Jun ChoiGraduate Student
Jun performed field experiments to quantify near-surface lateral dispersion and mixing characteristics offshore in Lake Michigan. To do this, Jun acquired and analyzed velocity data from the center of Lake Michigan’s central basin, showing the offshore importance of the tide-like near-inertial oscillations for most of the year. Jun also planned and carried out a seven-day research cruise to the middle of Lake Michigan on the R/V Blue Heron , where we released and tracked both dye and drifters to quantify lateral dispersion in the lake. Jun now is an Assistant Professor in Pukyung National University in Busan, South Korea where he teaches courses in oceanography and performs research on mixed layer dynamics.
