Jörg SchulzDeutsches Zentrum für Luft- und RaumfahrtJörg Schulz has more than ten years experience in the development and application of retrieval schemes using microwave and infrared sensors (SSM/I, AVHRR, TMI, VIRS). Parameters of interest have been energy fluxes at the sea surface, rainfall, and related near surface meteorological parameters. He is involved in the development of a global satellite-derived freshwater flux climatology using microwave and infrared data and works on the error assessment of such fields. He is a member of the joint JSC/SCOR working group on air-sea fluxes.
