Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Irrigation
  • Groundwater

John Letey mainly investigates Irrigation, Drainage, Soil science, Salinity and Soil water. The various areas that John Letey examines in his Irrigation study include Water resources, Polyacrylamide, Saline water and Soil salinity. His work investigates the relationship between Drainage and topics such as Water resource management that intersect with problems in Water trading.

His studies in Soil science integrate themes in fields like Wetting, Guar, Arid and Polymer adsorption. The concepts of his Salinity study are interwoven with issues in Water potential and Water content. His Soil water study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Erosion.

His most cited work include:

  • Response of soils to sodic and saline conditions (465 citations)
  • Measurement of contact angle, water drop penetration time and critical surface tension (170 citations)
  • Measurement Of Liquid-solid Contact Angles In Soil And Sand (148 citations)

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

John Letey mainly focuses on Soil water, Irrigation, Drainage, Soil science and Irrigation management. His research in Soil water is mostly concerned with Hydraulic conductivity. His studies in Irrigation integrate themes in fields like Salinity, Saline water, Soil salinity and Evapotranspiration.

The concepts of his Drainage study are interwoven with issues in Water resource management, Groundwater, San Joaquin, Water conservation and Well drainage. His studies deal with areas such as Wetting and Infiltration as well as Soil science. His Deficit irrigation research includes themes of Surface irrigation, Environmental engineering and Agriculture.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Soil water (32.10%)
  • Irrigation (30.86%)
  • Drainage (22.22%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2001-2015)?

  • Soil water (32.10%)
  • Irrigation (30.86%)
  • Drainage (22.22%)

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

John Letey mostly deals with Soil water, Irrigation, Drainage, San Joaquin and Soil science. He has included themes like Porosity and Water repellent in his Soil water study. His Irrigation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Water resources, Salinity, Soil salinity and Evapotranspiration.

As a part of the same scientific family, John Letey mostly works in the field of Soil salinity, focusing on Water resource management and, on occasion, Crop growth. His research investigates the connection between Drainage and topics such as Groundwater that intersect with issues in Environmental engineering, Leaching, Leaching model and Wastewater. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Growing season and Root system.

Between 2001 and 2015, his most popular works were:

  • Evaluation of soil salinity leaching requirement guidelines (139 citations)
  • Dynamic versus steady-state approaches to evaluate irrigation management of saline waters (63 citations)
  • Soil management effects on the nonlimiting water range (46 citations)

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

  • Agriculture
  • Irrigation
  • Organic chemistry

John Letey spends much of his time researching Soil water, Irrigation, Loam, Evapotranspiration and Water resources. His work carried out in the field of Soil water brings together such families of science as Nonlimiting water range, Manure and Water content. His work deals with themes such as Wastewater, Soil salinity and Drainage, which intersect with Irrigation.

His research in Loam intersects with topics in Salinity, Crop yield, Hydrus, Soil management and Forage. His Evapotranspiration study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Water quality, Water conservation, Deficit irrigation, Saline water and Irrigation management. His Water resources research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Leaching model, Environmental engineering, Leaching, Water resource management and Groundwater.
