Becagli Silvia

Becagli Silvia Graduate in Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Technology in 1991 at the University of Florence, in 1998 Philosophy Doctor in Environmental Science with the thesis Study of Antarctic ecosystem by ice core chemical analysis. Since 1999 she has a permanent position at the Department of Chemistry - University of Florence. In 2013 and 2017 she obtained the National Abilitation for Professor in Analytical Chemistry and in 2017 she obtained the National Abilitation for full Professor in Analytical Chemistry.
Now she works on the application of innovative highly performance analytical methods for the determination of ions and metals in environmental matrices, mainly aerosols, snow and ice. The research activity is focused on the study of the atmospheric aerosol sources and transport processes in areas with different anthropogenic impact, with particular attention to polar areas (Arctic, Antarctica) and marine areas in the central Mediterranean basin. An important part of her research activity is the study of the cycles of natural substances, the anthropogenic contributions and the aerosol-climate interaction for present time, by aerosol measurements, and for the past by chemical analysis of ice cores drilled in Antarctica. She is Editor of the following Journal/issue:
- Special issue jointly organized between Biogeosciences and Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, Atmospheric deposition in the low-nutrient-low-chlorophyll (LNLC) ocean: effects on marine life today and in the future.
- International Journal Environmental Research and Public Health – Section “Environmental Chemistry and Technology” (IF 2018 = 2.468).
She is author/co-author of 117 and 122 publications from ISI Web of Science and Scopus respectively and she has H-index of 30.
