Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Meteorology
  • Agriculture
  • Climate change

His main research concerns Evapotranspiration, Remote sensing, Water content, Climatology and Meteorology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Water security, Agriculture, Soil texture, Crop yield and Moisture in addition to Evapotranspiration. In his study, Yield is inextricably linked to Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer, which falls within the broad field of Remote sensing.

His studies deal with areas such as Vegetation, Anomaly, Data assimilation and Thermal infrared as well as Water content. His work in Climatology covers topics such as Precipitation which are related to areas like Water cycle. His work focuses on many connections between Meteorology and other disciplines, such as Geostationary orbit, that overlap with his field of interest in Satellite imagery, Polar orbit and Normalized Difference Vegetation Index.

His most cited work include:

  • Mapping daily evapotranspiration at field to continental scales using geostationary and polar orbiting satellite imagery (324 citations)
  • Remote sensing of drought: Progress, challenges and opportunities (285 citations)
  • Evaluation of Drought Indices Based on Thermal Remote Sensing of Evapotranspiration over the Continental United States (271 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Evapotranspiration, Remote sensing, Water content, Meteorology and Climatology. His research on Evapotranspiration also deals with topics like

  • Precipitation which is related to area like Moisture,
  • Water resources, which have a strong connection to Agriculture and Climate change. The concepts of his Remote sensing study are interwoven with issues in Water use and Geostationary orbit.

His Water content research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Soil science, Soil water, Atmospheric sciences, Vegetation and Data assimilation. His work on Weather Research and Forecasting Model and Weather forecasting as part of general Meteorology study is frequently linked to Surface and Planetary boundary layer, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Climatology research integrates issues from Drainage basin, Hydrology and Water cycle.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Evapotranspiration (50.00%)
  • Remote sensing (34.57%)
  • Water content (35.11%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Evapotranspiration (50.00%)
  • Remote sensing (34.57%)
  • Water content (35.11%)

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

Christopher Hain mainly focuses on Evapotranspiration, Remote sensing, Water content, Atmospheric sciences and Meteorology. His Evapotranspiration study is concerned with Hydrology in general. His work on Synthetic aperture radar as part of general Remote sensing study is frequently connected to Cloud cover, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

The Water content study combines topics in areas such as Assimilation and Soil science. His research in Atmospheric sciences intersects with topics in Tropical cyclone and Water budget. His Meteorology study combines topics in areas such as Ocean surface topography and Surface water.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • ECOSTRESS: NASA's Next Generation Mission to Measure Evapotranspiration From the International Space Station (38 citations)
  • Evaluation and comparison of multiple evapotranspiration data models over the contiguous United States: Implications for the next phase of NLDAS (NLDAS-Testbed) development (19 citations)
  • Investigating impacts of drought and disturbance on evapotranspiration over a forested landscape in North Carolina, USA using high spatiotemporal resolution remotely sensed data (14 citations)

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

  • Meteorology
  • Agriculture
  • Climate change

Christopher Hain mostly deals with Evapotranspiration, Remote sensing, Synthetic aperture radar, Data assimilation and Water balance. His Evapotranspiration study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as International Space Station, Eddy covariance and Latent heat, Meteorology. His research integrates issues of Forest management, Disturbance, Land cover, Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer and Stand development in his study of Remote sensing.

His Synthetic aperture radar study incorporates themes from Remote sensing, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index and Agricultural crops. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Soil water, Irrigation management and Water content. His Water balance research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Climatology, FluxNet, Model selection and Water cycle.
