Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Aerosol
  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen

Urs Baltensperger mainly focuses on Aerosol, Environmental chemistry, Atmospheric sciences, Particulates and Meteorology. The Aerosol study combines topics in areas such as Particle, Mass spectrometry, Analytical chemistry, Nucleation and Mineralogy. His Environmental chemistry research incorporates elements of Organic matter, Aerosol mass spectrometry, Combustion and Nitrate.

His study explores the link between Atmospheric sciences and topics such as Aethalometer that cross with problems in Seasonality. His Particulates study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Mineral dust, Air pollution and Relative humidity. His work on Air quality index and Haze as part of his general Meteorology study is frequently connected to Biogenic emissions, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

His most cited work include:

  • The formation, properties and impact of secondary organic aerosol: current and emerging issues (2343 citations)
  • Evolution of Organic Aerosols in the Atmosphere (2184 citations)
  • High secondary aerosol contribution to particulate pollution during haze events in China (2110 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Aerosol, Atmospheric sciences, Environmental chemistry, Analytical chemistry and Particulates. The subject of his Aerosol research is within the realm of Meteorology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Climatology, Atmosphere, Radiative forcing, Planetary boundary layer and Particle number in addition to Atmospheric sciences.

His Environmental chemistry study deals with Sulfate intersecting with Nitrate. His Analytical chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Ion, Mineralogy, Differential mobility analyzer and Relative humidity. As a part of the same scientific study, Urs Baltensperger usually deals with the Particulates, concentrating on Air quality index and frequently concerns with Ozone.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Aerosol (70.23%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (31.15%)
  • Environmental chemistry (25.34%)

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

  • Aerosol (70.23%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (31.15%)
  • Environmental chemistry (25.34%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Aerosol, Atmospheric sciences, Environmental chemistry, Particulates and Analytical chemistry. His Aerosol research is included under the broader classification of Meteorology. His Atmospheric sciences research includes elements of Planetary boundary layer, CAMX, Radiative forcing and Relative humidity.

His Environmental chemistry study also includes

  • Combustion together with Stove, Haze and Total organic carbon,
  • Chemical composition which intersects with area such as Spectrometer. His research integrates issues of Air pollution, NOx, Pollutant and Air quality index in his study of Particulates. He has included themes like Ionization, Absorption, Ammonium sulfate and Nucleation in his Analytical chemistry study.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The role of low-volatility organic compounds in initial particle growth in the atmosphere (271 citations)
  • Ion-induced nucleation of pure biogenic particles (270 citations)
  • New particle formation in the free troposphere: A question of chemistry and timing. (204 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Aerosol

His main research concerns Aerosol, Environmental chemistry, Particulates, Atmospheric sciences and Analytical chemistry. His Aerosol study improves the overall literature in Meteorology. His Environmental chemistry study incorporates themes from Biomass burning, Combustion, Primary and Chemical composition.

His Particulates research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Air quality index, Total organic carbon, Seasonality and Gasoline. The Atmospheric sciences study combines topics in areas such as Relative humidity and Particle number. His study in Analytical chemistry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ionization, Ammonium sulfate and Atmospheric pressure.
