Thomas Lavergne is at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute in Oslo. Thomas is engaged in several operational polar sea ice monitoring services including EUMETSAT OSI SAF, Copernicus Marine, and Climate Change Services (CMEMS, C3S) for which he processes satellite Passive Microwave data into maps of sea ice concentration, and sea ice drift. His main interest is in designing and improving algorithms, to yield better operational sea ice products. Thomas is also engaged in preparing future satellite missions, namely the Copernicus Imaging Microwave Radiometer (CIMR, cimr.eu). Meet also Thomas on Twitter: @lavergnetho.
