Simon Yueh mainly investigates Remote sensing, Radiometer, Meteorology, Brightness temperature and Wind speed. His Remote sensing study incorporates themes from Salinity and Active passive. Simon Yueh has included themes like Earth system science and Water content in his Radiometer study.

Simon Yueh has researched Water content in several fields, including Soil map, Soil water, Calibration and Radar imaging. The various areas that Simon Yueh examines in his Brightness temperature study include Surface roughness, Sea surface temperature, Diffuse sky radiation and Atmosphere of Earth. His Wind speed study which covers Backscatter that intersects with Special sensor microwave/imager, Ku band, Attenuation and Rain rate.

His most cited work include:

  • The Aquarius/SAC-D mission: Designed to meet the salinity remote-sensing challenge (315 citations)
  • Validation of SMAP surface soil moisture products with core validation sites (292 citations)
  • Assessment of the SMAP Passive Soil Moisture Product (273 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Remote sensing, Radiometer, Meteorology, Water content and Brightness temperature. Simon Yueh has included themes like Snow and Scatterometer in his Remote sensing study. In his research on the topic of Radiometer, Climatology and Arctic is strongly related with Salinity.

He works mostly in the field of Meteorology, limiting it down to topics relating to Radiative transfer and, in certain cases, Scattering, as a part of the same area of interest. The Water content study combines topics in areas such as Moisture and Soil science, Soil water. His Brightness temperature research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Sea surface temperature, Temperature measurement and Atmospheric sciences.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Remote sensing (63.70%)
  • Radiometer (33.70%)
  • Meteorology (30.37%)

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

  • Remote sensing (63.70%)
  • Water content (26.67%)
  • Radiometer (33.70%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Remote sensing, Water content, Radiometer, Brightness temperature and Active passive. His studies deal with areas such as Image resolution and Snow as well as Remote sensing. His Water content research incorporates elements of Moisture, Algorithm, Atmospheric sciences and Soil science.

His Radiometer study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as National Snow and Ice Data Center, Meteorology and Calibration. The various areas that Simon Yueh examines in his Meteorology study include Soil map and Correlation coefficient. His work focuses on many connections between Brightness temperature and other disciplines, such as Sea surface temperature, that overlap with his field of interest in Temperature measurement.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Development and assessment of the SMAP enhanced passive soil moisture product (140 citations)
  • The SMAP and Copernicus Sentinel 1A/B microwave active-passive high resolution surface soil moisture product (38 citations)
  • An Assessment of the Differences Between Spatial Resolution and Grid Size for the SMAP Enhanced Soil Moisture Product over Homogeneous Sites (31 citations)

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

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Optics
  • Meteorology

His scientific interests lie mostly in Water content, Remote sensing, Radiometer, Active passive and Brightness temperature. In general Remote sensing, his work in Remote sensing is often linked to Tropical cyclone forecasting linking many areas of study. His research integrates issues of National Snow and Ice Data Center, Meteorology, Microwave and L band in his study of Radiometer.

His research investigates the link between Meteorology and topics such as Wind stress that cross with problems in Surface wave. Simon Yueh combines subjects such as Polarization, Atmospheric sciences and Retrieval algorithm with his study of Active passive. His research investigates the connection between Brightness temperature and topics such as Calibration that intersect with problems in Correlation coefficient and Soil map.
