Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Meteorology
  • Ecology

Remote sensing, Meteorology, Plateau, Water content and Vegetation are his primary areas of study. Zhongbo Su has researched Remote sensing in several fields, including Radiative transfer and Energy balance. His studies deal with areas such as Heat transfer, Atmospheric sciences and Evapotranspiration as well as Meteorology.

His research in Plateau intersects with topics in Soil science, East Asian Monsoon, Monsoon, Climatology and Normalized Difference Vegetation Index. His Water content study incorporates themes from Drainage basin, Environmental monitoring, Soil water and Brightness temperature. His Radiance study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Emissivity and Water vapor.

His most cited work include:

  • The Surface Energy Balance System (SEBS) for estimation of turbulent heat fluxes (1226 citations)
  • S-SEBI: A simple remote sensing algorithm to estimate the surface energy balance (492 citations)
  • An integrated model of soil-canopy spectral radiances, photosynthesis, fluorescence, temperature and energy balance (299 citations)

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

Zhongbo Su mainly focuses on Remote sensing, Water content, Hydrology, Atmospheric sciences and Meteorology. His Remote sensing research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Radiative transfer, Evapotranspiration and Vegetation. His Evapotranspiration research includes elements of Land cover and Scale.

His study in Water content is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Soil science, Soil water, Moisture, Brightness temperature and Surface roughness. His research investigates the connection with Atmospheric sciences and areas like Plateau which intersect with concerns in Climatology, Water cycle and Monsoon. Zhongbo Su combines subjects such as Roughness length, Energy balance and Heat flux with his study of Sensible heat.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Remote sensing (33.40%)
  • Water content (25.45%)
  • Hydrology (18.09%)

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

  • Water content (25.45%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (19.09%)
  • Remote sensing (33.40%)

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

Zhongbo Su spends much of his time researching Water content, Atmospheric sciences, Remote sensing, Brightness temperature and Soil water. The various areas that he examines in his Water content study include Surface roughness, Soil science, Data assimilation and Precipitation. His research integrates issues of Atmosphere, Eddy covariance, Ecosystem, Canopy and Plateau in his study of Atmospheric sciences.

His research in Remote sensing is mostly concerned with Remote sensing. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Infiltration, Mass transfer, Heat transfer and Surface water. In his work, Meteorology is strongly intertwined with Surface, which is a subfield of Temperature measurement.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Validation of SMAP surface soil moisture products with core validation sites (292 citations)
  • On the Use of Unmanned Aerial Systems for Environmental Monitoring (204 citations)
  • Recent third pole's rapid warming accompanies cryospheric melt and water cycle intensification and interactions between monsoon and environment : Multidisciplinary approach with observations, modeling, and analysis (118 citations)

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

  • Statistics
  • Ecology
  • Meteorology

His main research concerns Water content, Soil water, Climatology, Soil science and Brightness temperature. His Water content study combines topics in areas such as In situ, Evapotranspiration and Remote sensing, Radiometer. His Climatology research incorporates themes from Climate change, Climate services, Meteorology, Precipitation and Bayesian probability.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Spatial ecology and Elevation in addition to Meteorology. Zhongbo Su has included themes like Thermal, Atmospheric radiative transfer codes, Plateau and Data assimilation in his Soil science study. The Plateau study combines topics in areas such as Energy balance and Water cycle.
