Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Soil water
  • Erosion
  • Hydrology

His scientific interests lie mostly in Soil water, Hydrology, Water content, Soil science and Infiltration. His Soil water research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Wetting and Environmental chemistry. His study in Moisture extends to Hydrology with its themes.

His Water content study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Soil organic matter, Organic matter, Surface runoff and Surface water. His work investigates the relationship between Soil science and topics such as Water repellent that intersect with problems in Preferential flow, Geotechnical engineering and Topsoil. His Infiltration research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Hydraulic conductivity, Mineralogy and Clay soil.

His most cited work include:

  • How water moves in a water repellent sandy soil: 1. Potential and actual water repellency (490 citations)
  • Water repellency of sieve fractions from sandy soils and relationships with organic material and soil structure (408 citations)
  • Water Repellency and Critical Soil Water Content in a Dune Sand (278 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Soil water, Water content, Hydrology, Soil science and Infiltration. Louis W. Dekker performs multidisciplinary study on Soil water and Water flow in his works. His Water content research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Moisture, Soil test, Bulk density and Surface water.

His Hydrology research also works with subjects such as

  • Organic matter together with Soil texture,
  • Soil structure that connect with fields like Hydrophobic soil. His Soil science research integrates issues from Wetting and Water repellent. His Infiltration study incorporates themes from Vadose zone, Groundwater, Leaching and Porous medium.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Soil water (82.86%)
  • Water content (47.62%)
  • Hydrology (46.67%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2019)?

  • Soil water (82.86%)
  • Water content (47.62%)
  • Hydrology (46.67%)

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

Louis W. Dekker focuses on Soil water, Water content, Hydrology, Soil science and Field capacity. Louis W. Dekker combines subjects such as Moisture and Infiltration with his study of Soil water. His work carried out in the field of Infiltration brings together such families of science as Rainwater harvesting, Water table, Groundwater and Irrigation.

Water content is closely attributed to Computer graphics in his work. His research in Soil science focuses on subjects like Organic matter, which are connected to Hydraulic conductivity, Soil physics, Pedotransfer function, Soil texture and Soil organic matter. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Field capacity, Water retention curve is strongly linked to Transect.

Between 2008 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Methods for determining soil water repellency on field‐moist samples (56 citations)
  • Natural and Fire‐Induced Soil Water Repellency in a Portuguese Shrubland (39 citations)
  • The effect of soil texture and organic amendment on the hydrological behaviour of coarse-textured soils (33 citations)

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

  • Soil water
  • Erosion
  • Irrigation

His scientific interests lie mostly in Soil water, Hydrology, Water content, Surface runoff and Soil retrogression and degradation. The various areas that Louis W. Dekker examines in his Soil water study include Moisture and Organic matter. His Moisture study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Topsoil.

Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Soil science and Organic matter. His Surface runoff study combines topics in areas such as Soil biodiversity and Soil fertility. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Hydraulic conductivity, Soil texture, Soil physics and Soil organic matter.
