Dr. Shi received his Ph.D. in Geography from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1991. He then joined the Institute for Computational Earth System Science at UCSB as a research scientist. His research interests include modeling of the microwave signature of snow and soil, image processing and analysis, and inversion model developments for retrieving physical parameters from remote sensing data. He was the principal investigators for several NASA founded projects including “Hydros - The Hydrosphere Status Mission” and a co-principal investigator for SIR-C, ERS-1, ERS-2 projects using the radar to measure snow properties. Currently, he is the principal investigators of the ESA’s ENVISAT and JAXA’s ALOS and the principal and co- principal investigators for NASA founded projects of “Snow Retrieval Algorithm Development for a Satellite-based Snow Processes Mission” and “Muli-Resolution Snow Products for the Hydrologic Sciences” as well as “SMAP - Soil Moisture Active Passive Mission”.
His accomplishments have been in three main research areas: fundamental contributions to the developments of theory, quantitative retrieval algorithms, and novel analysis methods in active and passive microwave remote sensing of soil moisture, snow and vegetation properties. He has published more than 150 papers in journals and proceedings on microwave remote sensing of snow, soil, and vegetation properties.
