Fields of interest:

  • spatial analysis of hydro-physical properties of agricultural soils in selected watersheds,
  • soil water balance
  • application of laser diffraction to determine particle size distribution of agricultural soil,
  • GIS modelling of water erosion and sediment transport – application of various models to estimate the soil loss rate and sediment delivery ratio
  • effect of biochar application on gas emissions (CO2 and N2O) determined by closed chamber method, crop yield and selected hydro-physical properties,
