1987 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Ecosystem

John S. Kimball focuses on Climatology, Remote sensing, Climate change, Primary production and Evapotranspiration. His work deals with themes such as Special sensor microwave/imager, Brightness temperature, Vegetation and Phenology, which intersect with Remote sensing. His work focuses on many connections between Climate change and other disciplines, such as Carbon sequestration, that overlap with his field of interest in High latitude.

His Primary production study also includes

  • Atmospheric sciences and Permafrost most often made with reference to Growing season,
  • Taiga, which have a strong connection to Carbon cycle. His study in Evapotranspiration is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Meteorology, Precipitation and Water cycle. John S. Kimball combines subjects such as Soil map, FluxNet, Radiometer and Radiometry with his study of Meteorology.

His most cited work include:

  • The Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) Mission (1780 citations)
  • Recent decline in the global land evapotranspiration trend due to limited moisture supply (1225 citations)
  • Intercomparison, interpretation, and assessment of spring phenology in North America estimated from remote sensing for 1982-2006 (689 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Remote sensing, Atmospheric sciences, Climatology, Water content and Vegetation. John S. Kimball has researched Remote sensing in several fields, including Snow, Meteorology and Scatterometer. The concepts of his Atmospheric sciences study are interwoven with issues in Eddy covariance, Ecosystem, Growing season and Hydrology, Evapotranspiration.

His Climatology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Latitude, Primary production, Climate change, Arctic and Precipitation. His Water content research incorporates themes from Soil science, Data products and Data assimilation. His work on Normalized Difference Vegetation Index as part of general Vegetation research is frequently linked to Land cover, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Remote sensing (30.00%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (25.59%)
  • Climatology (23.53%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Atmospheric sciences (25.59%)
  • Water content (19.71%)
  • Remote sensing (30.00%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Atmospheric sciences, Water content, Remote sensing, Ecosystem and Evapotranspiration. His Atmospheric sciences research includes elements of Soil water, Soil carbon, Permafrost, Carbon cycle and Brightness temperature. His Water content research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Productivity, Precipitation, Crop yield, Vegetation and Data assimilation.

His Remote sensing study which covers Flood myth that intersects with El Niño Southern Oscillation. His Ecosystem study incorporates themes from Climate change, Leaf water and Physical geography. Evapotranspiration is the subject of his research, which falls under Hydrology.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Large loss of CO2 in winter observed across the northern permafrost region (62 citations)
  • Version 4 of the SMAP Level-4 Soil Moisture algorithm and data product (25 citations)
  • Integrating snow science and wildlife ecology in Arctic-boreal North America (20 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Climate change

His main research concerns Atmospheric sciences, Remote sensing, Water content, Evapotranspiration and Arctic. The Atmospheric sciences study combines topics in areas such as Ecosystem and Growing season. In his study, Water use is strongly linked to Vegetation, which falls under the umbrella field of Remote sensing.

His Water content research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Productivity, Agricultural productivity, Vapour Pressure Deficit, Precipitation and Data assimilation. His studies in Evapotranspiration integrate themes in fields like Scale and Crop production. John S. Kimball interconnects Snow, Permafrost, Boreal and Soil water in the investigation of issues within Arctic.
