My scientific interest has had two components: models of the atmosphere and studies of the climate. My work started within atmospheric modelling, especially aiming at the implementation of spectral models in numerical weather forecast systems. Together with a colleague I made the very first 10-day global weather forecast using the spectral method. And we also made the very first non-linear normal mode initialization of realistic data for the same model. I have employed global model to the study of ozone in climate context. In the last decade or so I have worked on climate issues of different kinds, fex the possible impact of Sun on climate, CO2-fluxes in the North Atlantic Ocean (NEAREX-project) and data analyses on the North Atlantic Oscillation.

Main research interests include validation of satellite observations and the use of satellite observations in combination with in situ observations or hydrodynamic models, to study physical oceanographic processes. The physical processes include detection of Greenland-Scotland ridge overflow, North Atlantic mixed layer deepening and sea level in the North Sea.

Recently, JLH has worked with data assimilation of satellite observations and the validation of SST and altimetry observations. He has developed a multiplatform 3-D Optimal Interpolation scheme to provide accurate and high resolution interpolated SST fields for the North Sea and Baltic Sea. The scheme is fully operational and the results can be seen at:

Født 20/9 1943, student 1961, fast lærervikar 1962,værnepligtig i Søværnet, 1962-64, stipendiat 1968-72 i NATO, Nordisk Kollegium for Fysisk Oceanografi i Bergen og på Københavns Universitet, adjunkt og lektor på Københavns Universitet siden 1972 og frem til i dag. Danmarks repræsentant for IAPSO ( International Assoc. for the Physical Sciences of the Oceans), dansk medlem af Det Internationale Havforskningsråd, ICES, medlem af Danmarks Naturvidenskabelige Akademi, medlem af Editorial Board på tidsskriftet Oceanologia, mangeårigt medlem af Fysikstudienævnet på Københavns Universitet, reviewer for en længere række videnskabelige forlag, udenlandske forskningsråd og NASA. Undertegnede har siden 1968 deltaget i en lang række ekspeditioner til søs lokalt og globalt med en samlet ekspeditionstid på over 3 år på ca. 15 forskellige forskningsfartøjer. I det danske Bæltprojekt 1973-77 var jeg ganske aktiv, og i 1987 sad jeg i det danske 6-mands ekspertpanel, der tegnede fagkonturen af Havplan-90.

Akademiske grader:Magisterkonferens 1971 i oceanografi med støttefag i matematik, fysik, kemi, geologi, geografi og meteorologi, licentiatgrad i fysisk oceanografi, 1974 og doktorgrad i 1986, som bl. a.udkom i reference- og 3-bindsværket Oceanography, Landolt- Börnstein, Springer International.

Lærebogsforfatter til 3 lærebøger  i fysisk oceanografi, som er pensum i fysisk oceanografi på vores bachelor- og kandidatuddannelse, medforfatter til bøger om historisk oceanografi, hydrografi og oceanografi samt om satellit-oceanografi udgivet på de såkaldt velanskrevne og internationale forlag, Plenum Press, Springer International, Oxford University Press, Reidel Publishing Comp., SPIE Milestone Series etc. Konkret har jeg leveret bogbidrag til de 3 bøger Oceanography from Space I og II samt til Large-scale Oceanography and Satellites.Hertil kommer en række bogbidrag til danske og skandinaviske forlag. Endelig har undertegnede gennem årene virket som inviteret gæsteforelæser på omkring 20 universiteter i Europa, Nordamerika, Asien og Australien samt som doktoropponent i marin optik, remote sensing og marin biologi i knapt 10 tilfælde.

En optælling af undertegnedes  videnskabelige publikationer peger på ca. 100 bidrag indenfor fysik, geofysik, fysisk oceanografi, optisk oceanografi, fysisk biologi, fysisk kemi, hydrografi, fotometri, remote sensing, bio-optik, altimetri og instrumentudvikling.

Løbende aktiviteter p.t  er udvikling af satellit-algoritmer til estimering af biomasse i både oceanernes og de kystnære farvandes overfladevand, tele-tsunamier, lokale tsunamier og stormflod i samarbejde med egne studerende, post docs, udenlandske institutter og  DMI. Hertil kommer naturligvis den løbende undervisning, vejledning, sidefagssuppleringskurser for gymnasielærere, samt løbende gæsteoptræden for gæster i og udenfor huset.
