Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecosystem
  • Statistics
  • Climate change

Zhiliang Zhu mainly focuses on Remote sensing, Land cover, Satellite imagery, Vegetation and Cartography. His studies deal with areas such as Spatial ecology and Disturbance as well as Remote sensing. His Land cover research is under the purview of Land use.

His work in Land use tackles topics such as Thematic map which are related to areas like Mangrove. His Satellite imagery study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Mangrove restoration, IUCN Red List, Blue carbon and Geospatial analysis. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Impervious surface and Random forest.

His most cited work include:

  • DEVELOPMENT OF A GLOBAL LAND COVER CHARACTERISTICS DATABASE AND IGBP DISCOVER FROM 1 KM AVHRR DATA (1867 citations)
  • Status and distribution of mangrove forests of the world using earth observation satellite data (1414 citations)
  • Finer resolution observation and monitoring of global land cover: first mapping results with Landsat TM and ETM+ data (790 citations)

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

Zhiliang Zhu spends much of his time researching Land cover, Remote sensing, Ecosystem, Land use and Forestry. By researching both Land cover and Geological survey, Zhiliang Zhu produces research that crosses academic boundaries. His work in the fields of Satellite imagery overlaps with other areas such as Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer.

Zhiliang Zhu combines subjects such as Climate change and Atmospheric sciences with his study of Ecosystem. His Land use study combines topics in areas such as Carbon sequestration, Forest inventory, Climatology and Ecoregion. His studies deal with areas such as National park, Forest ecology and Spatial variability as well as Forestry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Land cover (25.90%)
  • Remote sensing (25.18%)
  • Ecosystem (20.14%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Remote sensing (25.18%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (10.07%)
  • Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer (5.76%)

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

Zhiliang Zhu mainly focuses on Remote sensing, Atmospheric sciences, Moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer, Land cover and Ecosystem. His research in the fields of Field overlaps with other disciplines such as Landscape modeling. His work deals with themes such as Soil carbon, Land use and Greenhouse gas, which intersect with Atmospheric sciences.

As part of his studies on Land cover, Zhiliang Zhu frequently links adjacent subjects like Climatology. His Ecosystem study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Productivity and Pinus contorta. He works mostly in the field of Ecosystem model, limiting it down to topics relating to Carbon sequestration and, in certain cases, Restoration ecology, Forest management, Ecosystem respiration, Primary production and Vegetation, as a part of the same area of interest.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Stable classification with limited sample: transferring a 30-m resolution sample set collected in 2015 to mapping 10-m resolution global land cover in 2017 (185 citations)
  • Mapping essential urban land use categories in China (EULUC-China): preliminary results for 2018 (37 citations)
  • Long-term land cover dynamics (1986-2016) of Northeast China derived from a multi-temporal landsat archive (16 citations)

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

  • Ecosystem
  • Statistics
  • Biodiversity

His main research concerns Land cover, Climatology, Term, Cellular automaton and Kernel density estimation. His Land cover study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Remote sensing. His studies in Cellular automaton integrate themes in fields like Cartography and Impervious surface.
