Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Optics
  • Radar
  • Statistics

Joel T. Johnson spends much of his time researching Scattering, Optics, Monte Carlo method, Computational physics and Remote sensing. His Scattering study incorporates themes from Method of moments, Surface and Bistatic radar. His research in Optics intersects with topics in Iterative method and Dielectric.

His Remote sensing research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Radar and Brightness temperature. His study in Radiometer is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Interference, Meteorology, L band and Radiometry. His work in the fields of Meteorology, such as Atmosphere and Data assimilation, overlaps with other areas such as Carbon sink.

His most cited work include:

  • The Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) Mission (1780 citations)
  • A novel acceleration algorithm for the computation of scattering from rough surfaces with the forward‐backward method (166 citations)
  • New Ocean Winds Satellite Mission to Probe Hurricanes and Tropical Convection (154 citations)
