Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Aerosol
  • Oxygen

Yele Sun mainly investigates Aerosol, Environmental chemistry, Sulfate, Nitrate and Atmospheric sciences. His Aerosol study is related to the wider topic of Meteorology. His Environmental chemistry research incorporates themes from Hydrology, Carbon, Levoglucosan and Chemical composition.

Yele Sun interconnects Coal combustion products, Mass concentration, Ozone and Air quality index in the investigation of issues within Sulfate. His Atmospheric sciences research integrates issues from Aerosol mass spectrometry and Pollutant. His Aerosol mass spectrometry research incorporates elements of Northern Hemisphere, Radiative forcing and Hydrocarbon.

His most cited work include:

  • Evolution of Organic Aerosols in the Atmosphere (2184 citations)
  • Evolution of Organic Aerosols in the Atmosphere (2184 citations)
  • Ubiquity and dominance of oxygenated species in organic aerosols in anthropogenically-influenced Northern Hemisphere midlatitudes (1380 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Aerosol, Environmental chemistry, Atmospheric sciences, Beijing and Particulates. His Aerosol study is concerned with the larger field of Meteorology. His research in Environmental chemistry intersects with topics in Chemical composition, Coal combustion products, Mass spectrometry, Carbon and Relative humidity.

His studies deal with areas such as Characterization and Resolution as well as Mass spectrometry. The Atmospheric sciences study which covers Dust storm that intersects with Asian Dust. His Particulates research includes themes of NOx, Total organic carbon and Particle size.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Aerosol (77.04%)
  • Environmental chemistry (50.77%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (44.13%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Aerosol (77.04%)
  • Environmental chemistry (50.77%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (44.13%)

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

His primary areas of study are Aerosol, Environmental chemistry, Atmospheric sciences, Haze and Particulates. His Aerosol study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Air quality index, Air pollution, Sulfate, Nitrate and Relative humidity. His work carried out in the field of Environmental chemistry brings together such families of science as Coal combustion products, NOx, Atmospheric chemistry and Mass spectrometry.

His work deals with themes such as Atmosphere, Cloud condensation nuclei, Particle number and Beijing, which intersect with Atmospheric sciences. Yele Sun focuses mostly in the field of Haze, narrowing it down to matters related to Radiative forcing and, in some cases, Coal and Chemical composition. His Particulates research is multidisciplinary, relying on both CMAQ and Sulfur dioxide.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • An unexpected catalyst dominates formation and radiative forcing of regional haze (41 citations)
  • A chemical cocktail during the COVID-19 outbreak in Beijing, China: Insights from six-year aerosol particle composition measurements during the Chinese New Year holiday. (36 citations)
  • Fast sulfate formation from oxidation of SO 2 by NO 2 and HONO observed in Beijing haze (28 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Aerosol

Yele Sun mainly focuses on Aerosol, Environmental chemistry, Atmospheric sciences, Air pollution and Haze. His Aerosol study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Total organic carbon, Ozone, Atmospheric chemistry, Diurnal temperature variation and Sulfate. His Environmental chemistry study incorporates themes from Naphthalene, Daytime and Particulates.

His Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Coal combustion products, Atmosphere, Radiative forcing and Beijing. Yele Sun combines subjects such as Nitrate and Coal with his study of Air pollution. His Haze research also works with subjects such as

  • Relative humidity which intersects with area such as Köhler theory, Sulfate aerosol and Particle counter,
  • Photodissociation which is related to area like CMAQ.
