Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Statistics

Peng Gong mostly deals with Remote sensing, Land cover, Climate change, Vegetation and Hydrology. His Remote sensing research focuses on Thematic Mapper in particular. His studies in Land cover integrate themes in fields like Cartography, Beijing, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer.

His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Global health, Public health, Health policy and Satellite remote sensing. His research integrates issues of Sampling, Spatial distribution, Growing season and Water cycle in his study of Vegetation. His biological study deals with issues like Global warming, which deal with fields such as China and Desertification.

His most cited work include:

  • Safeguarding human health in the Anthropocene epoch: report of The Rockefeller Foundation–Lancet Commission on planetary health (813 citations)
  • Finer resolution observation and monitoring of global land cover: first mapping results with Landsat TM and ETM+ data (790 citations)
  • Health and climate change: policy responses to protect public health (757 citations)

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

Peng Gong mainly investigates Remote sensing, Land cover, China, Vegetation and Artificial intelligence. Peng Gong works mostly in the field of Remote sensing, limiting it down to concerns involving Cartography and, occasionally, Satellite imagery. Peng Gong combines subjects such as Sample, Random forest and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer with his study of Land cover.

His China research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Hydrology, Wetland, Urbanization and Physical geography. His Urban planning research extends to Urbanization, which is thematically connected. His research in Artificial intelligence intersects with topics in Computer vision and Pattern recognition.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Remote sensing (49.58%)
  • Land cover (22.61%)
  • China (19.60%)

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

  • Land cover (22.61%)
  • China (19.60%)
  • Remote sensing (49.58%)

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

Peng Gong focuses on Land cover, China, Remote sensing, Land use and Urbanization. His Land cover study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Change detection, Climatology, Climate change, Deep learning and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer. His studies examine the connections between China and genetics, as well as such issues in Coronavirus disease 2019, with regards to 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak.

His Remote sensing research integrates issues from Impervious surface and Sample. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cartography, Remote sensing, Deforestation, Earth observation and Artificial intelligence in addition to Land use. Peng Gong has included themes like Land use, land-use change and forestry, Urban planning, Environmental resource management, Physical geography and Landscape ecology in his Urbanization study.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The 2019 report of The Lancet Countdown on health and climate change: ensuring that the health of a child born today is not defined by a changing climate (328 citations)
  • Stable classification with limited sample: transferring a 30-m resolution sample set collected in 2015 to mapping 10-m resolution global land cover in 2017 (185 citations)
  • Managing nitrogen to restore water quality in China (163 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Statistics

His main research concerns Remote sensing, Land cover, Coronavirus disease 2019, Land use and China. Peng Gong studies Synthetic aperture radar which is a part of Remote sensing. His Land cover research includes themes of Climate change and Vegetation, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index.

In general Coronavirus disease 2019 study, his work on Pandemic and Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 often relates to the realm of Nitrogen oxides and Agricultural economics, thereby connecting several areas of interest. Peng Gong has researched Land use in several fields, including Change detection, Deforestation, Global change and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Biodiversity, Climatology and Scale.
