Summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : order and disorder in turbulent shear flow
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1986-12)
Our thanks go to Martin Landahl for his stimulating expository lectures on recent development in "lab scale" turbulent flow. This subject was covered by him and other staff members from the experimental, analytic, and ...
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 ...
Summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : chaos
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1985-11)
The explosive growth of dynamieal systems theory in the past two decades stems in large part from the realization that it is applicable to many natural phenomena. Indeed, much o f the theoretical development has been sparked ...
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. ...

(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1960)
2009 program of studies : nonlinear waves
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-01)
The fiftieth year of the program was dedicated to Nonlinear Waves, a topic with many applications in geophysical fluid dynamics. The principal lectures were given jointly by Roger Grimshaw and Harvey Segur and between ...
2010 program of study : swirling and swimming in turbulence
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2011-06)
Swirling and Swimming in Turbulence was the theme at the 2010 GFD Program. Professors Glenn Flierl (M.I.T.), Antonello Provenzale (ISAC-CNR, Turin) and Jean-Luc Thiffeault (University of Wisconsin) were the principal ...
1989 summer study program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics : general circulation of the oceans
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-11)
The success of this summer's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Program owes much to Myrl Hendershott's excellent and engaging survey of the Oceans General Circulation, including recent developments In the Theory of Recirculation ...
The influence of convection on large-scale circulations : 1988 Summer Study Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-07)
The topic for the 30th Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Summer Program was "The Influence of Convection on Large- Scale Motions." The principal lecturer, Kerry Emanual, presented the essential elements of dry convection, ...
Summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : dynamic differentation
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-11)
Those attending G.F.D. 1984 were introduced to the novel topic of Geological Fluid Mechanics by our Principal Lecturer, Herbert Huppert. He presented his studies both as a discipline with recent fascinating successes, and ...
