Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Fertilizer
  • Carbon dioxide

Ward Smith mainly investigates Greenhouse gas, Soil water, Soil carbon, Agriculture and Climate change. His work in the fields of Greenhouse gas, such as Climate change mitigation, intersects with other areas such as Simulation modeling. His Soil water research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Growing season and Water content.

In his research on the topic of Soil carbon, Soil quality, Biofuel, Crop residue, Fertilizer and Soil science is strongly related with Agricultural land. When carried out as part of a general Agriculture research project, his work on Land management is frequently linked to work in Biometeorology, Spatial variability and Range, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Climate change research includes themes of N2o flux, Agricultural productivity, Crop yield and Meteorology.

His most cited work include:

  • ESTIMATED N2O AND CO2 EMISSIONS AS INFLUENCED BY AGRICULTURAL PRACTICES IN CANADA (108 citations)
  • The net flux of carbon from agricultural soils in Canada 1970–2010 (96 citations)
  • A proposed approach to estimate and reduce net greenhouse gas emissions from whole farms (85 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Greenhouse gas, Agriculture, Soil water, Climate change and Soil carbon. Ward Smith has included themes like Carbon sequestration, Agricultural productivity, Crop rotation and Manure in his Greenhouse gas study. His Agriculture study incorporates themes from Environmental resource management and Environmental protection.

His Soil water research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biogeochemical cycle, Water content and Drainage. His studies deal with areas such as Cropping, Crop yield, Leaching and Precipitation as well as Climate change. His Soil carbon research integrates issues from Soil quality, Primary production, Ecosystem respiration, Agricultural land and Agricultural engineering.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Greenhouse gas (35.92%)
  • Agriculture (23.30%)
  • Soil water (23.30%)

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

  • Crop yield (17.48%)
  • Greenhouse gas (35.92%)
  • Climate change (23.30%)

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

Ward Smith mainly focuses on Crop yield, Greenhouse gas, Climate change, Soil water and Biogeochemical cycle. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Soil carbon under Crop yield, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Agricultural engineering, Crop, Global warming and Crop rotation. His Greenhouse gas research includes elements of Subsurface drainage, Agriculture, Agricultural productivity and Field experiment.

His Climate change study combines topics in areas such as Cropping, Fertilizer, Leaching and Precipitation. His research integrates issues of Manure management, Manure and Total organic carbon in his study of Soil water. His Biogeochemical cycle research incorporates elements of Biomass, Water quality and Denitrification.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Assessing uncertainties in crop and pasture ensemble model simulations of productivity and N2O emissions (63 citations)
  • A comparison of methods to quantify greenhouse gas emissions of cropping systems in LCA (48 citations)
  • Long-term Trends in Corn Yields and Soil Carbon under Diversified Crop Rotations. (36 citations)

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

  • Agriculture
  • Fertilizer
  • Carbon dioxide

Ward Smith mostly deals with Crop yield, Greenhouse gas, Climate change, Biogeochemical cycle and Denitrification. His Crop yield research is multidisciplinary, relying on both DayCent, Soil carbon, Crop, Coupled model intercomparison project and Global warming. The concepts of his Soil carbon study are interwoven with issues in Yield, Agricultural engineering, Crop rotation and Carbon sink.

His Greenhouse gas study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Agriculture, Agricultural productivity, Conventional tillage and Representative Concentration Pathways. His Climate change study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Moisture, Tillage, Canola and Precipitation. In his study, Surface runoff, Soil horizon, Soil water and Drainage is inextricably linked to Water quality, which falls within the broad field of Biogeochemical cycle.
