Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Carbon dioxide
  • Ecology
  • Air pollution

His primary areas of study are Particulates, Aerosol, Air pollution, Environmental chemistry and Air quality index. His Particulates research includes elements of Nitrate, Physical geography, Peninsula and Environmental health. The study incorporates disciplines such as Mediterranean climate, Atmospheric sciences and Seasonality in addition to Aerosol.

His Air pollution research incorporates elements of Environmental engineering, Pollutant, Pollution and Urban area. He combines subjects such as Leaching, Trace element, Apportionment and Coal with his study of Environmental chemistry. Within one scientific family, Xavier Querol focuses on topics pertaining to Ventilation under Air quality index, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Air conditioning.

His most cited work include:

  • A European aerosol phenomenology—1: physical characteristics of particulate matter at kerbside, urban, rural and background sites in Europe (955 citations)
  • Source apportionment of particulate matter in Europe: A review of methods and results (641 citations)
  • Synthesis of zeolites from coal fly ash: an overview (626 citations)

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

Xavier Querol mainly focuses on Particulates, Aerosol, Air quality index, Air pollution and Environmental chemistry. His research in Particulates intersects with topics in Environmental engineering, Physical geography and Chemical composition. His Aerosol research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Mediterranean climate, Atmospheric sciences and Pollution.

His study in Atmospheric sciences is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Urban background, Meteorology and Particle number. His work carried out in the field of Air pollution brings together such families of science as Urban area, Pollutant and Environmental health. The concepts of his Environmental chemistry study are interwoven with issues in Nitrate, Trace element, Mineralogy and Coal.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Particulates (30.06%)
  • Aerosol (23.95%)
  • Air quality index (21.92%)

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

  • Air quality index (21.92%)
  • Particulates (30.06%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (18.08%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Air quality index, Particulates, Atmospheric sciences, Air pollution and Pollutant. The Air quality index study combines topics in areas such as Metropolitan area and Pollution. His studies in Particulates integrate themes in fields like Environmental chemistry, Desert dust and Environmental protection.

His work is dedicated to discovering how Environmental chemistry, Fly ash are connected with Coal combustion products and Coal and other disciplines. The various areas that he examines in his Atmospheric sciences study include Mineral dust, Sea salt, Aerosol, Mediterranean climate and Ultrafine particle. His Air pollution research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Public transport and Environmental health.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Changes in air quality during the lockdown in Barcelona (Spain) one month into the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic. (246 citations)
  • How can airborne transmission of COVID-19 indoors be minimised? (236 citations)
  • Chemical profiling of PM10 from urban road dust. (43 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Air pollution

Xavier Querol mostly deals with Air quality index, Particulates, Air pollution, Ultrafine particle and Atmospheric sciences. His work deals with themes such as Toxicology, Industrial emission, Pollution and Fossil fuel combustion, which intersect with Air quality index. Xavier Querol has researched Particulates in several fields, including Environmental chemistry, Urban transportation and Environmental protection.

His Air pollution study incorporates themes from Pollutant, Ischemic stroke and Environmental health. His Ultrafine particle research also works with subjects such as

  • Particle number that connect with fields like Environmental engineering and Aerodynamic diameter,
  • Urban background which is related to area like Urban area, Nucleation and Particle-size distribution. His Atmospheric sciences research integrates issues from Advection, Apportionment, Carbonaceous matter and Aerosol.
