  • The Aquarius/SAC-D mission: Designed to meet the salinity remote-sensing challenge (315 citations)
  • Microwave Radar and Radiometric Remote Sensing (228 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Remote sensing, Radiometer, Environmental science, Meteorology and Microwave radiometer. In his research on the topic of Remote sensing, Global Precipitation Measurement is strongly related with Calibration. The various areas that Christopher S. Ruf examines in his Radiometer study include Synthetic aperture radar, Brightness, Electromagnetic interference and Microwave imaging.

His work on Wind speed, Tropical cyclone and Storm as part of general Meteorology research is frequently linked to Cyclone, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Microwave radiometer research integrates issues from Altimeter, Troposphere, Hurricane Research Division and Nadir. Christopher S. Ruf combines subjects such as Interference and Antenna with his study of Radiometry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Remote sensing (67.38%)
  • Radiometer (46.34%)
  • Environmental science (44.82%)

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

  • Remote sensing (67.38%)
  • Environmental science (44.82%)
  • Meteorology (36.89%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Remote sensing, Environmental science, Meteorology, Wind speed and Satellite system. His Remote sensing research is multidisciplinary, relying on both GNSS applications, Satellite, Global Positioning System, GPS signals and Calibration. His studies in Calibration integrate themes in fields like Sea surface temperature, Radiometer and Brightness temperature.

His work on Storm surge, Data assimilation and Wind shear as part of general Meteorology study is frequently linked to Population, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Wind speed, narrowing it down to issues related to the Surface wave, and often Scattering. Christopher S. Ruf has included themes like Forward scatter and Systems engineering in his Satellite system study.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • New Ocean Winds Satellite Mission to Probe Hurricanes and Tropical Convection (154 citations)
  • Wind Speed Retrieval Algorithm for the Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System (CYGNSS) Mission (97 citations)
  • First Spaceborne Observation of Sea Surface Height Using GPS‐Reflectometry (76 citations)

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

  • Optics
  • Meteorology
  • Radar

His scientific interests lie mostly in Remote sensing, Environmental science, Satellite system, Cyclone and Wind speed. His study on Radiometer is often connected to Reflectometry as part of broader study in Remote sensing. His Radiometer research incorporates themes from Global Precipitation Measurement, Microwave, Brightness temperature and Mixed-signal integrated circuit.

His Satellite system research includes elements of Forward scatter, Estimator and Antenna. His research in Wind speed intersects with topics in Sea state and Significant wave height. His Tropical cyclone study in the realm of Meteorology connects with subjects such as Response time and Mean square.
