Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Ecology
  • Agriculture

Heike Knicker spends much of her time researching Organic matter, Soil organic matter, Soil water, Environmental chemistry and Nitrogen. Her studies deal with areas such as Carbon, NMR spectra database, Lignin and Carbon-13 NMR as well as Organic matter. Heike Knicker has included themes like No-till farming, Soil carbon, Humus and Soil horizon in her Soil organic matter study.

Her Soil water research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Total organic carbon, Ecosystem and Charcoal. Her work deals with themes such as Soil fertility, Botany, Mineralogy and Pyrolysis, Char, which intersect with Environmental chemistry. The study incorporates disciplines such as Peat and Nuclear chemistry in addition to Nitrogen.

Her most cited work include:

  • The effect of fire on soil organic matter--a review. (732 citations)
  • How does fire affect the nature and stability of soil organic nitrogen and carbon? A review (510 citations)
  • Improvement of 13C and 15N CPMAS NMR spectra of bulk soils, particle size fractions and organic material by treatment with 10% hydrofluoric acid (293 citations)

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

Heike Knicker mainly focuses on Environmental chemistry, Soil water, Organic matter, Soil organic matter and Nitrogen. Within one scientific family, Heike Knicker focuses on topics pertaining to Biochar under Environmental chemistry, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Cambisol. The various areas that she examines in her Soil water study include Biomass and Forestry.

Her Organic matter research incorporates elements of Humus, Total organic carbon, Chemical composition, Carbon-13 NMR and Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Her Carbon-13 NMR research incorporates elements of NMR spectra database and Analytical chemistry. She works mostly in the field of Soil organic matter, limiting it down to concerns involving Agronomy and, occasionally, Topsoil.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (44.79%)
  • Soil water (37.47%)
  • Organic matter (36.59%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Environmental chemistry (44.79%)
  • Biochar (10.64%)
  • Organic matter (36.59%)

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

Heike Knicker mainly focuses on Environmental chemistry, Biochar, Organic matter, Soil water and Soil organic matter. The study incorporates disciplines such as Nitrogen, Charcoal, Carbon, Pyrolysis and Hydrothermal carbonization in addition to Environmental chemistry. Her Biochar research includes themes of Trace element, Crop residue, Cambisol and Agronomy.

Her study focuses on the intersection of Organic matter and fields such as Soil horizon with connections in the field of Soil carbon. Her studies in Soil water integrate themes in fields like Biomass and Sorption. As part of the same scientific family, Heike Knicker usually focuses on Soil organic matter, concentrating on Redox and intersecting with Water extraction and Abiotic component.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Effects of aging under field conditions on biochar structure and composition: Implications for biochar stability in soils. (76 citations)
  • Effect of biochar amendment on compost organic matter composition following aerobic composting of manure. (46 citations)
  • Synergistic use of peat and charred material in growing media – an option to reduce the pressure on peatlands? (45 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Organic chemistry
  • Agriculture

Her primary areas of study are Environmental chemistry, Biochar, Organic matter, Soil organic matter and Soil water. Her research in Environmental chemistry intersects with topics in Carbon, Charcoal, Lignin and Nitrogen. The Biochar study combines topics in areas such as Environmental engineering and Soil conditioner.

Her study in Organic matter is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Peat, Ecosystem, Agronomy and Greenhouse gas. Her Soil organic matter study typically links adjacent topics like Soil horizon. She has included themes like Pulmonary surfactant and Sorption in her Soil water study.
