Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

Roland Bol spends much of his time researching Soil water, Environmental chemistry, Organic matter, Agronomy and Soil organic matter. His Soil water research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Total organic carbon, Nutrient, Nitrogen cycle and Botany. As part of one scientific family, Roland Bol deals mainly with the area of Total organic carbon, narrowing it down to issues related to the Carbon sequestration, and often Soil science, Soil contamination, Carbon credit and Environmental protection.

His Environmental chemistry research integrates issues from Slurry, Humus, Temperate climate and Pyrolysis. The study incorporates disciplines such as Soil horizon, Podzol, Mineralization and Gleysol in addition to Organic matter. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Soil test, Soil carbon and Woodland.

His most cited work include:

  • A review of biochar and its use and function in soil (1158 citations)
  • δ13C values of soil organic carbon and their use in documenting vegetation change in a subtropical savanna ecosystem (405 citations)
  • SOIL MICROBES COMPETE EFFECTIVELY WITH PLANTS FOR ORGANIC‐NITROGEN INPUTS TO TEMPERATE GRASSLANDS (277 citations)

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

His main research concerns Soil water, Environmental chemistry, Agronomy, Soil organic matter and Organic matter. Roland Bol interconnects Denitrification, Total organic carbon and Nutrient in the investigation of issues within Soil water. His Denitrification research incorporates elements of Nitrous oxide, Nitrification and Nitrate.

Roland Bol studied Environmental chemistry and Phosphorus that intersect with Colloid. Many of his studies on Agronomy apply to Mineralization as well. His Organic matter research integrates issues from Bulk soil and Soil horizon.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Soil water (38.01%)
  • Environmental chemistry (33.71%)
  • Agronomy (28.73%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Soil water (38.01%)
  • Agronomy (28.73%)
  • Environmental chemistry (33.71%)

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

Roland Bol mainly focuses on Soil water, Agronomy, Environmental chemistry, Phosphorus and Nutrient. His studies deal with areas such as Denitrification, Organic matter, Total organic carbon and Manure as well as Soil water. His Agronomy study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Soil organic matter, Soil fertility and Topsoil.

His work carried out in the field of Environmental chemistry brings together such families of science as Uranium, Colloid, Soil pH and Fractionation. He has researched Phosphorus in several fields, including Andisol, Sediment, Phosphate and Sorption. The concepts of his Nutrient study are interwoven with issues in Evergreen, Litter, Animal science and Michelia wilsonii.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Occurrence of Soil Fungi in Antarctic Pristine Environments. (20 citations)
  • Soil organic matter priming and carbon balance after straw addition is regulated by long-term fertilization (16 citations)
  • Soil organic matter priming and carbon balance after straw addition is regulated by long-term fertilization (16 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

Roland Bol spends much of his time researching Soil water, Agronomy, Soil carbon, Environmental chemistry and Organic matter. His Soil water study incorporates themes from Phosphorus, Manganese, Phosphate, Denitrification and Isotope fractionation. His work investigates the relationship between Agronomy and topics such as Soil fertility that intersect with problems in Manure and Mineralization.

He combines subjects such as Soil organic matter, Abundance, High forest and Environmental protection with his study of Soil carbon. His research combines Soil pH and Environmental chemistry. His work on Organic matter is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Topsoil.
