Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Soil water
  • Erosion

Xinhua Peng mainly focuses on Soil water, Soil science, Soil structure, Ultisol and Shrinkage. His Soil water research incorporates elements of Geotechnical engineering and Feces. Xinhua Peng works mostly in the field of Soil structure, limiting it down to concerns involving Water content and, occasionally, Soil morphology.

Xinhua Peng has researched Ultisol in several fields, including Aggregate and Agronomy, Human fertilization. His Shrinkage study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Void ratio and Gleysol. His research integrates issues of Carbon sequestration, Carbonization, Biochar and Soil fertility in his study of Field capacity.

His most cited work include:

  • Temperature- and duration-dependent rice straw-derived biochar: Characteristics and its effects on soil properties of an Ultisol in southern China (361 citations)
  • Spatial variability of soil properties affected by grazing intensity in Inner Mongolia grassland (133 citations)
  • Modeling Soil Shrinkage Curve across a Wide Range of Soil Types (110 citations)

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

Xinhua Peng spends much of his time researching Soil water, Soil science, Soil structure, Agronomy and Water content. Xinhua Peng has included themes like Geotechnical engineering, Hydrology, Shrinkage, Paddy field and Grazing in his Soil water study. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Soil science, Organic matter is strongly linked to Aggregate.

His studies in Soil structure integrate themes in fields like Soil organic matter, Soil type, Tillage and Bulk density. His Agronomy research integrates issues from Soil carbon, Ultisol, Soil fertility and Vertisol. The Field capacity research Xinhua Peng does as part of his general Water content study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Stability, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Soil water (53.47%)
  • Soil science (40.59%)
  • Soil structure (38.61%)

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

  • Soil water (53.47%)
  • Red soil (10.89%)
  • Soil structure (38.61%)

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

Xinhua Peng focuses on Soil water, Red soil, Soil structure, Agronomy and Soil science. His work carried out in the field of Soil water brings together such families of science as Environmental chemistry and Water content. His Soil structure research includes themes of Hydraulic conductivity, Nutrient, Tillage and Bulk density.

His Agronomy research incorporates themes from Soil carbon and Bulk soil. His Soil carbon research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Soil test and Human fertilization. In the field of Soil science, his study on Richards equation overlaps with subjects such as Bedrock.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Does animal manure application improve soil aggregation? Insights from nine long-term fertilization experiments (32 citations)
  • Biochar enhances soil hydraulic function but not soil aggregation in a sandy loam (22 citations)
  • Accumulation of nitrate and dissolved organic nitrogen at depth in a red soil Critical Zone (17 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Soil water
  • Erosion

His scientific interests lie mostly in Soil structure, Red soil, Hydraulic conductivity, Soil water and Loam. His Soil structure research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Organic matter, Nutrient, Soil fertility and Bulk density. Xinhua Peng combines subjects such as Soil carbon, Paddy field, Agronomy, Manure and Streamflow with his study of Red soil.

The various areas that Xinhua Peng examines in his Soil water study include Fertilizer, Wet season and Drainage basin, Groundwater, Hydrology. His work in Loam tackles topics such as Nitrate which are related to areas like Soil science. The concepts of his Soil science study are interwoven with issues in Reactive nitrogen and Surface runoff.
