Jingxuan Wei is a marine geophysicist who uses active source seismic imaging to study both the physical processes of the water column and the evolution of the solid earth. While a Ph.D. student at Texas A&M University, he used seismic oceanography techniques to observe the properties and variability of submesoscale (<10 km) to mesoscale oceanic processes within the South Atlantic Ocean. At UTIG, he is working with Dr. Sean Gulick and Dr. John Goff on near-shore sedimentary processes and seismic imaging of Chicxulub impact structure.
