Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Erosion

John Quinton focuses on Hydrology, Erosion, Surface runoff, Soil science and Sediment. The concepts of his Hydrology study are interwoven with issues in Soil texture, Forest ecology and Vegetation. His study explores the link between Erosion and topics such as Soil conservation that cross with problems in Land use.

John Quinton mostly deals with Rill in his studies of Surface runoff. His research in Soil science focuses on subjects like Nutrient, which are connected to Water pollution. His Sediment research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Soil water, Soil contamination and Grassland.

His most cited work include:

  • The European Soil Erosion Model (EUROSEM): A dynamic approach for predicting sediment transport from fields and small catchments. (915 citations)
  • The significance of soils and soil science towards realization of the United Nations sustainable development goals (626 citations)
  • The impact of agricultural soil erosion on biogeochemical cycling (457 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Hydrology, Erosion, Sediment, Surface runoff and Soil science. His Hydrology research incorporates themes from Scale, Soil water and Nutrient. John Quinton interconnects Soil conservation, WEPP, Sediment transport and Tillage in the investigation of issues within Erosion.

His Sediment research includes elements of Silt, Environmental engineering, Phosphorus, Water quality and Wetland. His work investigates the relationship between Surface runoff and topics such as Soil management that intersect with problems in Soil functions. His Soil science study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Erosion control.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Hydrology (37.67%)
  • Erosion (25.68%)
  • Sediment (24.66%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Erosion (25.68%)
  • Soil science (19.86%)
  • Hydrology (37.67%)

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

His main research concerns Erosion, Soil science, Hydrology, Soil water and Sediment. His Erosion research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Scale and Arable land. His study in the fields of Pedotransfer function and Soil phosphorus under the domain of Soil science overlaps with other disciplines such as Tracing and TRACER.

His research integrates issues of Scale, Forest ecology and Soil conservation in his study of Hydrology. His Soil water course of study focuses on Nutrient and Soil fertility. His Sediment research focuses on Photogrammetry and how it relates to Gully erosion.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The significance of soils and soil science towards realization of the United Nations sustainable development goals (626 citations)
  • Land use change impacts on floods at the catchment scale : challenges and opportunities for future research (117 citations)
  • Plant diversity and root traits benefit physical properties key to soil function in grasslands (113 citations)

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

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Erosion

John Quinton spends much of his time researching Erosion, Soil science, Hydrology, Soil water and Arable land. As a member of one scientific family, John Quinton mostly works in the field of Erosion, focusing on Soil fertility and, on occasion, Universal Soil Loss Equation, Soil structure and Sediment transport. His Soil science research focuses on subjects like Sustainable development, which are linked to Soil governance, Water scarcity and Food security.

His Hydrology study incorporates themes from Agriculture, Sediment and Forest ecology. In the subject of general Soil water, his work in Soil horizon is often linked to Cosmogenic nuclide, thereby combining diverse domains of study. John Quinton works mostly in the field of Land use, limiting it down to topics relating to Surface runoff and, in certain cases, Agronomy, as a part of the same area of interest.
