Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

Wulf Amelung mainly investigates Soil water, Environmental chemistry, Organic matter, Soil organic matter and Agronomy. His Soil water study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Nutrient and Mineralogy. His Environmental chemistry research includes themes of Microorganism, Fractionation, Silt and Soil contamination.

His Organic matter study combines topics in areas such as Clay minerals, Lignin, Mineralization and Chemical composition. The Bulk soil research Wulf Amelung does as part of his general Soil organic matter study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Muramic acid, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His Agronomy study incorporates themes from Nitrate, Galactosamine, Glucosamine and Arable land.

His most cited work include:

  • Comparison of quantification methods to measure fire‐derived (black/elemental) carbon in soils and sediments using reference materials from soil, water, sediment and the atmosphere (657 citations)
  • Biogeochemistry of paddy soils (582 citations)
  • Interactive priming of black carbon and glucose mineralisation (456 citations)

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

Wulf Amelung focuses on Soil water, Agronomy, Environmental chemistry, Organic matter and Soil organic matter. In most of his Soil water studies, his work intersects topics such as Nutrient. His Agronomy research includes elements of Leaching, Bulk soil and Arable land.

His research investigates the connection between Environmental chemistry and topics such as Phosphorus that intersect with issues in Phosphate. His study in Organic matter is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Fractionation and Phaeozem. His Soil organic matter research integrates issues from Silt, Soil chemistry and Soil horizon.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Soil water (51.28%)
  • Agronomy (36.19%)
  • Environmental chemistry (34.11%)

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

  • Soil water (51.28%)
  • Environmental chemistry (34.11%)
  • Phosphorus (18.33%)

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

His primary areas of study are Soil water, Environmental chemistry, Phosphorus, Agronomy and Topsoil. Soil water is the subject of his research, which falls under Soil science. His studies in Environmental chemistry integrate themes in fields like Colloid, Organic matter, Nitrogen and Chemical composition.

His studies deal with areas such as Rhizotron and Phosphate as well as Phosphorus. His study in the field of Fertilizer is also linked to topics like Term. His Topsoil study incorporates themes from Soil carbon, Total organic carbon, Arid, Biomass and Subsoil.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Quantitative assessment of microbial necromass contribution to soil organic matter. (101 citations)
  • Apple Replant Disease: Causes and Mitigation Strategies. (32 citations)
  • Better estimates of soil carbon from geographical data: a revised global approach (21 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

Wulf Amelung spends much of his time researching Soil water, Environmental chemistry, Soil carbon, Subsoil and Topsoil. The study incorporates disciplines such as Fertilizer, Iron cycle and Biome in addition to Soil water. His studies examine the connections between Environmental chemistry and genetics, as well as such issues in Phosphorus, with regards to Calcareous and Soil organic matter.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Yield, Environmental protection, Forestry, Ecosystem and Evapotranspiration. His Subsoil study also includes fields such as

  • Soil horizon which intersects with area such as Leaf area index, Sowing, Crop rotation and Agronomy,
  • Physical geography together with Sediment and Paleoclimatology,
  • Transect which is related to area like Microbial population biology, δ13C and δ15N. The concepts of his Topsoil study are interwoven with issues in Land use, land-use change and forestry, Land use, Biomass, Secondary forest and Arid.
