Florian Uhl studied Geography at Kiel University and received his Diploma in 2010. He works for EOM since 2009 as a student assistant and wrote his diploma thesis “Untersuchung der spektralen Mischungsverhältnisse von Makroalgen im Felswatt vor Helgoland” under guidance of Prof. Oppelt in 2010. Between 2011 and 2013, he worked for EOM on the project „Entwicklung eines EnMap-Verfahrens zur Bestimmung von sublitoralen marinen Makrophyten“ (KelpMAP) and completed it successfully. He participated in several summer schools, an IDL/ENVI-course and several workshops and conferences during this project. From 2013 to 2014, Florian Uhl worked for the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research at the Department of Functional Ecology under the guidance of Dr. Inka Bartsch, where he continued his research on hyperspectral remote sensing of macroalgae in coastal waters and presented preliminary results at the Living Planet Conference 2013 in Edinburgh. Since mid-2014 he again works for EOM to complete his doctorate.
Within his PhD, Florian Uhl deals with the processing of hyperspectral remote sensing data in coastal waters and the mapping of macroalgae habitats.
For this purpose, he examines data from various sensors, scales, resolutions and platforms. Based on results from laboratory spectrometry, he develops algorithms for the detection of macroalgae on multisensor scale.
