SeungHyun Son received the BS and MS degrees in oceanography
from Pusan National University, in Busan, South Korea
in 1996 and 1998, respectively. He received the PhD degree in oceanography
from the University of New Hampshire, in 2004. After postdoctoral appointments
at the University of Maine and the Bedford Institute of Oceanography, Dr. Son joined
STAR, working as a research scientist with I.M. System Group in support of
SOCD / MEB at NOAA/NESDIS.
SeungHyun Son's current research is focused on development of
bio-optical and primary production models in the turbid coastal waters as
well as validation/evaluation of Ocean Color Satellite products. Another
interest is to understand the temporal variation of phytoplankton
productivity in various spatial scales and phytoplankton dynamics as well
as a connection with physical forces and climate change using various
remote sensing data, especially ocean color data such as SeaWiFS and MODIS.
