Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Organic chemistry
  • Agriculture

His primary scientific interests are in Soil water, Organic matter, Soil organic matter, Environmental chemistry and Dissolved organic carbon. His Soil water study incorporates themes from Fractionation, Total organic carbon and Mineralogy. His work carried out in the field of Organic matter brings together such families of science as Soil biology, Botany, Lignin, Temperate climate and Inorganic chemistry.

His studies deal with areas such as Soil carbon, Agronomy, Topsoil and Soil horizon as well as Soil organic matter. His Environmental chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Mineralization, Sorption, Humic acid, Carbon-13 NMR and Chemical composition. His Dissolved organic carbon study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Hydrology and Humus.

His most cited work include:

  • Persistence of soil organic matter as an ecosystem property (2867 citations)
  • Stabilization of organic matter in temperate soils: mechanisms and their relevance under different soil conditions – a review (1687 citations)
  • SOM fractionation methods: Relevance to functional pools and to stabilization mechanisms (855 citations)

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

Soil water, Environmental chemistry, Organic matter, Soil organic matter and Soil carbon are his primary areas of study. His Soil water research includes elements of Permafrost, Total organic carbon and Agronomy. His Environmental chemistry research integrates issues from Forest floor, Chemical composition, Nutrient and Soil horizon.

His Organic matter research includes themes of Sorption, Inorganic chemistry, Mineralogy, Lignin and Subsoil. His Soil organic matter research incorporates themes from Soil biology and Fractionation. His studies in Soil carbon integrate themes in fields like Global warming and Ecosystem, Soil respiration.

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Soil water, Environmental chemistry, Soil carbon, Organic matter and Soil organic matter. His Soil water study frequently links to other fields, such as Agronomy. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Nitrogen, Nutrient and Soil horizon.

His research integrates issues of Permafrost, Ecosystem and Soil fertility in his study of Soil carbon. His work deals with themes such as Soil science, Goethite, Adsorption, Sorption and Subsoil, which intersect with Organic matter. The Soil organic matter study combines topics in areas such as Soil biology, Tundra and Mineralization.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Microaggregates in soils (195 citations)
  • The Kobresia pygmaea ecosystem of the Tibetan highlands – Origin, functioning and degradation of the world's largest pastoral alpine ecosystem: Kobresia pastures of Tibet (57 citations)
  • Microbial stoichiometric flexibility regulates rice straw mineralization and its priming effect in paddy soil (53 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Organic chemistry
  • Agriculture

Georg Guggenberger mainly focuses on Soil water, Environmental chemistry, Soil organic matter, Agronomy and Organic matter. His study in Bulk soil, Soil functions and Soil structure is done as part of Soil water. Georg Guggenberger interconnects Soil horizon, Soil carbon and Mineralization, Nitrogen in the investigation of issues within Environmental chemistry.

His studies in Soil organic matter integrate themes in fields like Tundra and Ecosystem. His Agronomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Subtropics, Carbon and Tropics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Goethite, Tannic acid, Subsoil and Soil science in addition to Organic matter.
