Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Ecology
  • Artificial intelligence

José M. C. Pereira mainly focuses on Vegetation, Remote sensing, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, Thematic Mapper and Climatology. His Vegetation study incorporates themes from Land cover and Meteorology, Satellite imagery. His Remote sensing study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Statistical hypothesis testing and Reference data.

His study in Normalized Difference Vegetation Index is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Bioclimatology and Advanced very-high-resolution radiometer. The concepts of his Thematic Mapper study are interwoven with issues in Spatial ecology, Cartography, Time series and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer. His research integrates issues of Spatial distribution and Precipitation in his study of Climatology.

His most cited work include:

  • A multiple criteria decision-making approach to GIS-based land suitability evaluation (369 citations)
  • Global wildland fire emissions from 1960 to 2000 (293 citations)
  • Modeling spatial patterns of fire occurrence in Mediterranean Europe using Multiple Regression and Random Forest (276 citations)

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

José M. C. Pereira mostly deals with Vegetation, Remote sensing, Land cover, Meteorology and Physical geography. His Vegetation study combines topics in areas such as Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Boreal and Land use. The study incorporates disciplines such as Precipitation and Seasonality in addition to Climatology.

His Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biomass, Greenhouse gas and Hydrology. His Remote sensing study deals with Normalized Difference Vegetation Index intersecting with Compositing. His research in Physical geography intersects with topics in Shrubland and Ecology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Vegetation (34.72%)
  • Remote sensing (24.54%)
  • Land cover (13.89%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Vegetation (34.72%)
  • Land use (11.11%)
  • Land cover (13.89%)

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

His main research concerns Vegetation, Land use, Land cover, Earth system science and Nonparametric statistics. Fire regime and Normalized Difference Vegetation Index are the primary areas of interest in his Vegetation study. The Land cover study combines topics in areas such as Image resolution, Climate change, Physical geography and Urban area.

In his research on the topic of Image resolution, Remote sensing is strongly related with Representation. He works mostly in the field of Remote sensing, limiting it down to topics relating to Fire season and, in certain cases, Forest management, as a part of the same area of interest. He has researched Earth system science in several fields, including Climatology and Seasonality.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Wildfire management in Mediterranean-type regions: paradigm change needed (49 citations)
  • How well do global burned area products represent fire patterns in the Brazilian Savannas biome? An accuracy assessment of the MCD64 collections (18 citations)
  • Ratio of Land Consumption Rate to Population Growth Rate—Analysis of Different Formulations Applied to Mainland Portugal (16 citations)

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

  • Statistics
  • Ecology
  • Artificial intelligence

José M. C. Pereira mainly investigates Vegetation, Earth system science, Land use, Physical geography and Land cover. His Vegetation research integrates issues from Statistic and Scale. His studies deal with areas such as Multiple comparisons problem, Nonparametric statistics, Econometrics, Identification and Spatial dependence as well as Earth system science.

His work carried out in the field of Land use brings together such families of science as Firefighting and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer. His study looks at the intersection of Physical geography and topics like Fire regime with Statistical dispersion, Precipitation, Generalized additive model and Shrubland. His Land cover research also works with subjects such as

  • Urban area together with Agriculture, Peninsula, Statistics and Urban sprawl,
  • Climate change, which have a strong connection to Remote sensing, Algorithm, Mapping algorithm and Grid.
