Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Ecosystem

Compton J. Tucker mainly investigates Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, Remote sensing, Vegetation, Climatology and Advanced very-high-resolution radiometer. Compton J. Tucker is interested in Enhanced vegetation index, which is a field of Normalized Difference Vegetation Index. His Remote sensing research includes elements of Arid, Biomass, Satellite and Water content.

The Vegetation study combines topics in areas such as Sea surface temperature, Meteorology, Satellite imagery, Growing season and Physical geography. His research integrates issues of Remote sensing, Plant cover, Vegetation dynamics and Phenology in his study of Climatology. His Advanced very-high-resolution radiometer research incorporates elements of Atmospheric correction, Photosynthetically active radiation and Solar zenith angle.

His most cited work include:

  • Red and photographic infrared linear combinations for monitoring vegetation (5943 citations)
  • Increased plant growth in the northern high latitudes from 1981 to 1991 (2739 citations)
  • Climate-driven increases in global terrestrial net primary production from 1982 to 1999. (2368 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Remote sensing, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, Vegetation, Climatology and Advanced very-high-resolution radiometer. His Remote sensing research includes themes of Satellite and Reflectivity. His work in the fields of Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, such as Enhanced vegetation index, intersects with other areas such as Vegetation.

He combines subjects such as Rift Valley fever, Growing season, Atmospheric sciences, Precipitation and Arid with his study of Vegetation. His work deals with themes such as Climate change and Outbreak, which intersect with Climatology. His Advanced very-high-resolution radiometer research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biomass, Land cover and Radiometry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Remote sensing (34.42%)
  • Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (33.77%)
  • Vegetation (30.19%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (33.77%)
  • Vegetation (30.19%)
  • Climatology (25.97%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, Vegetation, Climatology, Remote sensing and Tundra. In his papers, Compton J. Tucker integrates diverse fields, such as Normalized Difference Vegetation Index and Context. He has researched Vegetation in several fields, including Precipitation, Climate change, Ecosystem and Atmospheric sciences.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Outbreak, Rift Valley fever and Greenhouse gas in addition to Climatology. In general Remote sensing, his work in Remote sensing is often linked to Time series linking many areas of study. In his research, Permafrost is intimately related to Physical geography, which falls under the overarching field of Tundra.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Fast Plasma Investigation for Magnetospheric Multiscale (569 citations)
  • A Non-Stationary 1981-2012 AVHRR NDVI 3g Time Series (524 citations)
  • Greenness in semi-arid areas across the globe 1981–2007 — an Earth Observing Satellite based analysis of trends and drivers (364 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Ecosystem

Compton J. Tucker mostly deals with Vegetation, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, Climatology, Ecosystem and Remote sensing. His Vegetation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Outbreak, Climate change, Atmospheric sciences and Terrestrial ecosystem. His research in Normalized Difference Vegetation Index intersects with topics in Tundra and Amazon rainforest.

The various areas that Compton J. Tucker examines in his Climatology study include Precipitation and Growing season. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Soil water and Phenology. His Remote sensing study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Atmospheric correction, Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer and Aerosol.
