Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Ecosystem

His primary scientific interests are in Remote sensing, Lidar, Vegetation, Satellite imagery and Canopy. The concepts of his Remote sensing study are interwoven with issues in Land cover and Photochemical Reflectance Index. The study incorporates disciplines such as Sampling, Footprint, Forest inventory and Basal area in addition to Lidar.

His Vegetation research incorporates themes from Primary production, Soil water, Eddy covariance and Multispectral pattern recognition. His study with Canopy involves better knowledge in Ecology. His Remote sensing study incorporates themes from Variety and Ecosystem.

His most cited work include:

  • Essential biodiversity variables (723 citations)
  • Using airborne and ground-based ranging lidar to measure canopy structure in Australian forests (395 citations)
  • A new data fusion model for high spatial- and temporal-resolution mapping of forest disturbance based on Landsat and MODIS (388 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Remote sensing, Vegetation, Ecology, Lidar and Canopy. His Remote sensing research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Land cover, Forest inventory and Scale. His study in Vegetation is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Productivity, Primary production and Seasonality.

His work investigates the relationship between Ecology and topics such as Physical geography that intersect with problems in Boreal, Taiga, Range and Ecozone. His Lidar research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Forestry, Basal area and Meteorology. His Canopy study deals with Atmospheric sciences intersecting with Eddy covariance.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Remote sensing (45.85%)
  • Vegetation (23.69%)
  • Ecology (23.52%)

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

  • Remote sensing (45.85%)
  • Vegetation (23.69%)
  • Physical geography (14.04%)

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

Nicholas C. Coops spends much of his time researching Remote sensing, Vegetation, Physical geography, Lidar and Forest inventory. His biological study focuses on Photogrammetry. His research on Vegetation concerns the broader Ecology.

The various areas that Nicholas C. Coops examines in his Physical geography study include Boreal, Satellite imagery, Ecosystem, Disturbance and Land cover. His work carried out in the field of Satellite imagery brings together such families of science as Remote sensing and Land use. As a part of the same scientific family, Nicholas C. Coops mostly works in the field of Forest inventory, focusing on Basal area and, on occasion, Mean squared error and Plot.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Land cover 2.0 (108 citations)
  • Large-area mapping of Canadian boreal forest cover, height, biomass and other structural attributes using Landsat composites and lidar plots (78 citations)
  • Disturbance-informed annual land cover classification maps of Canada's forested ecosystems for a 29-year Landsat time series. (71 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Ecosystem

His main research concerns Remote sensing, Physical geography, Lidar, Forest inventory and Vegetation. The Remote sensing study combines topics in areas such as Land cover, Canopy and Random forest. His studies deal with areas such as Spatial ecology and Ecosystem, Disturbance as well as Physical geography.

His research in Lidar focuses on subjects like Ecotone, which are connected to Greening, Temperate forest and Contrast. His Forest inventory study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Point cloud, Basal area, Mean squared error, Photogrammetry and Laser scanning. His Vegetation study combines topics in areas such as Mammal, Biodiversity and Species richness.
