Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sediment
  • Hydrology
  • Erosion

His primary scientific interests are in Hydrology, Sediment, Drainage basin, Erosion and Sedimentary budget. Desmond E. Walling frequently studies issues relating to Structural basin and Hydrology. His biological study deals with issues like Soil science, which deal with fields such as Agricultural land.

His studies in Drainage basin integrate themes in fields like Flood myth, Tributary, Aquatic ecosystem and Pollution. His study in Erosion is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both River monitoring, Hydrology and Aquifer, Groundwater. Desmond E. Walling interconnects Sediment control, WEPP, Land use, land-use change and forestry, Environmental change and Silt fence in the investigation of issues within Sedimentary budget.

His most cited work include:

  • The sediment delivery problem (1029 citations)
  • Recent trends in the suspended sediment loads of the world's rivers (774 citations)
  • Human impact on land : ocean sediment transfer by the world's rivers (561 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Hydrology, Sediment, Drainage basin, Erosion and Floodplain. His work investigates the relationship between Hydrology and topics such as Overbank that intersect with problems in Alluvion. His Sediment study incorporates themes from Channel, Soil science and Fluvial.

His Fluvial research focuses on subjects like Particle size, which are linked to Grain size. His Drainage basin research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Structural basin, Flood myth, Pollution and Tributary. His studies deal with areas such as Soil conservation, WEPP, Surface runoff and Land use as well as Erosion.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Hydrology (82.99%)
  • Sediment (65.40%)
  • Drainage basin (42.23%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2020)?

  • Hydrology (82.99%)
  • Sediment (65.40%)
  • Erosion (34.60%)

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

His primary areas of study are Hydrology, Sediment, Erosion, Drainage basin and Sedimentary budget. His Hydrology study combines topics in areas such as Soil water, Sedimentation and Land use. Desmond E. Walling has researched Sediment in several fields, including Surface runoff and WEPP.

His research in Erosion intersects with topics in Soil science, Soil retrogression and degradation, Soil conservation, Mediterranean climate and Tillage. His Drainage basin study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Water quality, Grassland, Soil loss, Current and Aquatic ecosystem. The Sedimentary budget study combines topics in areas such as Channel and Environmental change, Climate change.

Between 2009 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Apportioning catchment scale sediment sources using a modified composite fingerprinting technique incorporating property weightings and prior information (195 citations)
  • The evolution of sediment source fingerprinting investigations in fluvial systems (178 citations)
  • Fallout 210Pb as a soil and sediment tracer in catchment sediment budget investigations: A review (119 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Erosion
  • Hydrology

Desmond E. Walling focuses on Hydrology, Sediment, Drainage basin, Erosion and Channel bank. His work on Surface runoff is typically connected to Tracing as part of general Hydrology study, connecting several disciplines of science. His research combines Soil science and Sediment.

His study in Drainage basin is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Water quality and Aquatic ecosystem. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Erosion, Grassland, Water resources, Sediment transport, Erosion prediction and WEPP is strongly linked to Catchment area. Desmond E. Walling focuses mostly in the field of Channel bank, narrowing it down to matters related to Catchment-sensitive farming and, in some cases, Arable land, Road verge and Floodplain.
