What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Organic chemistry
  • Soil water

Ingrid Kögel-Knabner focuses on Soil organic matter, Organic matter, Soil water, Environmental chemistry and Soil science. Her Soil organic matter research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Total organic carbon, Cambisol, Topsoil, Carbon and Soil horizon. Her Organic matter study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Humus, Lignin, Ferrihydrite, Dissolved organic carbon and Subsoil.

Soil carbon is the focus of her Soil water research. Her Environmental chemistry study incorporates themes from Biomass, Chernozem and Litter. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Earth science and Biogeochemical cycle.

Her 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)
  • The macromolecular organic composition of plant and microbial residues as inputs to soil organic matter (1230 citations)

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

Ingrid Kögel-Knabner spends much of her time researching Soil water, Organic matter, Environmental chemistry, Soil organic matter and Soil science. Ingrid Kögel-Knabner specializes in Soil water, namely Soil carbon. Her Organic matter study also includes fields such as

  • Cambisol which connect with Podzol,
  • Carbon-13 NMR and related Analytical chemistry.

The concepts of her Environmental chemistry study are interwoven with issues in Soil contamination, Humus, Lignin and Sorption. Her studies examine the connections between Soil organic matter and genetics, as well as such issues in Topsoil, with regards to Subsoil. Her is involved in several facets of Soil science study, as is seen by her studies on Pedogenesis, Soil type, Soil functions and Mineralization.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Soil water (51.42%)
  • Organic matter (39.43%)
  • Environmental chemistry (39.22%)

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

  • Soil water (51.42%)
  • Environmental chemistry (39.22%)
  • Organic matter (39.43%)

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

Ingrid Kögel-Knabner mainly investigates Soil water, Environmental chemistry, Organic matter, Soil science and Soil organic matter. Her research integrates issues of Agriculture, Aggregate and Grassland in her study of Soil water. Her work on Total organic carbon as part of general Environmental chemistry study is frequently linked to Composition, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Ingrid Kögel-Knabner combines subjects such as Fractionation, Sulfate, Calcareous and Pyrite with her study of Organic matter. Ingrid Kögel-Knabner has included themes like Size composition, Global change and Size fractions in her Soil organic matter study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Decomposition, Bulk soil and Soil horizon in addition to Subsoil.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Soil organic carbon storage as a key function of soils - A review of drivers and indicators at various scales (260 citations)
  • Persistence of soil organic carbon caused by functional complexity (36 citations)
  • The concept and future prospects of soil health (27 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Organic chemistry
  • Agriculture

Her primary scientific interests are in Soil water, Organic matter, Soil carbon, Environmental chemistry and Soil science. Ingrid Kögel-Knabner works on Soil water which deals in particular with Soil structure. Ingrid Kögel-Knabner interconnects Microcosm, Soil organic matter, Particle-size distribution, Cambisol and Environmental remediation in the investigation of issues within Organic matter.

Her Soil organic matter research integrates issues from Size composition, Temperate climate and Size fractions. Her research in Soil carbon intersects with topics in Soil quality, Climate change mitigation, Climate change, Crop rotation and Soil management. Ingrid Kögel-Knabner studies Environmental chemistry, namely Total organic carbon.
