Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

His primary areas of study are Charcoal, Soil water, Slash-and-char, Agronomy and Environmental chemistry. His Charcoal research incorporates themes from Soil organic matter and Hydrothermal carbonization. His study in Organic matter extends to Soil organic matter with its themes.

He usually deals with Soil water and limits it to topics linked to Carbon cycle and Poaceae. His Slash-and-char study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Terra preta and Fertilizer. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Agronomy, concentrating on Soil fertility and frequently concerns with Soil pH and Soil management.

His most cited work include:

  • Ameliorating physical and chemical properties of highly weathered soils in the tropics with charcoal – a review (1785 citations)
  • Nutrient availability and leaching in an archaeological Anthrosol and a Ferralsol of the Central Amazon basin: fertilizer, manure and charcoal amendments (1338 citations)
  • The 'Terra Preta' phenomenon: a model for sustainable agriculture in the humid tropics. (761 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Soil water, Environmental chemistry, Agronomy, Soil organic matter and Biochar. His work carried out in the field of Soil water brings together such families of science as Hydrology, Transect and Vegetation. Bruno Glaser has researched Environmental chemistry in several fields, including Decomposition, Carbon, Isotopes of oxygen and Bulk soil.

He combines subjects such as Soil fertility, Slash-and-char and Charcoal with his study of Agronomy. His Soil organic matter research incorporates themes from Terra preta, Organic matter, Soil carbon and Botany. His Biochar study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cambisol and Greenhouse gas.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Soil water (26.04%)
  • Environmental chemistry (20.00%)
  • Agronomy (22.26%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Biochar (16.60%)
  • Soil water (26.04%)
  • Environmental chemistry (20.00%)

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

Bruno Glaser spends much of his time researching Biochar, Soil water, Environmental chemistry, Agronomy and Physical geography. His Biochar research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Soil fertility, Compost, Bulk density, Loam and Soil chemistry. His research integrates issues of Soil organic matter and Soil horizon in his study of Soil fertility.

He focuses mostly in the field of Soil water, narrowing it down to topics relating to Vegetation and, in certain cases, Range. His Environmental chemistry research includes elements of Organic matter, Phosphorus, Goethite, Gas chromatography and Soil management. His Agronomy study incorporates themes from Biodiversity and Cambisol.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Biochar effects on phosphorus availability in agricultural soils: A meta-analysis. (59 citations)
  • Middle Stone Age foragers resided in high elevations of the glaciated Bale Mountains, Ethiopia (33 citations)
  • Effect of Biochar Particle Size on Physical, Hydrological and Chemical Properties of Loamy and Sandy Tropical Soils (30 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

Bruno Glaser mostly deals with Biochar, Soil chemistry, Environmental chemistry, Soil organic matter and Agronomy. The study of Biochar is intertwined with the study of Soil water in a number of ways. His research in Environmental chemistry intersects with topics in Organic matter, Soil test and Compost.

His Organic matter research incorporates elements of Terra preta, Soil management, Carbon, Cation-exchange capacity and Soil horizon. His Soil organic matter study combines topics in areas such as Soil carbon and Soil fertility. Specifically, his work in Agronomy is concerned with the study of Fertilizer.
