Jörg Schulz is Climate Service & Product Manager at the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) leading the climate activities at EUMETSAT that is delivering climate data records for several applications including the Copernicus Climate Change Service operated by ECMWF. Jörg has a PhD in Meteorology from the University of Hamburg (Germany) in 1993 addressing remote sensing of energy exchange at the Ocean’s surface. Following the thesis he was working as a research scientist at the Max-Planck Institute for Meteorology (Germany) on a better understanding of aircraft induced contrails and their role for the radiation budget of the Earth’s climate system. Since 2004, Jörg is focussing on the utilisation of satellite data for climate monitoring first at the Deutscher Wetterdienst and then since 2010 at EUMETSAT. Over recent years he was involved in many European research projects and the Copernicus Climate Change Service addressing the generation of climate data records from historical, currently operated, and new instruments elaborating on new methods for uncertainty quantification and improvements of satellite instrument calibration. He authored and co-authored more than 80 publications including the architecture for space-based climate monitoring. Jörg has been engaged in international science and Earth Observation coordination leading the WCRP GEWEX Data and Analysis Panel from 2014-2016, currently chairing the Joint Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS)/ Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellite (CGMS) Working Group on Climate and also being a member of the WCRP Data Advisory Council.
