Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Ecology

His main research concerns Manure, Slurry, Agronomy, Volatilisation and Environmental engineering. His work deals with themes such as Agriculture, Straw and Methane, Anaerobic digestion, which intersect with Manure. In his study, Biogas, Productivity, Dairy cattle and Food science is strongly linked to Biomass, which falls under the umbrella field of Anaerobic digestion.

He has included themes like Waste management, Struvite, Dry matter and Ammonia volatilization from urea in his Slurry study. Agronomy and Denitrification are frequently intertwined in his study. His research integrates issues of Air pollution and Animal waste in his study of Environmental engineering.

His most cited work include:

  • Methane productivity of manure, straw and solid fractions of manure (550 citations)
  • Ammonia emission from field applied manure and its reduction-invited paper (421 citations)
  • Manure management: implications for greenhouse gas emissions (341 citations)

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

Sven G. Sommer focuses on Manure, Slurry, Waste management, Environmental engineering and Agronomy. His studies in Manure integrate themes in fields like Biogas, Greenhouse gas and Methane. His Methane research includes elements of Nitrous oxide and Organic matter.

His research investigates the connection with Slurry and areas like Ammonia volatilization from urea which intersect with concerns in Animal science. As a member of one scientific family, Sven G. Sommer mostly works in the field of Environmental engineering, focusing on Air pollution and, on occasion, Agriculture. His studies deal with areas such as Livestock and Nutrient as well as Agronomy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Manure (43.46%)
  • Slurry (31.94%)
  • Waste management (27.75%)

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

  • Manure (43.46%)
  • Biogas (19.90%)
  • Anaerobic digestion (13.09%)

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

Sven G. Sommer mostly deals with Manure, Biogas, Anaerobic digestion, Waste management and Agronomy. His study in Manure is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Animal science, Fertilizer and Methane. His Biogas research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Slurry, Digestate, Methanogenesis, Acidogenesis and Biofuel.

His Slurry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Soil science and Wind speed. His Anaerobic digestion research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Food science and Pulp and paper industry. The various areas that Sven G. Sommer examines in his Waste management study include Biomass and Environmental engineering.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Current Approaches and Future Trends in Compost Quality Criteria for Agronomic, Environmental, and Human Health Benefits (54 citations)
  • Best available technology for European livestock farms: Availability, effectiveness and uptake. (53 citations)
  • Life Cycle Assessment of Biogas Production in Small-scale Household Digesters in Vietnam (46 citations)

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

  • Agriculture
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Ecology

Sven G. Sommer mainly focuses on Manure, Biogas, Slurry, Agronomy and Anaerobic digestion. The Manure study which covers Ammoniacal nitrogen that intersects with Soil science, Atmosphere and Ammonia volatilization from urea. His Biogas study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Biofuel, Methanogenesis and Acidogenesis.

His work focuses on many connections between Slurry and other disciplines, such as Wind speed, that overlap with his field of interest in Infiltration. His research investigates the connection between Agronomy and topics such as Organic matter that intersect with issues in Dissolved organic carbon, Landscaping and Livestock manure. His studies examine the connections between Anaerobic digestion and genetics, as well as such issues in Animal science, with regards to Carbon dioxide.
