Research Focus

The objective of my work is to assess the significance of satellite-based measurements of essential climate variables at the sea surface in coastal waters of the North Sea. Sea surface salinity and sea surface temperature are of particular interest. Necessary ground-truthing data will be collected with a purpose-built catamaran.
