2019 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
John R. Townshend mainly focuses on Remote sensing, Land cover, Vegetation, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index and Advanced very-high-resolution radiometer. The various areas that John R. Townshend examines in his Remote sensing study include Data set and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer. His research investigates the link between Land cover and topics such as Biosphere that cross with problems in Estimation theory and Leaf area index.
His Vegetation research incorporates elements of Decision tree, Algorithm, Multispectral Scanner and Climatology. His work carried out in the field of Normalized Difference Vegetation Index brings together such families of science as Cartography, Scale and Image resolution. His research integrates issues of Mixture model, Agricultural land, Tropics and Ecosystem in his study of Advanced very-high-resolution radiometer.
Remote sensing, Land cover, Vegetation, Remote sensing and Advanced very-high-resolution radiometer are his primary areas of study. He has researched Remote sensing in several fields, including Image resolution, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer. His Land cover study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Pixel, Radiometry and Scale.
While the research belongs to areas of Radiometry, John R. Townshend spends his time largely on the problem of Data set, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Data processing. His work is dedicated to discovering how Vegetation, Multispectral Scanner are connected with Cartography and Thematic Mapper and other disciplines. His studies in Remote sensing integrate themes in fields like Forestry and Global change.
John R. Townshend mainly investigates Remote sensing, Land cover, Forest cover, Physical geography and Vegetation. His Remote sensing research includes themes of Image resolution and Global change. John R. Townshend interconnects Sampling, Change detection, Sample and Scale in the investigation of issues within Land cover.
His Physical geography research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Size frequency, Forest landscape and Vegetation cover. His Vegetation research includes elements of Training set, Environmental change, Spectroradiometer, Protected area and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer. His study in the field of Forest transition also crosses realms of High resolution.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Remote sensing, Land cover, Change detection, Land use and Spectroradiometer. His Remote sensing research integrates issues from Image resolution and Land cover change detection. His research investigates the connection with Land cover and areas like Scale which intersect with concerns in Categorical variable, Propagation of uncertainty and Pixel.
His Change detection study also includes fields such as
