Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Meteorology
  • Remote sensing
  • Aerosol

Yoram J. Kaufman mainly focuses on Remote sensing, Aerosol, Meteorology, Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer and AERONET. His research integrates issues of Atmosphere, Atmospheric correction, Spectroradiometer, Water vapor and Radiative transfer in his study of Remote sensing. His Aerosol study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Precipitation, Cloud physics and Radiance.

He combines subjects such as Cloud cover and Geostationary orbit with his study of Meteorology. Yoram J. Kaufman interconnects Image resolution, Algorithm and Indian ocean in the investigation of issues within Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer. As a member of one scientific family, Yoram J. Kaufman mostly works in the field of AERONET, focusing on Angstrom exponent and, on occasion, Sun photometer.

His most cited work include:

  • AERONET-a federated instrument network and data archive for aerosol Characterization (5056 citations)

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

Yoram J. Kaufman focuses on Aerosol, Atmospheric sciences, Meteorology, Remote sensing and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer. When carried out as part of a general Aerosol research project, his work on AERONET is frequently linked to work in Pollution, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. In the subject of general Atmospheric sciences, his work in Forcing is often linked to Effective radius, thereby combining diverse domains of study.

The Meteorology study combines topics in areas such as Cloud cover, Climate model and Liquid water content. Yoram J. Kaufman has included themes like Image resolution, Algorithm, Inversion and Natural hazard in his Remote sensing study. His Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer study incorporates themes from Stokes parameters, Albedo, Spectroradiometer, Radiance and Radiometry.

Between 2005 and 2013, his most popular works were:

  • Second‐generation operational algorithm: Retrieval of aerosol properties over land from inversion of Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer spectral reflectance (952 citations)
  • Global aerosol climatology from the MODIS satellite sensors (577 citations)
  • The Bodélé depression: a single spot in the Sahara that provides most of the mineral dust to the Amazon forest (243 citations)

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

  • Meteorology
  • Optics
  • Infrared

His main research concerns Aerosol, Atmospheric sciences, Meteorology, AERONET and Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer. His Aerosol research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cloud cover, Climatology, Remote sensing and Precipitation. The Cloud cover study which covers Sea salt aerosol that intersects with Cloud top and Water vapor.

His research in Remote sensing tackles topics such as Inversion which are related to areas like Troposphere. The various areas that he examines in his Atmospheric sciences study include Cloud albedo, Atmosphere, Climate change and Cloud forcing. His Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Algorithm and Cloud fraction.
