Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Statistics
  • Ecosystem

Gan-Lin Zhang mainly investigates Soil water, Soil science, Environmental chemistry, Pedogenesis and Soil test. Gan-Lin Zhang combines subjects such as Environmental engineering and Heavy metals with his study of Soil water. His research investigates the connection with Soil science and areas like Hydrology which intersect with concerns in Urban ecology.

His studies examine the connections between Pedogenesis and genetics, as well as such issues in Soil morphology, with regards to Soil series and Chronosequence. The concepts of his Soil test study are interwoven with issues in Soil carbon and Topsoil. As part of the same scientific family, Gan-Lin Zhang usually focuses on Soil map, concentrating on Ecosystem services and intersecting with Environmental resource management.

His most cited work include:

  • Digital Soil Map of the World (414 citations)
  • Concentrations and chemical speciations of Cu, Zn, Pb and Cr of urban soils in Nanjing, China (202 citations)
  • GlobalSoilMap: Toward a Fine-Resolution Global Grid of Soil Properties (154 citations)

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

Gan-Lin Zhang mainly focuses on Soil science, Soil water, Hydrology, Digital soil mapping and Soil map. Soil classification, Pedogenesis, Soil horizon, Soil texture and Soil carbon are the core of his Soil science study. His studies deal with areas such as Environmental chemistry and Pollution as well as Soil water.

His work deals with themes such as Eutrophication, Land use and Soil series, which intersect with Hydrology. His Digital soil mapping study also includes

  • Soil organic matter which intersects with area such as Soil fertility and Soil quality,
  • Kriging which connect with Linear regression,
  • Spatial variability together with Physical geography. His study focuses on the intersection of Soil map and fields such as Soil survey with connections in the field of Total organic carbon.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Soil science (38.59%)
  • Soil water (33.70%)
  • Hydrology (20.11%)

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

  • Soil science (38.59%)
  • Soil water (33.70%)
  • Soil map (17.93%)

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

His primary areas of study are Soil science, Soil water, Soil map, Environmental chemistry and Spatial variability. His study in Soil science is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Spatial ecology and Hierarchical database model. Gan-Lin Zhang is interested in Saprolite, which is a field of Soil water.

His Soil map study combines topics in areas such as Sampling, Soil carbon and Soil quality. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Environmental chemistry, Carbon pool and Redox is strongly linked to Bulk soil. His biological study deals with issues like Terrain, which deal with fields such as Red soil.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • High-resolution and three-dimensional mapping of soil texture of China (9 citations)
  • The geomorphology – sediment distribution – soil formation nexus on the northeastern Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau: Implications for landscape evolution (8 citations)
  • Pedoclimatic zone-based three-dimensional soil organic carbon mapping in China (7 citations)

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

  • Agriculture
  • Statistics
  • Ecosystem

Gan-Lin Zhang spends much of his time researching Topsoil, Spatial ecology, Soil carbon, Soil science and Fertilizer. His research in Topsoil intersects with topics in Ensemble learning, Soil map, Ensemble forecasting and Soil quality. Gan-Lin Zhang has researched Spatial ecology in several fields, including Terrain, Soil series, Soil texture, Vegetation and Erosion.

Gan-Lin Zhang interconnects Sediment, Aeolian processes, Geomorphology, Pedogenesis and Soil horizon in the investigation of issues within Soil carbon. His Soil science research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Silt and Spatial variability. His studies in Fertilizer integrate themes in fields like Agriculture, Crop yield, Spatial distribution, Subsoil and Straw.
