Short description of research profile
  • Marine dynamics (hydrodynamic modeling; wind wave modeling; coastal hydro- and morphodynamics; statistical analysis and risk assessment)
  • Acoustic remote sensing (hydroacoustics; acoustic identification of objects; seabed mapping; biomass estimation)
  • Satellite remote sensing (methodology and applications to the Baltic Sea; surface temperature, pigments, primary production, etc.)
  • Marine optics (optical properties of sea water, phytoplankton, suspended matter etc.)
  • Sea ice & polar research (sea ice physics and modeling; ice-ocean-atmosphere interactions in polar regions)
