The warm-core rings program held an intensive 2-week data processing and analysis workshop during the period 6 to 19 July 1983 at the Alton Jones Campus Conference Center of the University of Rhode Is land. The purpose of the workshop was to bring together all of the program's principle investigators, their graduate students and technical associates, and scientific collaborators in order to jointly discuss and analyze the multifaceted data sets collected on the five multi-ship cruises to Gulf Stream warm-core rings (see Warm-Core Rings Executive Committee, 1982 and Joyce and Wiebe, 1983 in Section V of this report for overviews of the field program). The workshop was structured to permit individuals and working groups maximum flexibility in organizing their work schedules (see section two, overall workshop organization plan). Lectures of 30 to 60 minutes were held in the morning and afternoon to permit investigators to summarize their findings and to foster the exchange of data and ideas about the structure, dynamics and evolution of warm-core rings. Morning lectures focused on the surface and seasonal thermocline waters of the ring core; afternoon lectures focused on the thermostad and deeper ring water masses as well as flow fields generated by interactions with the Gulf Stream and continental shelf and Slope Water. A list of lecturers and lecture titles is given in section two.
