Research interests

The research activities are mainly in the areas of remote sensing of sea ice and oceanographic processes including ocean acoustics.   In sea ice research data from different types of satellite sensors are used for studies of sea ice classification, drift, thickness and processes such as leads, polynyas and ridges. Validation of sea ice remote sensing data uses data from in situ observations. The research is focused on development of operational observing systems for the Arctic seas using both satellite, in situ, and underwater sensors.
