Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Optics
  • Ecosystem

His scientific interests lie mostly in Remote sensing, Leaf area index, Canopy, Vegetation and Atmospheric sciences. His study in Remote sensing is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Black spruce, Pixel, Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer, Radiative transfer and Normalized Difference Vegetation Index. His study explores the link between Leaf area index and topics such as Land cover that cross with problems in Evapotranspiration.

His Canopy study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Shrub, Boreal, Radiance, Spatial distribution and Taiga. His Vegetation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Photosynthetically active radiation, Multispectral Scanner, Satellite imagery and Deciduous. The concepts of his Atmospheric sciences study are interwoven with issues in Ecology, Growing season, Ecosystem, Carbon cycle and Boreal ecosystem.

His most cited work include:

  • Defining leaf area index for non‐flat leaves (865 citations)
  • Leaf area index of boreal forests: theory, techniques, and measurements (783 citations)
  • Retrieving Leaf Area Index of Boreal Conifer Forests Using Landsat TM Images (617 citations)

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

His main research concerns Remote sensing, Atmospheric sciences, Leaf area index, Vegetation and Canopy. Jing M. Chen interconnects Bidirectional reflectance distribution function, Pixel, Land cover, Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer and Normalized Difference Vegetation Index in the investigation of issues within Remote sensing. His Atmospheric sciences research includes themes of Eddy covariance, Ecosystem, Carbon cycle, Carbon sink and Terrestrial ecosystem.

His Ecosystem research integrates issues from Productivity, Climatology and Climate change. Jing M. Chen usually deals with Terrestrial ecosystem and limits it to topics linked to Hydrology and Soil water. His Leaf area index research includes elements of Primary production, Black spruce, Taiga and Deciduous.
