Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Agriculture

Ralf Kiese spends much of his time researching Soil water, Water content, Ecosystem, Wet season and Ecology. His Soil water research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Agronomy, Nitrous oxide, Seasonality, Dry season and Carbon dioxide. The concepts of his Water content study are interwoven with issues in Rainforest, Tropical rainforest, Soil texture and Animal science.

Ralf Kiese has included themes like Biogeochemical cycle, Denitrification and Nitrogen cycle in his Ecosystem study. His Nitrogen cycle research includes themes of Environmental chemistry and Land management. Land use and Global change are among the areas of Ecology where the researcher is concentrating his efforts.

His most cited work include:

  • Nitrous oxide emissions from soils: how well do we understand the processes and their controls? (1122 citations)
  • A Network of Terrestrial Environmental Observatories in Germany (308 citations)
  • Nitrous oxide emissions from a cropped soil in a semi-arid climate (210 citations)

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

His main research concerns Soil water, Atmospheric sciences, Greenhouse gas, Agronomy and Ecosystem. His Soil water study incorporates themes from Nitrous oxide, Grassland, Wet season and Water content. In his work, Uncertainty quantification is strongly intertwined with Biogeochemical model, which is a subfield of Atmospheric sciences.

His Greenhouse gas research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Subtropics, Agroforestry, Arable land, Carbon sequestration and Paddy field. His work in Agronomy addresses subjects such as Leaching, which are connected to disciplines such as Nitrate. His Ecosystem research focuses on Nitrogen cycle and how it relates to Biogeochemical cycle.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Soil water (36.21%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (23.87%)
  • Greenhouse gas (23.46%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Grassland (13.58%)
  • Soil water (36.21%)
  • Greenhouse gas (23.46%)

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

His primary areas of study are Grassland, Soil water, Greenhouse gas, Climate change and Ecosystem. His research integrates issues of Organic matter, Biomass, Global warming, Forestry and Lysimeter in his study of Grassland. His study in the field of Soil carbon also crosses realms of Earth science.

The Greenhouse gas study combines topics in areas such as Eddy covariance, Nitrous oxide, Reactive nitrogen, Carbon dioxide and Paddy field. His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Grassland ecosystem, Terrestrial ecosystem and Environmental resource management. His work deals with themes such as Global change, Nitrogen cycle, Land use and Water content, which intersect with Ecosystem.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Climate–land-use interactions shape tropical mountain biodiversity and ecosystem functions (99 citations)
  • Early stage litter decomposition across biomes (83 citations)
  • Trade-offs between soil carbon sequestration and reactive nitrogen losses under straw return in global agroecosystems (55 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Agriculture

Ralf Kiese mainly focuses on Greenhouse gas, Ecosystem, Soil water, Terrestrial ecosystem and Climate change. Ralf Kiese combines subjects such as Nitrous oxide and Eddy covariance with his study of Greenhouse gas. His work carried out in the field of Ecosystem brings together such families of science as Biogeochemical cycle, Nitrogen cycle, Global change and Water content.

His research in Nitrogen cycle intersects with topics in Nutrient cycle, Ecosystem model and Nitrification. His research investigates the connection between Soil water and topics such as Agronomy that intersect with issues in Soil organic matter. Ralf Kiese interconnects Atmosphere and Biome in the investigation of issues within Terrestrial ecosystem.
