Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Remote sensing
  • Meteorology
  • Climate change

His scientific interests lie mostly in Remote sensing, Water content, Radiometry, Brightness temperature and Vegetation. Jean-Pierre Wigneron has included themes like Radiative transfer, Meteorology and Satellite in his Remote sensing study. His work deals with themes such as Moisture, Soil science, Soil water and Polarization, which intersect with Water content.

His study looks at the relationship between Brightness temperature and topics such as Interception, which overlap with Mulch and Single-scattering albedo. His work carried out in the field of Vegetation brings together such families of science as Land cover, Forest ecology, Biosphere and Leaf area index. His Radiometer study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Salinity and C band.

His most cited work include:

  • Soil moisture retrieval from space: the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission (1199 citations)
  • The SMOS Mission: New Tool for Monitoring Key Elements ofthe Global Water Cycle (1156 citations)
  • The SMOS Soil Moisture Retrieval Algorithm (614 citations)

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

Jean-Pierre Wigneron focuses on Remote sensing, Water content, Radiometer, Vegetation and Radiometry. His Remote sensing study incorporates themes from Radiative transfer, Meteorology, Satellite and Brightness temperature. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Aperture synthesis and Interferometry.

His Brightness temperature research includes themes of Atmospheric radiative transfer codes and Biosphere. In his study, Precipitation is strongly linked to Atmospheric sciences, which falls under the umbrella field of Water content. He interconnects Land cover, Canopy, Biomass and Leaf area index in the investigation of issues within Vegetation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Remote sensing (61.29%)
  • Water content (58.81%)
  • Radiometer (22.08%)

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

  • Water content (58.81%)
  • Remote sensing (61.29%)
  • Satellite (12.41%)

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

Jean-Pierre Wigneron mainly focuses on Water content, Remote sensing, Satellite, Vegetation and Atmospheric sciences. His Water content study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Soil science, Soil water, Salinity, Meteorology and Normalized Difference Vegetation Index. His Salinity research includes elements of Climatology and Earth observation.

His Remote sensing research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Scattering and Vegetation optical depth, Brightness temperature. His study in Vegetation is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Land cover, Evergreen, Leaf area index and Albedo. His research investigates the connection between Atmospheric sciences and topics such as Precipitation that intersect with issues in Water cycle.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Modelling the Passive Microwave Signature from Land Surfaces: A Review of Recent Results and Application to the L-Band SMOS SMAP Soil Moisture Retrieval Algorithms (164 citations)
  • Overview of SMOS performance in terms of global soil moisture monitoring after six years in operation (145 citations)
  • SMOS-IC: An Alternative SMOS Soil Moisture and Vegetation Optical Depth Product (117 citations)

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

  • Remote sensing
  • Ecosystem
  • Climate change

His primary areas of investigation include Water content, Remote sensing, Vegetation, Satellite and Atmospheric sciences. His Water content research incorporates elements of Soil organic matter, Soil water, Climate change, Precipitation and Radiative transfer. Jean-Pierre Wigneron is studying Radiometer, which is a component of Remote sensing.

His Vegetation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Land cover, GNSS applications, Evergreen and Albedo. His Satellite research incorporates themes from Biomass and Greening. His research integrates issues of Deforestation, Aboveground carbon, Ecosystem, Biome and Spatial distribution in his study of Atmospheric sciences.
