content.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Urban flux measurements reveal a large pool of oxygenated volatile organic compound emissions. (33 citations)
  • Secondary organic aerosol formation from in situ OH, O 3 , and NO 3 oxidation of ambient forest air in an oxidation flow reactor (30 citations)
  • Comprehensive characterization of atmospheric organic carbon at a forested site (26 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Organic chemistry
  • Carbon dioxide

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Atmospheric sciences, Atmospheric chemistry, Environmental chemistry, Eddy covariance and Atmosphere. His study in Atmospheric sciences is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Photosynthesis, Carbon dioxide, Air pollution, Flux and Ozone. The concepts of his Air pollution study are interwoven with issues in Metropolitan area, NOx and Volatile organic compound.

His Atmospheric chemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Environmental monitoring, Reactivity and Chemical process. His research integrates issues of Biomass, Air quality index, Vegetation, Understory and Monoterpene in his study of Environmental chemistry. His work in Atmosphere tackles topics such as Aerosol which are related to areas like Nanoparticle and Nanotechnology.
