Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oceanography
  • Meteorology
  • Statistics

Jordi Font mostly deals with Mediterranean sea, Oceanography, Remote sensing, Mediterranean climate and Radiometry. His Mediterranean sea research includes themes of Turbulence, Vorticity and Mesoscale meteorology. His Remote sensing research integrates issues from Satellite and Brightness temperature.

His Mediterranean climate research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Wind stress, Climatology and Physical oceanography. Radiometry connects with themes related to Meteorology in his study. His Meteorology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Salinity and Radiometer.

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)
  • SMOS: The Challenging Sea Surface Salinity Measurement From Space (299 citations)

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

His main research concerns Remote sensing, Salinity, Meteorology, Oceanography and Climatology. His Remote sensing study combines topics in areas such as Aperture synthesis, Sea surface salinity and Brightness temperature. Jordi Font combines subjects such as Subtropics, Emissivity, Hydrology, Water content and Microwave radiometry with his study of Salinity.

His Meteorology research includes elements of Seawater, Brightness, Satellite and Remote sensing. His studies deal with areas such as Mediterranean climate and Mediterranean sea as well as Oceanography. His Climatology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Altimeter and Structural basin.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Remote sensing (35.47%)
  • Salinity (32.45%)
  • Meteorology (29.06%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2018)?

  • Oceanography (28.68%)
  • Salinity (32.45%)
  • Remote sensing (35.47%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Oceanography, Salinity, Remote sensing, Meteorology and Climatology. Jordi Font has researched Oceanography in several fields, including Subtropics and Mediterranean climate. The Mediterranean sea and Mediterranean Basin research he does as part of his general Mediterranean climate study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Formation water, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.

In his research, Ocean gyre is intimately related to Cruise, which falls under the overarching field of Salinity. His Remote sensing research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cartography, Estimation and Brightness temperature. He has included themes like Drifter and Satellite in his Meteorology study.

Between 2012 and 2018, his most popular works were:

  • HYMEX , a 10-year Multidisciplinary Program on the mediterranean water cycle. (238 citations)
  • Physical forcing and physical/biochemical variability of the Mediterranean Sea: a review of unresolved issues and directions for future research (115 citations)
  • Interaction of dense shelf water cascading and open-sea convection in the northwestern Mediterranean during winter 2012 (107 citations)

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

  • Oceanography
  • Meteorology
  • Statistics

His primary areas of study are Oceanography, Salinity, Remote sensing, Meteorology and Mediterranean sea. His Salinity research includes elements of Drifter, Satellite, Ocean gyre and Water content. Jordi Font studies Remote sensing, namely Radiometer.

His Radiometer study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Aperture synthesis and Interferometry. Many of his research projects under Meteorology are closely connected to Total electron content with Total electron content, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His work carried out in the field of Mediterranean sea brings together such families of science as Continental shelf, Climatology, Water resource management and Forcing.
