2015 program of study : stochastic processes in atmospheric & oceanic dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2016-11)
Stochastic Processes in Atmospheric & Oceanic Dynamics was the theme at the 2015 GFD Program. Professors Charlie Doering (University of Michigan) and Henk Dijkstra (University of Utrecht) were the principal lecturers. ...
Geophysical fluid dynamics : notes on the 1960 Summer Study Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1960)
1980 summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : coherent features in geophysical flows
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-11)
Four principal lecturers shored the task of presenting the subject "Coherent Features in Geophysical Flows" to the participants of the twenty-second geophysical fluid dynamics summer program. Glenn Flierl introduced ...
Conceptual models of the climate : 2003 program of study, Non-Newtonian geophysical fluid dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2004-02)
Non-Newtonian fluids occur commonly in our world. These fluids, such as toothpaste, saliva, oils, mud and lava, exhibit a number of behaviors that are different from Newtonian fluids and have a number of additional ...
Order and disorder in planetary dynamos : summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-05)
Our principal lecturer, Stephen Childress, can be seen emerging from the "magnetic cottage" he constructed to edify those of us who attended G.F.D. '87. His central theme was the kinematic properties of the "fast" ...
Geometrical methods in fluid dynamics : 1993 Summer study program in fluid dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993)
"Geometrcal methods in fluid dynamics" were the subject of the 1993 GFD session. Paricipants explored the applications of Hamiltonian fluid mechanics and related ideas about symmetry and conservation laws to problems in ...
Conceptual models of the climate : 2002 program of study, Bounds on turbulent transport
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2003-07)
The subject of "Bounds of Turbulent Transport" was introduced in a series of ten lectures. The six lecturers constitute almost all the contributors to this subject. The subject was introduced and foundations laid by five ...
Summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : stellar fluid dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-10)
The 1990 program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics had as its special topic "Stellar Fluid Dynamics". Introductory lectures by Edward Spiegel and Jean-Paul Zahn paved the way for more specialized seminars on solar oscillations, ...
2006 program of studies : ice
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-03)
Study Program. Professor Grae Worster (University of Cambridge) was the principal lecturer, and navigated our path through the fluid dynamics of icy processes in GFD. Towards the end of Grae’s lectures, we also held the ...
2012 program of study : coherent structures
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2013-11)
The 2012 GFD Program theme was Coherent structures with Professors Jeffrey Weiss of the University of Colorado at Boulder and Edgar Knobloch of the University of California at Berkeley serving as principal lecturers. ...
