Dr. Jessup joined the University of Washington as a research scientist in 1990 after receiving his Ph.D. in Oceanography and Ocean Engineering from the MIT/WHOI Joint Program. He began a program in air-sea interaction using infrared techniques that has led to a wide variety of field and laboratory investigations. His recent interests include remote sensing of river inlets and the infrared signature of breaking waves releveant to wake detection. He is Chair of the Air-Sea Interaction and Remote Sensing Department and Senior Principal Oceanographer in the Applied Physics Laboratory.
