Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Remote sensing
  • Meteorology
  • Infrared

His primary areas of investigation include Remote sensing, Water content, Radiometry, Meteorology and Satellite. In general Remote sensing, his work in Radiometer is often linked to Spatial variability linking many areas of study. His Water content research includes themes of Soil science, Soil water, L band, Downscaling and Moisture.

His study in Radiometry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Pixel, Sea surface temperature, Salinity and Emissivity. His Meteorology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Microwave radiometer, Climate change, Ground segment, Ocean chemistry and Tiger bush. When carried out as part of a general Satellite research project, his work on Scatterometer is frequently linked to work in Scale, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

His most cited work include:

  • A Modified Soil Adjusted Vegetation Index (1513 citations)
  • Soil moisture retrieval from space: the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission (1199 citations)
  • The SMOS Mission: New Tool for Monitoring Key Elements ofthe Global Water Cycle (1156 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Remote sensing, Water content, Satellite, Meteorology and Brightness temperature. His work on Radiometer, L band and Radiometry as part of general Remote sensing research is frequently linked to Scale, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. Many of his research projects under Radiometer are closely connected to Context with Context, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.

His research on Water content also deals with topics like

  • Soil water and related Hydrology,
  • Atmospheric sciences that connect with fields like Radiative transfer. His research in Satellite intersects with topics in Remote sensing, Climatology, Data assimilation and Precipitation. His studies deal with areas such as Soil texture, Emissivity, Atmospheric radiative transfer codes and Biosphere as well as Brightness temperature.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Remote sensing (62.05%)
  • Water content (57.50%)
  • Satellite (25.45%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Water content (57.50%)
  • Remote sensing (62.05%)
  • Satellite (25.45%)

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

Yann Kerr spends much of his time researching Water content, Remote sensing, Satellite, Brightness temperature and Radiometer. He combines subjects such as Salinity, Retrieval algorithm, Atmospheric sciences and Meteorology, Data assimilation with his study of Water content. His Remote sensing study is mostly concerned with L band and Radiometry.

Yann Kerr has included themes like Remote sensing, Land cover, Climatology and Precipitation in his Satellite study. His research investigates the link between Brightness temperature and topics such as Moisture that cross with problems in Soil science. His biological study deals with issues like Snowpack, which deal with fields such as Penetration depth.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Modelling the Passive Microwave Signature from Land Surfaces: A Review of Recent Results and Application to the L-Band SMOS SMAP Soil Moisture Retrieval Algorithms (164 citations)
  • SMOS-IC: An Alternative SMOS Soil Moisture and Vegetation Optical Depth Product (117 citations)
  • Satellite passive microwaves reveal recent climate-induced carbon losses in African drylands. (81 citations)
