Jean Claude Brun-Cottan
Jean Claude Brun-Cottan holds B.S. and M.S. degrees in physics and fluid mechanics, focused on oceanography, and in 1967, obtained the Ph.D. on the behaviour of suspended particles in natural environments. He took on research responsibilities at the CNRS in 1968. The main focus of the studies was on the processes governing the transport, the sedimentation, and the dissolution of suspended particles in the ocean; as well as the study of the hydrodynamic and sedimentology of coastal and estuarine sediments and suspended particles. Currently, the research is mainly devoted to the tidal bore hydrodynamics and to a direct measurement of the bottom shear stress induced by permanent and oscillating flows.
