François Steinmetz

PhD Physics, Research & Developement

His experience relates to remote sensing from space, radiative transfer, inversion methods and data processing and, in particular, to the atmospheric correction methods for ocean color. He is in charge of the water quality applications.

He is the developer of Polymer software and, as such, is involved in various projects related to ocean color (e.g. SACSO, OC_CCI) and water quality (e.g. CERTO, Copernicus Global Land Service).

  • Since 2008: Research engineer at HYGEOS. Head of ocean color and water quality applications
  • 2008: PhD, study of the correction of the atmospheric scattering and the sun glint for the observations of ocean colour from space (Université Lille 1)
  • 2004: Engineer from Ecole Centrale de Lille
