Jacob has worked with retrieval and validation of SST observations as well as the application in physical models. He has developed a multiplatform Optimal Interpolation scheme to provide accurate and high resolution interpolated global SST fields. Recently, he has worked with the validation and assessment of the high latitude satellite SST observations in the Arctic open ocean, in the marginal ice zone as well as sea ice surface temperatures observed from satellite.
Jacob is a member of the GHRSST Advisory Council and the Sentinel 3, SLSTR Quality Working Groups.
