Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

William R. Horwath mostly deals with Agronomy, Environmental chemistry, Soil organic matter, Mineralization and Soil water. His Agronomy study incorporates themes from Nutrient, Organic farming and Cycling. He has included themes like Nitrogen, Incubation, Ferric, Water quality and Nitrate in his Environmental chemistry study.

He interconnects Soil management, Crop rotation, Trifolium repens, No-till farming and Lolium perenne in the investigation of issues within Soil organic matter. His Mineralization research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Food science, Tannin and Tannic acid. His work deals with themes such as Temperate forest and Total organic carbon, which intersect with Soil water.

His most cited work include:

  • Acid fumigation of soils to remove carbonates prior to total organic carbon or CARBON‐13 isotopic analysis (733 citations)
  • Spectrophotometric Determination of Nitrate with a Single Reagent (580 citations)
  • Ammonia oxidation pathways and nitrifier denitrification are significant sources of N2O and NO under low oxygen availability (391 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Agronomy, Soil water, Soil organic matter, Environmental chemistry and Soil carbon. Agronomy is often connected to Nutrient in his work. His Soil water research includes themes of Hydrology and Organic matter.

William R. Horwath has researched Soil organic matter in several fields, including Total organic carbon, Soil quality, Soil fertility, Cycling and Nutrient cycle. His study looks at the relationship between Environmental chemistry and fields such as Sulfate, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His research integrates issues of Soil chemistry, Ecosystem and Mollisol in his study of Soil carbon.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Agronomy (45.06%)
  • Soil water (33.60%)
  • Soil organic matter (18.97%)

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

  • Soil water (33.60%)
  • Environmental chemistry (17.00%)
  • Agronomy (45.06%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Soil water, Environmental chemistry, Agronomy, Soil carbon and Climate change. His study in Soil water focuses on Mineralization in particular. His Environmental chemistry study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Soil organic matter, Soil pH, Sulfate and Nutrient.

The various areas that William R. Horwath examines in his Soil organic matter study include Primary production, Total organic carbon, Tillage and Biogeochemical cycle. The study incorporates disciplines such as Agriculture, Crop residue and Nitrogen in addition to Agronomy. His Soil carbon research incorporates themes from Soil type, Mollisol, Incubation, Soil series and Soil texture.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Soil microbial biomass size and soil carbon influence the priming effect from carbon inputs depending on nitrogen availability (46 citations)
  • Review and synthesis of the effects of elevated atmospheric CO2 on soil processes: No changes in pools, but increased fluxes and accelerated cycles (42 citations)
  • Sources of Variability that Compromise Mineralizable Carbon as a Soil Health Indicator (25 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

William R. Horwath mostly deals with Soil water, Environmental chemistry, Ecosystem, Soil carbon and Climate change. His studies in Soil water integrate themes in fields like Nitrification and Cycling. His study in Environmental chemistry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Water quality, Nutrient, Ammonia and Wetland.

His research in Ecosystem intersects with topics in Inceptisol, Ultisol, Entisol and Hydrology. His Soil carbon research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Residue, Plant residue, Agronomy and Incubation. In the subject of general Agronomy, his work in Tillage is often linked to Energy source, thereby combining diverse domains of study.
