Research Topics


I'm interested in remote sensing applications, coastal oceanography, marine optics and atmospheric research. My field work is concentrated in the Benguela upwelling area, the Baltic Sea, NW-Africa and Indonesian waters.


  • Study of hydrogen sulphide events and sulfur plumes in Namibian coastal area
  • Measurement and interpretation of inherent and apparent optical water properties
  • Coastal processes in Namibian waters, Baltic Sea, NW-Africa and Indonesian waters
  • Validation of ocean color and microwave satellite sensors
  • Investigation of phytoplankton blooms
  • Analysis of optical measurements from Gliders and Argo floats
  • Remote sensing of submarine volcanic eruptions
  • Influence of Saharan dust on optical water properties and phytoplankton development
  • Impact of Saharan dust on Level-2 products of ocean color and microwave sensors
  • Spectral effects of Saharan dust on PAR in comparison to the impact of clouds
  • Spectral effects of atmospheric dust on the estimation of chlorophyll-a concentration
