Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Radar
  • Optics
  • Statistics

Fawwaz T. Ulaby mainly focuses on Remote sensing, Radar, Water content, Microwave and Synthetic aperture radar. His Remote sensing study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Soil moisture content and Scattering, Microwave scattering. His research integrates issues of Snow and Canopy in his study of Scattering.

The Radar study combines topics in areas such as Polarimetry, Microwave response and Backscatter. The study incorporates disciplines such as Soil science, Soil water, Vegetation and Dielectric in addition to Water content. Fawwaz T. Ulaby studied Synthetic aperture radar and Radar imaging that intersect with Pixel.

His most cited work include:

  • Microwave Remote Sensing, Active and Passive (2814 citations)
  • Microwave Dielectric Behavior of Wet Soil-Part II: Dielectric Mixing Models (1449 citations)
  • An empirical model and an inversion technique for radar scattering from bare soil surfaces (977 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Remote sensing, Radar, Scattering, Radar imaging and Backscatter. Fawwaz T. Ulaby mostly deals with Synthetic aperture radar in his studies of Remote sensing. His studies deal with areas such as Polarimetry and Meteorology as well as Radar.

Fawwaz T. Ulaby works mostly in the field of Scattering, limiting it down to concerns involving Dielectric and, occasionally, Microwave. His research investigates the connection between Optics and topics such as Surface roughness that intersect with problems in Surface finish. His study in Water content is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Soil texture, Soil science, Soil water, Vegetation and Moisture.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Remote sensing (59.54%)
  • Radar (40.21%)
  • Scattering (26.55%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1998-2017)?

  • Remote sensing (59.54%)
  • Radar imaging (23.97%)
  • Radar (40.21%)

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

Fawwaz T. Ulaby focuses on Remote sensing, Radar imaging, Radar, Synthetic aperture radar and Artificial intelligence. His research on Remote sensing focuses in particular on Backscatter. His Radar imaging research focuses on Constant false alarm rate and how it connects with Correlation function and Point target.

Fawwaz T. Ulaby combines subjects such as Extremely high frequency and Radio spectrum with his study of Radar. Fawwaz T. Ulaby interconnects Image resolution, Remote sensing and Sensor fusion in the investigation of issues within Synthetic aperture radar. His work deals with themes such as Soil science, Vegetation, Radiometer and Radiometry, which intersect with Water content.

Between 1998 and 2017, his most popular works were:

  • SAR speckle reduction using wavelet denoising and Markov random field modeling (326 citations)
  • Statistical properties of logarithmically transformed speckle (243 citations)
  • Microwave Radar and Radiometric Remote Sensing (228 citations)

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

  • Radar
  • Optics
  • Statistics

Remote sensing, Radar, Backscatter, Scattering and Synthetic aperture radar are his primary areas of study. His work on Microwave backscattering as part of general Remote sensing research is frequently linked to Sigma, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Radar, narrowing it down to issues related to the Extremely high frequency, and often Signal processing, Inverse problem, Lossy compression and Cylinder.

His work carried out in the field of Backscatter brings together such families of science as Soil science, Linear regression, C band, L band and Water content. His Scattering research incorporates themes from Polarimetry, Soil moisture content and Atomic physics. His Synthetic aperture radar study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Composite material, Speckle pattern, Fuzzy logic and Sensor fusion.
