1995 - IEEE Fellow For contributions to the development of spaceborne microwave radiometry for remote sensing of the Earth.

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Remote sensing
  • Meteorology
  • Optics

Eni G. Njoku focuses on Remote sensing, Radiometer, Water content, Meteorology and Radiometry. His studies in Remote sensing integrate themes in fields like Algorithm, Radiative transfer and Brightness temperature. His research in Radiometer tackles topics such as Data assimilation which are related to areas like Carbon sink.

His Water content study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Moisture, Soil water and Atmospheric model. His Meteorology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Soil map and Scanning multichannel microwave radiometer. His research investigates the connection between Radiometry and topics such as Interference that intersect with issues in Residual, Magnitude, Instrumentation and Microwave radiometry.

His most cited work include:

  • The Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) Mission (1780 citations)
  • Soil moisture retrieval from AMSR-E (1126 citations)
  • Passive microwave remote sensing of soil moisture (556 citations)

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

Eni G. Njoku mostly deals with Remote sensing, Water content, Radiometer, Radiometry and Meteorology. Eni G. Njoku has included themes like Moisture and Brightness temperature in his Remote sensing study. His Brightness temperature research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Scatterometer and Atmospheric radiative transfer codes.

His Water content course of study focuses on Soil science and Hydrology. Eni G. Njoku works mostly in the field of Radiometer, limiting it down to topics relating to Atmospheric sciences and, in certain cases, Radiative transfer. Eni G. Njoku is interested in Sea surface temperature, which is a field of Meteorology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Remote sensing (73.01%)
  • Water content (54.87%)
  • Radiometer (40.71%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2018)?

  • Remote sensing (73.01%)
  • Water content (54.87%)
  • Radiometer (40.71%)

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

Eni G. Njoku mainly focuses on Remote sensing, Water content, Radiometer, Brightness temperature and Meteorology. His work on L band, Synthetic aperture radar and Backscatter as part of general Remote sensing study is frequently connected to Surface roughness and Calibration, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His work deals with themes such as Moisture and Soil science, Soil water, which intersect with Water content.

The study of Radiometer is intertwined with the study of Soil map in a number of ways. His research integrates issues of Scatterometer and Atmospheric sciences in his study of Brightness temperature. His research investigates the connection between Meteorology and topics such as Brightness that intersect with problems in Radiometry.

Between 2014 and 2018, his most popular works were:

  • Validation of SMAP surface soil moisture products with core validation sites (292 citations)
  • Assessment of the SMAP Passive Soil Moisture Product (273 citations)
  • The Soil Moisture Active Passive Validation Experiment 2012 (SMAPVEX12): Prelaunch Calibration and Validation of the SMAP Soil Moisture Algorithms (147 citations)
