Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Erosion
  • Statistics
  • Hydrology

Petteri Alho spends much of his time researching Remote sensing, Laser scanning, Lidar, Flood myth and Point bar. His Remote sensing research includes elements of Point cloud, Mean squared error, Forest inventory, Bathymetry and Vegetation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Digital elevation model and Mobile mapping.

His Flood myth research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Glacial period, Floodplain, Jökulhlaup, Hydrological modelling and Calibration. His Floodplain study is concerned with the larger field of Hydrology. Petteri Alho performs multidisciplinary study in the fields of Point bar and Meander via his papers.

His most cited work include:

  • Individual tree biomass estimation using terrestrial laser scanning (159 citations)
  • Advances in Forest Inventory Using Airborne Laser Scanning (126 citations)
  • National scale assessment of climate change impacts on flooding in Finland (123 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Hydrology, Geomorphology, Flood myth, Remote sensing and Laser scanning. His Hydrology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Sediment and Flow. His Flow research integrates issues from Acoustic Doppler current profiler and Open-channel flow.

As part of the same scientific family, Petteri Alho usually focuses on Flood myth, concentrating on Glacial lake and intersecting with Meltwater. His research in Remote sensing intersects with topics in Point cloud, Terrain and Bathymetry. The various areas that he examines in his Laser scanning study include Forest management, Forest inventory, Change detection and Mobile mapping.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Hydrology (63.08%)
  • Geomorphology (44.62%)
  • Flood myth (34.62%)

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

  • Hydrology (63.08%)
  • Erosion (31.54%)
  • Open-channel flow (5.38%)

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

Petteri Alho mainly investigates Hydrology, Erosion, Open-channel flow, Sediment transport and Flow. Particularly relevant to Bank is his body of work in Hydrology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Channel and Deposition, Sediment in addition to Erosion.

His study on Deposition also encompasses disciplines like

  • Bank erosion which is related to area like Flood myth,
  • Ephemeral key together with Bed load, Bedform and Hydrograph. He interconnects Subarctic climate and Spatial variability in the investigation of issues within Open-channel flow. Petteri Alho works mostly in the field of Flow, limiting it down to concerns involving Meander and, occasionally, Flow measurement.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Spatial variation of flow characteristics in a subarctic meandering river in ice‐covered and open‐channel conditions: A 2D hydrodynamic modelling approach (10 citations)
  • Spatial variation of flow characteristics in a subarctic meandering river in ice‐covered and open‐channel conditions: A 2D hydrodynamic modelling approach (10 citations)
  • Topographical change caused by moderate and small floods in a gravel bed ephemeral river – a depth-averaged morphodynamic simulation approach (9 citations)
