Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Agriculture

His primary areas of investigation include Soil water, Agronomy, Populus fremontii, Hydrology and Riparian forest. His Soil water research includes elements of Ecosystem, Nitrogen cycle and Microbial population biology. The study incorporates disciplines such as No-till farming, Loam and Soil management in addition to Agronomy.

His studies in Populus fremontii integrate themes in fields like Floodplain, Willow, Canopy, Leaf area index and Surface runoff. His research integrates issues of Sporobolus wrightii and Riparian zone in his study of Hydrology. His work carried out in the field of Mineralization brings together such families of science as Nutrient cycle, Nutrient, Soil texture, Environmental chemistry and Denitrification.

His most cited work include:

  • Water Pulses and Biogeochemical Cycles in Arid and Semiarid Ecosystems (976 citations)
  • Microbial control over carbon cycling in soil. (597 citations)
  • Long term tillage, cover crop, and fertilization effects on microbial community structure, activity: Implications for soil quality (219 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Agronomy, Soil water, Ecosystem, Environmental chemistry and Soil carbon. His Soil organic matter research extends to the thematically linked field of Agronomy. Sean M. Schaeffer interconnects Cycling, Larrea, Water content, Nutrient cycle and Straw in the investigation of issues within Soil water.

His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Biomass, Soil science, Nutrient and Mineralization. His studies deal with areas such as Denitrification and Nitrogen cycle as well as Mineralization. His Biogeochemical cycle study in the realm of Environmental chemistry interacts with subjects such as Colloid.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Agronomy (47.96%)
  • Soil water (41.84%)
  • Ecosystem (38.78%)

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

  • Soil water (41.84%)
  • Agronomy (47.96%)
  • Environmental chemistry (26.53%)

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

Soil water, Agronomy, Environmental chemistry, Mulch and Biodegradable plastic are his primary areas of study. Many of his studies on Soil water apply to Growing season as well. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Biomass and Agroecosystem.

He studies Biogeochemical cycle, a branch of Environmental chemistry. His Biogeochemical cycle research focuses on Carrion and how it relates to Nutrient. His Soil pH research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Edaphic, Hydrology, Ecosystem, Carbon cycle and Vegetation.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Impacts of biodegradable plastic mulches on soil health (47 citations)
  • Release of micro- and nanoparticles from biodegradable plastic during in situ composting. (18 citations)
  • In situ degradation of biodegradable plastic mulch films in compost and agricultural soils (17 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

Sean M. Schaeffer mostly deals with Soil water, Biodegradable plastic, Mulch, Agriculture and Agronomy. His studies in Soil water integrate themes in fields like Biostimulation and Straw. His Mulch research includes themes of Soil health, Soil functions, Infiltration, Soil pH and Nutrient cycle.

His Soil health research incorporates themes from Plastic mulch, Plasticulture and Soil fertility. His studies deal with areas such as Enzyme assay, Soil organic matter, Cover crop, Tillage and Amino sugar as well as Agriculture. His Agronomy study focuses on Fertilizer in particular.
