Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Erosion

His main research concerns Hydrology, Soil conservation, Agronomy, Tillage and Erosion. His Hydrology research incorporates themes from Arid, Sediment and Land degradation. His Agronomy research integrates issues from Plant cover and Soil water, Soil fertility.

Jozef Deckers works mostly in the field of Tillage, limiting it down to topics relating to No-till farming and, in certain cases, Conventional tillage and Crop residue. His work investigates the relationship between Sinkhole and topics such as Soil classification that intersect with problems in Environmental protection. His FAO soil classification study incorporates themes from Unified Soil Classification System and Technosol.

His most cited work include:

  • World Reference Base for Soil Resources (5983 citations)
  • Reference Base for Soil Resources (547 citations)
  • Human impact on the environment in the Ethiopian and Eritrean highlands—a state of the art (418 citations)

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

Jozef Deckers spends much of his time researching Hydrology, Agroforestry, Agronomy, Soil water and Surface runoff. His research integrates issues of Soil conservation, Structural basin and Land use in his study of Hydrology. His study explores the link between Soil conservation and topics such as Land degradation that cross with problems in Land management.

The concepts of his Agroforestry study are interwoven with issues in Soil management and Forestry. His Agronomy research incorporates elements of No-till farming and Crop residue. As part of his studies on Soil classification, Jozef Deckers frequently links adjacent subjects like Soil map.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Hydrology (30.87%)
  • Agroforestry (16.12%)
  • Agronomy (14.56%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Hydrology (30.87%)
  • Surface runoff (13.01%)
  • Soil conservation (13.01%)

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

Jozef Deckers mostly deals with Hydrology, Surface runoff, Soil conservation, Agroforestry and Structural basin. Jozef Deckers has included themes like Head, Bed load and Wet season in his Hydrology study. The Surface runoff study combines topics in areas such as Soil water, Agricultural land, Erosion and Drainage.

His Soil conservation research includes elements of Mulch, Tithonia, Tillage, Agronomy and Land drainage. His Agronomy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Soil biodiversity, No-till farming and Soil fertility. He works mostly in the field of Agroforestry, limiting it down to concerns involving Land degradation and, occasionally, Deforestation and Environmental protection.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Spatial Analysis of Land Cover Changes in Eastern Tigray (Ethiopia) from 1965 to 2007: Are There Signs of a Forest Transition? (62 citations)
  • Effectiveness OF Mulching Under Miraba in Controlling Soil Erosion, Fertility Restoration and Crop Yield in the Usambara Mountains, Tanzania (51 citations)
  • A Political Ecology Perspective of Land Degradation in the North Ethiopian Highlands (48 citations)

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

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Erosion

His primary areas of study are Hydrology, Surface runoff, Soil conservation, Agronomy and Agroforestry. The study incorporates disciplines such as Structural basin, Soil water and Wet season in addition to Hydrology. His Surface runoff research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Drainage basin, Erosion and Drainage.

His studies in Erosion integrate themes in fields like Sediment, Rangeland and Arid. His research in Agronomy intersects with topics in No-till farming and Soil fertility. Land management, Water conservation and Environmental protection is closely connected to Land degradation in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Agroforestry.
