Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

Stephen D. Prince focuses on Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, Remote sensing, Vegetation, Primary production and Advanced very-high-resolution radiometer. His Normalized Difference Vegetation Index study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Hydrology, Growing season, Rangeland and Land degradation. His work on Remote sensing as part of general Remote sensing research is often related to Production, thus linking different fields of science.

Stephen D. Prince has researched Vegetation in several fields, including Land cover, Satellite remote sensing and Precipitation. His Primary production research includes elements of Hay, Forestry and Yield. His Advanced very-high-resolution radiometer research incorporates elements of Mathematical model and Atmospheric sciences.

His most cited work include:

  • Global Primary Production: A Remote Sensing Approach (774 citations)
  • Estimation of tropical forest structural characteristics using large-footprint lidar (485 citations)
  • A model of regional primary production for use with coarse resolution satellite data (453 citations)

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

Stephen D. Prince mostly deals with Remote sensing, Vegetation, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, Primary production and Advanced very-high-resolution radiometer. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Land cover and Meteorology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Hydrology, Climate change, Satellite imagery and Precipitation in addition to Vegetation.

Stephen D. Prince combines subjects such as Rangeland, Growing season, Atmospheric correction, Physical geography and Land degradation with his study of Normalized Difference Vegetation Index. His Primary production study incorporates themes from Atmospheric sciences, Carbon cycle and Photosynthetically active radiation. In his study, Boreal is strongly linked to Biomass, which falls under the umbrella field of Advanced very-high-resolution radiometer.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Remote sensing (37.67%)
  • Vegetation (30.14%)
  • Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (21.92%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2006-2020)?

  • Land degradation (12.33%)
  • Remote sensing (37.67%)
  • Vegetation (30.14%)

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

His primary areas of study are Land degradation, Remote sensing, Vegetation, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index and Desertification. His Land degradation research includes themes of Arid, Agroforestry, Biodiversity and Sustainability. His Remote sensing and Satellite imagery study in the realm of Remote sensing connects with subjects such as Production.

His Vegetation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Primary production and Precipitation. Stephen D. Prince has researched Normalized Difference Vegetation Index in several fields, including Pixel, Climatology and Advanced very-high-resolution radiometer. In his research, Hydrology and Rain use efficiency is intimately related to Physical geography, which falls under the overarching field of Desertification.

Between 2006 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Can human-induced land degradation be distinguished from the effects of rainfall variability? A case study in South Africa (425 citations)
  • Greenness in semi-arid areas across the globe 1981–2007 — an Earth Observing Satellite based analysis of trends and drivers (364 citations)
  • GLOBAL POTENTIAL NET PRIMARY PRODUCTION PREDICTED FROM VEGETATION CLASS, PRECIPITATION, AND TEMPERATURE (244 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Agriculture
  • Ecosystem

His primary scientific interests are in Vegetation, Remote sensing, Hydrology, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index and Land cover. His research integrates issues of Ecosystem and Precipitation in his study of Vegetation. He works in the field of Remote sensing, focusing on Change detection in particular.

His studies examine the connections between Hydrology and genetics, as well as such issues in Physical geography, with regards to Soil retrogression and degradation. His studies in Normalized Difference Vegetation Index integrate themes in fields like Albedo, Bidirectional reflectance distribution function, Advanced very-high-resolution radiometer and Land degradation. His work is dedicated to discovering how Land cover, Primary production are connected with Ecosystem model and other disciplines.
