2016 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Meteorology
  • Aerosol
  • Remote sensing

His main research concerns Aerosol, AERONET, Atmospheric sciences, Remote sensing and Meteorology. His study in Aerosol is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Albedo and Climatology. His AERONET research integrates issues from Sea salt, Calibration, Sun photometer and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer.

His study on Troposphere is often connected to Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer as part of broader study in Atmospheric sciences. His Remote sensing research incorporates themes from Advanced very-high-resolution radiometer, Spectroradiometer and Photometer, Optics. His study in the field of Smoke, Data assimilation and Precipitation also crosses realms of Particle-size distribution.

His most cited work include:

  • AERONET-a federated instrument network and data archive for aerosol Characterization (5056 citations)
  • The MODIS Aerosol Algorithm, Products, and Validation (2261 citations)
  • Characteristics of maximum-value composite images from temporal AVHRR data (2184 citations)

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

Brent N. Holben mainly investigates Aerosol, AERONET, Remote sensing, Atmospheric sciences and Meteorology. Brent N. Holben has researched Aerosol in several fields, including Climatology and Satellite. His AERONET study combines topics in areas such as Optical depth, Absorption, Spectroradiometer, Mineral dust and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer.

He interconnects Photometer and Sky in the investigation of issues within Remote sensing. In his research on the topic of Atmospheric sciences, Forcing is strongly related with Radiative forcing. His studies in Meteorology integrate themes in fields like Wavelength and Radiometry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Aerosol (78.20%)
  • AERONET (51.83%)
  • Remote sensing (43.90%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Aerosol (78.20%)
  • AERONET (51.83%)
  • Remote sensing (43.90%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Aerosol, AERONET, Remote sensing, Atmospheric sciences and Meteorology. His work deals with themes such as Climatology and Satellite, which intersect with Aerosol. His AERONET research includes themes of Albedo, Photometer, Air quality index, Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer and Radiative transfer.

His Remote sensing research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Spectrometer, Optical depth and Geostationary Ocean Color Imager. His Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biomass burning, Atmosphere, Plateau and Radiative forcing. His Angstrom exponent study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Foothills, Mode, Extinction and Radiance.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The MERRA-2 Aerosol Reanalysis, 1980 Onward. Part I: System Description and Data Assimilation Evaluation (269 citations)
  • Advancements in the Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET) Version 3 database – automated near-real-time quality control algorithm with improved cloud screening for Sun photometer aerosol optical depth (AOD) measurements (235 citations)
  • Variation in global chemical composition of PM 2.5 : emerging results from SPARTAN (73 citations)

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

  • Meteorology
  • Aerosol
  • Remote sensing

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Aerosol, AERONET, Remote sensing, Meteorology and Satellite. Brent N. Holben mostly deals with Angstrom exponent in his studies of Aerosol. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Single-scattering albedo, Absorption, Sun photometer, Asian Dust and Photometer.

His research in Remote sensing intersects with topics in Spectroradiometer, Optical depth and Ocean color, Geostationary Ocean Color Imager. His research integrates issues of Global warming, Climate change and Data assimilation in his study of Satellite. Brent N. Holben works mostly in the field of Atmospheric sciences, limiting it down to topics relating to Atmosphere and, in certain cases, Radiative transfer, Sea breeze and Monsoon.
