Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Hydrology
  • Meteorology

Luca Brocca mainly investigates Water content, Soil water, Hydrology, Surface runoff and Remote sensing. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Soil science, Precipitation, Spatial variability, Scatterometer and Moisture. His research in Soil water tackles topics such as Drainage which are related to areas like Drainage basin, Evapotranspiration, Rainfall runoff and Geostatistics.

When carried out as part of a general Hydrology research project, his work on Irrigation is frequently linked to work in Scale and Accurate estimation, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His research in Surface runoff intersects with topics in Infiltration and Flood myth. His Remote sensing research includes elements of Meteorology, Numerical weather prediction and Data cube.

His most cited work include:

  • Soil moisture estimation through ASCAT and AMSR-E sensors: An intercomparison and validation study across Europe (384 citations)
  • ESA CCI Soil Moisture for improved Earth system understanding : State-of-the art and future directions (360 citations)
  • Evaluation of the ESA CCI soil moisture product using ground-based observations (322 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Water content, Hydrology, Meteorology, Remote sensing and Precipitation. His research integrates issues of Soil science, Soil water, Scatterometer, Surface runoff and Moisture in his study of Water content. His work in Hydrology tackles topics such as Spatial variability which are related to areas like Sampling.

In general Meteorology study, his work on Rain gauge often relates to the realm of Scale, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His work in the fields of Remote sensing, such as Radiometer, intersects with other areas such as Temporal resolution. His work carried out in the field of Precipitation brings together such families of science as Climatology and Hydrological modelling.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Water content (60.54%)
  • Hydrology (34.05%)
  • Meteorology (30.27%)

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

  • Water content (60.54%)
  • Remote sensing (28.65%)
  • Precipitation (22.16%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Water content, Remote sensing, Precipitation, Scatterometer and Climatology. His Water content research is classified as research in Hydrology. Luca Brocca focuses mostly in the field of Remote sensing, narrowing it down to topics relating to Calibration and, in certain cases, Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient.

His Scatterometer study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Meteorology and Data assimilation. His Climatology study incorporates themes from Distributed element model, Spatial analysis, DSSAT, Field and Geographic information system. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Moisture, Crop simulation model, Hydrology and Evapotranspiration.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Twenty-three unsolved problems in hydrology (UPH)–a community perspective (144 citations)
  • Measurements and Observations in the XXI century (MOXXI): innovation and multi-disciplinarity to sense the hydrological cycle (84 citations)
  • Toward Global Soil Moisture Monitoring With Sentinel-1: Harnessing Assets and Overcoming Obstacles (78 citations)

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

  • Statistics
  • Hydrology
  • Meteorology

His primary areas of study are Water content, Scatterometer, Remote sensing, Precipitation and Water cycle. His studies in Water content integrate themes in fields like Synthetic aperture radar, Data cube and Irrigation. Luca Brocca conducted interdisciplinary study in his works that combined Scatterometer and Fusion.

Precipitation is a primary field of his research addressed under Meteorology. His Water cycle study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Data assimilation and Data science. Luca Brocca focuses mostly in the field of Hydrology, narrowing it down to matters related to PERSIANN and, in some cases, Soil water.
